Julianne Moore joins ‘Hunger Games’ cast as President Alma Coin

Four-time Oscar nominee Julianne Moore has been cast as President Alma Coin, the ruthless leader of the rebellion, in two upcoming Hunger Games films. 

The 52-year-old actress will star alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay parts one and two.

Based on Suzanne Collins' best-selling book – the third in the Hunger Games trilogy – Mockingjay sees Coin leading District 13 alongside Katniss Everdeen in the fight against the oppressive Capitol. 

The movies are slated for release in November 2014 and November 2015. First, fans await Catching Fire, the second film in the action-packed film series, which is set to hit theaters on Nov. 22.
