Julianne Moore confirmed for Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2

I could have sworn this already came out (UPDATE: It did), but we have confirmation that Julianne Moore will play President Alma Coin in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2.

Without giving too much away, Moore will play the President of  District 13 who you will soon find out is a lot more complicated than it seems. Click the jump for some spoilers on Coin.

Like I said in a previous post which is linked above, here are some spoilers on exactly what President Coin has to do with all of this.

Basically, Alma is the leader of the rebellion in District 13. Yes, there is a 13th District. Surprise!
Coin rescues Katniss, Finnick, and Beetee from the arena in Catching Fire and brings them to District 13. She hopes to use Katniss as a symbol (and more like a tool) of the rebellion to overthrow the Capitol and President Snow. However, she was unable to bring Peeta and Johanna to 13 so they are captured and tortured by the Capitol. Coin is severely disliked by Katniss due to arrogance, ruthlessness and lust for power and control.
Long story short, after President Snow is captured Katniss chooses to execute Coin instead of Snow and Coin falls to her death. Katniss is then taken away and deemed mentally unstable.
