A couple of months ago it was rumored that actress Julianne Moore may be up for the role of Alma Coin in the last two installments of The Hunger Games movie franchise. After some time it’s finally been confirmed that the actress will indeed take on the role of the powerful woman.
For those of you who may not know, the character Alma Coin is the head of the rebellion that’s happening against The Capitol in the books. She ends up recruiting Katniss onto her side after some spoiler-y events transpire in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2. Those of you who’ve read the books know what I’m talking about here. Julianne Moore is the kind of strong-willed actress that fits perfectly with this role, which continues the long line of fine casting that’s been going on for this series so far. It’s great to see how everyone has gained a wonderful fascination with The Hunger Games movie franchise which in some ways is a breath of fresh air compared to the bogged down, and very unhealthy, teen romance we saw in other adolescent-centered movie franchises in recent years.
Now if you’re a fan of The Hunger Games and can’t wait for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire to come out in theaters, well then you’re in luck.
