The high quality actors that Lionsgate has managed to lock in for their "Hunger Games" franchise is rather impressive. From the title character found in Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence, to Donald Sutherland, Woody Harrelson and the always incredible Philip Seymour Hoffman in the next installment, talent in certainly in full force.

Now comes word of yet another high caliber actress that may join the ranks. The lovely Julianne Moore is in talks to play President Alma Coin, the leader of District 13, in "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1". Moore certainly has proven she can play any character under the sun as seen in such roles as "Boogie Nights", "The Hours" which earned her a Supporting Actress Academy Award nomination and more recently, "The Kids Are Alright". President Coin is a tough lady and a very fascinating character, and I have no doubt that Moore would crush the role.

Director Francis Lawrence, who helmed "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" has signed on to helm both installments of the "Mockingjay" films.

Do you think Moore is the right actress for the role? Let us know in the comments section below!
