A thrilling new show to get hooked on...

In the run-up to the debut of Y: The Last Man on Disney+, JOE had the opportunity to chat with lead star, Ben Schnetzer.

The American actor, who's also appeared in Pride, Warcraft and Entebbe, plays the titular Y - short for Yorick - who finds himself the last human male alive on the planet following a mysterious outbreak.

Opening up about the new show and his role, Schnetzer also spoke about the obvious legend that is Diane Lane (who plays his mother/the President of America) and the difficulties of making a massive-scale show about a pandemic... in the middle of an actual pandemic.

Schnetzer actually replaced Ireland's own Barry Keoghan in the lead role, who himself sort of replaced Shia LaBeouf, who was originally intended to play the role as far back as 2007. It is no big secret that actors occasionally get replaced in roles in movies that they have already been hired to work on.

Y: The Last Man will kick off on Disney+ on Wednesday, 22 September, with episodes airing each subsequent Wednesday after that.
