Television is fast becoming the realm of choice for today’s best acting talent, and accomplished thespian Jude Law has now stepped into the arena for Sky Atlantic and HBO’s edgy new miniseries The Young Pope.
Law stars as Lenny Belardo who is elected by the College of Cardinals and ordained as Pope Pius XIII. But this blue-collar kid has other ideas when it comes to the papacy, and with a growing list of personal vices, Lenny is sure to break plenty of the Catholic Church’s most pious beliefs.
Check out the new trailer below:
The Young Pope will be released later this year.
