Irish actor Barry Keoghan has landed the leading role in an upcoming pilot from cable channel FX based on the acclaimed comic book series Y: The Last Man.

Based on Vaughan and Guerra's comics, which detailed an apocalyptic contagion that decimated all of the male mammalians across the planet save one, Y: The Last Man is beginning to sound like a pretty faithful adapation - at least in terms of the cast's characters descriptions. She is a tough and confident EMT who nurses a deep emotional trauma that often leads her to cross personal and professional lines. He is repped by WME, Management 360, and Troika.

Lane will play Jennifer Brown, 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. More importantly, Jennifer Brown is the mother of both Yorick and Hero Brown. She is repped by CAA and Troika.

Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel) as Agent 355 (pronounced three-fifty-five), a secret agent of a mysterious government organization called the Culper Ring and Yorick's assigned bodyguard. Juliana Canfield (HBO's Succession) will portray Yorick's girlfriend Beth, who, in the comics, is speaking on the phone with him from across the world at the moment the plague hits. She finds something endearing about the hapless Yorick and when they're together, there's the undeniable spark of two kids in love.

Instead, he relied on screenshots and shared them with the analysts, who say they believe he was still unable to find a buyer. Routers are also prized targets because they allow access to web activity, passwords and, potentially, top secret documents.

Finally Marin Ireland will play Nora, the President's aide. "She effortlessly balances family life with a job navigating the corridors of power". She is repped by ICM and Untitled Entertainment.

Michael Green, who recently left the Starz series American Gods, will serve as showrunner, along with Aida Mashaka Croal of Luke Cage and Turn.

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