Two very familiar faces are set to make an appearance on The New Pope.
The forthcoming sequel to The Young Pope has tapped Sharon Stone and Marilyn Manson to guest star.
The news was announced Friday by HBO via its official social media channels.
The upcoming Paolo Sorrentino-helmed series is a sequel to 2016 series starring Jude Law as the leader of the Catholic Church. While not much is known about the plot or the characters, from the first-look images released by the premium cabler, it seems that Manson will portray a character similar to public persona.
Back in January, HBO released a first-look image of John Malkovich and Law, both in similar papal vestments so it’s fair to assume that the series 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.
Other returning cast members include Cecile de France, Ludivine Sagnier, and Silvio Orlando.
While principal filming is finished, a premiere date has yet to be scheduled.
