Diane Lane Joins Cast of in FX's Y

YORICK, HERO, AGENT 355, More Cast in FX's Y: THE LAST MAN

It looks like they're investing heavily in the project, as Keoghan is joined Imogen Poots (28 Weeks Later) and the Oscar-nominated Diane Lane (Batman vs Superman, Justice League).

FX announced Wednesday that she'll play Senator Jennifer Brown in the highly anticipated adaptation of the acclaimed comic series Y: The Last Man.

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. Keoghan is on the verge of becoming a breakout star, but he's a surprising choice for Yorick with his two biggest roles to date being humble George from Dunkirk and the super creepy Martin in The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Both roles earned him a spot on Variety's "10 Actors to Watch" for 2017. Keoghan is repped by WME, Management 360 and Troika UK.

United States trade war fears weigh on markets as South Korea sounds alarm
The Office of the US Trade Representative proposed 10 per cent tariffs Tuesday on a list of 6031 Chinese product lines. China "cannot match fresh US tariffs", Vishnu Varathan of Mizuho Bank said in a report.

Rounding out the cast outside the Brown family, Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel) will play Agent 355, a Secret Service agent who takes on Yorick's protection. She is a tough and confident EMT who nurses a deep emotional trauma that often leads her to cross personal and professional lines. Her television credits include Showtime's "Roadies", BBC's "Miss Austen Regrets", and BBC's "Christopher and His Kind". Poots is with CAA and Troika. A Junior Senator in her first term, Senator Brown has already made a name for herself in political circles for her willingness to put personal ideals above politics. Like Hero, she's got a really interesting trajectory in the comics and one that doesn't go where you'd expect. She is repped by UTA. She is repped by ICM, Alan Siegel Entertainment, and BWH Agency.

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.
