A couple of noteworthy casting announcements have dropped for both FX's adaptation of Y: The Last Man and the live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp. Let's go ahead and dive right in. 

First up, Deadline reports that Timothy Hutton (American Crime) will be joining the cast of FX's adaptation of Y: The Last Man — titled simply Y. The Oscar-winning actor will play the U.S. president, though the report indicates he's only signed on for the pilot. Considering Pia Guerra’s acclaimed DC/Vertigo comic book is about life after a plague that wipes out all but one male on Earth, Hutton might not be sticking around for the long haul.

Amber Tamblyn (House) has already signed on to play the president's daughter, Marriette Callows. They will be joined by Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk), who plays titular last man Yorick, along with Diane Lane (Justice League), Imogen Poots (Green Room), and Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel).

Though Y has been in development since 2016, there's no word on when we can expect the series to hit the small screen.

Meanwhile, in Disney news, Kiersey Clemons will be a part of the live-action retelling of Lady and the Tramp, according to Variety. Clemons, who had a breakout role in this summer's musical dramedy Heart Beats Loud, will play Darling, the human owner of Lady. 

She'll be one of the few actors to actually appear on screen, as most of the talent will be voicing their CG characters, much like The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast. So far, we know Justin Theroux (The Leftoverswill voice the Tramp and Ashely Jensen (DuckTales) will voice Jackie, the Scottish Terrier. 

The film is currently being eyed for an exclusive release on Disney's upcoming streaming service, which is expected to launch sometime next year.
