HBO confirmed Friday that Sharon Stone and Marilyn Manson will guest star on the forthcoming series The New Pope.
They join Jude Law who starred in the first installment as the leader of the Catholic Church and is set to reprise his role, as well as the previously announced John Malkovich.
While no further details have been divulged by the premium cabler, the previously released first-look images of Malkovich and Law, feature them both in similar papal vestments so it’s fair to assume that the sequel will feature two popes, much like the recent real-life situation that resulted in there being two living popes for the first time in centuries. From Manson’s first-image it seems that the provocative persona will portray a character very similar to his real-life self.
Other returning cast members include Cecile de France, Ludivine Sagnier, and Silvio Orlando.
