While it’s been speculated for weeks, Lionsgate made it official on Twitter today: Julianne Moore cast as President Alma Coin in ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1&2’!
That’s right, the Oscar nominee (it’s very odd to not call her a winner), Golden Globe and SAG winner is joining Jennifer Lawrence in the blockbuster franchise for the third and fourth films.
In the novel, President Alma Coin is described as “being about 50 years old. She has grey hair that falls in an unbroken sheet to her shoulders, her eyes were a pale grey, described by Katniss as looking like ‘all the color was sucked away’.”
Julianne’s beautiful pale skin will work well for that, and Moore loves her wigs, so the grey hair will be no problem.
What do you think of the casting?
