FX's Y: The Last Man Adaptation Adds Diane Lane to Pilot Cast

Actress Diane Lane is returning the world of DC Comics superheroes to lead the cast of TV series Y: The Last Man.

Back in April FX Networks ordered a pilot based on the acclaimed post-apocalyptic science fiction comic book series Y: The Last Man, and now The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Barry Koeoghan (Dunkirk, The Killing of a Sacred Deer) will star as the titular Yorick Brown, a role earmarked for Shia LaBeouf a decade ago.

Created in comics form by Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra, Y focuses on Yorick, an amateur escape artist who has become the lone male human survivor after a mysterious plague killed off everyone else with a Y chromosome - including all male animals. His sister Hero (Imogen Poots) is an EMT who crosses personal and professional lines due to an "intense emotional trauma". He is repped by WME, Management 360, and Troika.

Lane's role of Jennifer is a first-term junior senator who has already made a name for herself in political circles for her willingness to put personal ideals ahead of politics.

Another rich character is 355, who will be played by Lashana Lynch, "a Secret Service agent who performs the duties of her job with the utmost professionalism, even under the most unexpected set of circumstances".
