Episode 113 of Hunger Games Fireside Chat will air live this Monday, July 1, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! This week, our panel of experts will include Crystal from Mockingjay.net and FictionalFood.net, Courtney from Welcome to District 12, Tiffany from Victor’s Village, and Ariel of Nerdy, Wordy, and Over Thirty!
– We’ll continue our series of Mockingjay casting episodes by talking about who we think should play/could play President Alma Coin, the duplicitous leader of District 13. We’ll discuss fan favorites, our personal favorites, and YOUR favorites. If you have any thoughts on casting Coin, leave us a comment and we might read it during the show!
– We’ll also address the Julianne Moore rumor! On Thursday of last week, Deadline reported that Julianne Moore is being “eyed” by Lionsgate and Francis Lawrence to play the role of Coin. Coincidentally, Deadline’s report came a mere two days after we and the other fan sites wrote about Moore in our Campaigning for Coin series. Hm… (This report was also “confirmed” by The Hollywood Reporter.)
– Additionally, if there’s time, we’ll try to answer the question: Did Katniss have to kill Coin? (Leave your personal response in the comments below!)
“She’s fifty or so, with gray hair that falls in an unbroken sheet to her shoulders. I’m somewhat fascinated by her hair, since it’s so uniform, so without a flaw, a wisp, even a split end. Her eyes are gray, but not like those of people from the Seam. They’re very pale, as if almost all the color has been sucked out of them. The color of slush that you wish would melt away.”
“And finally, there’s his assessment of Coin. What’s irrefutable is that she’s done exactly what he said. Let the Capitol and the districts run one another into the ground and then sauntered in to take power. Even if that was her plan, it doesn’t mean she dropped those parachutes. Victory was already in her grasp. Everything was in her grasp.
