To this I say, YES YES HOLY SHIT YES PLEASE PLEASE LET SHIA HAVE THIS ROLE OH GOD.
For one thing, I've wanted a movie adaptation of Y The Last Man since I first read it. Even though they'll probably fuck it up. For another thing, SHIA LE-FUCKING-BEOUF. If they make this movie now, and anyone OTHER than Shia plays Yorick, I will be nothing but depressed.
