Needing someone to play a female politician with questionable, manipulative motives, naturally Hunger Games producers turned to Game Change star Julianne Moore, because it’s 2013 and we’re still making Sarah Palin jokes. Oh, real funny, Hunger Games. Just can't let it go, can you? Anyway, confirming some earlier rumors, Moore joins Mockingjay as Alma Coin, President of District 13, who rises to power through some rather clever manipulation of Katniss Everdeen, and the fact that she’s the only one in the world of Hunger Games with a semi-normal name. Coin is described as abrasive and intimidating, but that will now be slightly undercut by the fact that you’ve seen her naked.
