If a Pope Were This Pretty, All the World Might Have a Spontaneous Crisis of Faith

Please pardon my sacrilegiousness, but I may have a crush on The Young Pope. Luckily, he’s merely fictional but, oh, my goodness, can you imagine if a real pope looked like Jude Law? Moving right along, this period drama coming to Sky Atlantic and HBO looks phenomenal: starring Law as the unscrupulous Pope Pius XIII, director Paolo Sorrentino’s dark vision of a fictional leader ready to “ignite a revolution.” With Diane Keaton on board as Sister Mary, the nun who raised him (as Lenny Belardo), and James Cromwell’s Cardinal Spencer, Belardo’s mentor, we are all ears (well, maybe all eyes).

Watch the teaser, and I defy you to resist this magnetic Young Pope‘s power.
