  • Y The Last Man Cast Announced Barry Keoghan to Star

The Unfaithful star, who played Superman's mum in Justice League, Man of Steel, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, will star in the drama based on the acclaimed post-apocalyptic science fiction DC comic book series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra.

Keoghan will be joined in the cast by Imogen Poots, Lashana Lynch, Juliana Canfield, and Marin Ireland.

As for Yorick, the titular last man who is possibly the last surviving male following a global plague that attacks the Y chromosome, the honor goes to Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk, The Killing of a Sacred Deer).

And when we say casting iceberg, Lane is just one of the people added to the show, playing Senator Jennifer Brown, a politician who has made a name for herself putting persona ideas above governmental wrangling. A tough and confident EMT, Hero nurses a deep emotional trauma that often leads her to cross personal and professional lines.


Now living in a world entirely filled with women, Yorick heads out on a mission to discover why the tragedy befell the world and to look for his girlfriend Beth, who he last heard was halfway across the world in Australia. She finds something endearing about the hapless Yorick and when they're together, there's the undeniable spark of two kids in love.

Finally, Marin Ireland has been cast as Nora, "the President's senior assistant and right hand". Michael Green (Logan) and Aïda Mashaka Croal (Turn) serve as Showrunners and Executive Producers.

Melina Matsoukas (Insecure, Master of None, Beyonce: Formation) will direct the pilot, which will be produced by FX Productions.

For pretty much as long as Y: The Last Man has existed, fans have been eagerly waiting for a film or television adaptation, and passing the time fan-casting their dream version. The series was published between 2002 and 2008, winning three Eisner awards and a Hugo Award in the process. He is repped by WME, Management 360, and Troika. Poots is with CAA and Troika. Canfield is repped by ICM Partners and Brookside Management. She is repped by ICM and Untitled Entertainment.
