    I’m... kind of okay with it?

    Just in what I’ve seen of his work, I really didn’t see him as Yorick at all. He could’ve proven me wrong, but...

    So it's not...quite at American Gods levels of setbacks yet, hopefully.

    Oh dear. Oh well.
    You know if they’re looking for a slightly dorky looking but very talented british actor getting a lot of Oscar buzz George McKay from 1917 is still just there

    So they lost the original showrunners and now the protagonist. Which means the pilot will be completely scrapped. Real smooth production. At least they still have the monkey.

    Oh well maybe it’s all for the best. Start with a clean slate. It’s always hard to walk into someone else’s production when the lead has already been cast etc

    Hmmm ok I’m not sure. I’m not sure I’m seeing Yorick there. But whatever this is getting to be like the flash with all the delays so maybe it’s better not to get too attached to anyone

    ‘Y: The Last Man’: Elliot Fletcher Joins FX’s Drama Series

    I was going to say that this seemed like a betrayal of the concept until I saw that this was a transgender man. Still seems to undercut the premise (I haven't read most of the comic, though), albeit in a very logical way and one that offers its own storytelling possibilities.

    Still rather nervous about this, considering all the behind the scenes upheaval, but that logo’s hot.

    It will be on Star in Europe - if I got it right, Star will be rolled out in February and contain the Hulu originals (as far as license agreement allows it)

    I don't want to be *that* guy, but shouldn't this thread be in the DC TV section?
