The first positive development for the movie version of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's Y: The Last Man since the project's announcement has come, in the form of Shia LeBeouf declaring that he won't be playing Yorick after all.
LeBeouf, who's been linked to the role ever since director D.J. Caruso became involved in the project, told Wizard magazine that he couldn't see himself playing the titular last man alive on Earth because of similarities to his Transformers character, Sam Whitwicky:
You take Sam and you put a monkey on his shoulder... I don't know if it's that big a differential. It seems like he's the ordinary guy in an extraordinary situation again... I'm not willing to make that movie currently, and may be too old to play the role by the time it does come around.
While I have nothing really bad against Shia, he never seemed right for the character to me. But who could step into Yorick Brown's shoes convincingly? Start your casting speculation now.
