Jude Law on the Set of “The Young Pope”

Posted on January 13, 2016

Jude Law is spotted filming scenes for Paolo Sorrentino’s “The Young Pope” in Venice, Italy. Jude was sporting full papal robes to play the part of fictional Pope Pius XIII.

“The HBO eight-episode drama series ‘The Young Pope’ tells the controversial story of the beginning of Pius XIII’s Pontificate. Born Lenny Belardo, he is a complex and conflicted character, so conservative in his choices as to border on obscurantism, yet full of compassion towards the weak and poor. He is a man of great power who is stubbornly resistant to the Vatican courtiers, unconcerned with the implications to his authority. During the series, Belardo will face losing those closest to him and the constant fear of being abandoned, even by his God. He is, however, not afraid of undertaking the millennial mission of defending that same God and the world representing Him.”

 

Oh, so it’s sort of like The West Wing; a  fantasy version of the papacy where the main player is far more youthful, attractive and progressive than the actual person holding the office.

We guess so. If that’s the kind of thing you’re into.

But what do we know? Maybe it’ll be fantastic. They certainly don’t seem to be sparing any expense.

But boy, are these shots ever a boner-killer after the last set of Jude Law pics we featured.
