Julianne Moore Might be Panem’s OTHER President in The Hunger Games
Alma Coin will kill for your vote.
Donald Sutherland certainly brought a lot to the table as President Snow in “The Hunger Games” franchise. The character isn’t really seen all that much in the books, but he was all over the movie and, we assume, the subsequent movies. (There will be 4 in all, in case you’ve forgotten.)
The latest report from “The Hunger Games” world finds Julianne Moore being eyed for the crucial role of President Alma Coin, the leader of the rebellion that recruits heroine Katniss Everdeen to help battle the mean folks in the Capitol led by Snow.
Coin won’t appear in the upcoming “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”, though I guess they could put her in there towards the end or thereabouts, setting the stage for her big role in the final two movies, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1″ and “Part 2″.
From the sounds of it, Moore has been offered the gig. I suspect she’ll sign on. It’s not a particularly heavy role, but it is a very crucial one, and Moore could easily handle it with the right amount of drama. Alma Coin never really had much sex appeal in the books, but I’m sure Moore could inject a little of that, too.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” opens November 22, 2013, and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson. Francis Lawrence directs.
