Get a First Look at Jude Law as 'The Young Pope'

Looking papal, Jude Law!

The actor was in Venice, Italy, on Tuesday, draped head to toe in pope attire -- crucifix and all. This is apparently something you can do, even if you're not Pope Francis himself.

The 43-year-old star has on the holy digs to film the upcoming HBO series, The Young Pope. Law plays the fictional Pope Pius XIII in the show. Actually, the English actor portrays the first American pope on the program, which just goes to show that an American can't seem to be the pope, even if it's pretend, and on a show about an American being the pope. Drat.

UNSPECIFIED - UNDATED: Actor Jude Law sits aboard a boat on the set of the film 'The Gentleman's Wager' at sea. Johnnie Walker Blue Label has launched a partnership with Jude Law and 'The Gentleman's Wager' film. Directed by Jake Scott and also starring Italian actor Giancarlo Giannini, the film tells the story of a wager between two men striving for personal progress through the quest for a truly rare experience. The film was shot in the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean and London respectively and sees Law in the role of a man who, despite having it all, uses a wager as an excuse to challenge himself and strive for something he wants, but can't buy.
