The Young Pope
The Young Pope stars Jude Law as Pius XIII, the first American pope in the Vatican

In the second episode of The Young Pope starring Jude Law, we see Lenny prepare for his first appearance in public as pope.

He might have been born Lenny Belardo, but now he is Pope Pius XIII and thousands of faithful followers are keen to see him in the flesh.

Lenny has a meeting with Cardinal Spencer before his scheduled appearance in St. Peter’s Square, but reunions are always tricky and this is no exception.
