'The New Pope': John Malkovich to Star Alongside Jude Law in HBO Follow-Up
More than a year after formally announcing its follow-up to The Young Pope, HBO and producers Sky are getting the ball rolling on casting. Two-time Oscar nominee John Malkovich is set to star, with season one lead Jude Law returning for The New Pope. Law starred in The Young Pope as the fictional first American pope, an outrageously conservative figurehead who seems hell-bent on turning the world of the Vatican upside down. The cast of the 10-part series also included Diane Keaton, Silvio Orlando and James Cromwell.
