RUMOR: Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore in early talks to play President Coin in 'Mockingjay'?

We still have about 5 months until the premiere of the much anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games  Catching Fire, but we guess it's time to say this: Let the casting news and rumors for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay begin! According to Deadline (a reliable source), 4-time Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore is in early talks for the role of President Alma Coin in Mockingjay.

As The Hunger Games moves into the final two movies culled from the Suzanne Collins novel Mockingjay, I’ve heard that Lionsgate and director Francis Lawrence are eye-ing Julianne Moore to play the role of President Alma Coin. She is the manipulative politician who figures brightly in the finale as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) becomes a symbol of rebellion against the autocratic Capitol government.
This is likely to happen quickly,and Moore would star in both of the final films, which brings back Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth and the returning cast, along with Philip Seymour Hoffman, who will be making his first appearance in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which the studio is planning to bring to San Diego Comic-Con in July.
What are your thoughts Hunger Gamers? Would Julianne Moore be perfect for President Coin? Sound off in the comments.
