'Hunger Games': Julianne Moore cast as President Coin
Julianne Moore, the four-time Oscar nominee who also played Sarah Palin in HBO’s Game Change, has been cast as President Alma Coin, the steely leader of the rebellion in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2. In Suzanne Collins’ best-selling books, Coin leads the fight against President Snow and the Capitol that began in the mysterious District 13. Katniss and Coin are reluctant allies at the beginning, due to the need to rally around a symbol — Katniss as heroic Mockingjay — but she begins to suspect that Coin is as untrustworthy as the man she aims to replace.
The third and fourth installments of the Hunger Games are slated for release in November 2014 and November 2015. Catching Fire arrives in theaters on Nov. 22.
