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.
