Who will be OFFICIALLY casted next? Who will be next on the rumor mill?

Please note that Melissa Leo is no longer in the running for Mags. And Lionsgate still has to confirm Sam Claflin as Finnick. Until then, we are considering him to be a rumor (we also think he may be casted last since he is one of the more important supporting characters).
