Ben Schnetzer is the New Star of FX’s Y: The Last Man Adaptation

Earlier this month, FX’s long gestating adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s acclaimed comic book series, Y: The Last Man, took a hit when Barry Keoghan left the project after two years. However, FX has already lined someone new to step into the role of escape artist Yorick Brown. Via Variety, Ben Schnetzer will portray Yorick on the series.

Schnetzer is perhaps best known for his roles in The Book Thief, Snowden, The Riot Club, and Pride. He also starred in the ABC series, Happy Town, as well as FX’s pilot for Gone Hollywood.

Within the original comic, Yorick and his helper monkey, Ampersand, were the lone male mammals to survive an apocalyptic plague. As women inherit the Earth, the secret of Yorick’s survival may give humanity a second chance for survival.

Diane Lane costars in the series as Senator Jennifer Brown, Yorick’s mother. Imogen Poots will portray Hero, Yorick’s sister, while No Time To Die‘s Lashana Lynch plays Agent 355; the woman assigned to protect Yorick. Additionally, Juliana Canfield, Marin Ireland, and Amber Tamblyn have roles in the series.

Eliza Clark is the showrunner for Y: The Last Man, which will be executive produced by Melina Matsoukas. FX has also signed Matsoukas to direct the pilot episode, but the network has yet to set a date for the series.
