According to Variety, shock rocker Marilyn Manson will guest in “The New Pope”, HBO‘s follow-up to 2017 miniseries “The Young Pope”. Also appearing in Paolo Sorrentino‘s new installment is film star Sharon Stone.
Although no character details are available, the network released photos of both Manson and Stone on set.
“The Young Pope” starred Jude Law as the titular young leader of the Catholic Church, and he will be reprising his role as Pope Pius XIII. He is now joined by John Malkovich, who in early photos has appeared wearing similar papal vestments.
“The New Pope” is written by Sorrentino, Umberto Contarello and Stefano Bises. Sorrentino is directing all eight episodes. Returning castmembers from “The Young Pope” include Silvio Orlando, Javier Camara, Cecile de France, Ludivine Sagnier and Maurizio Lombardi. Henry Goodman, Ulrich Thomsen, Mark Ivanir and Massimo Ghini are joining the cast.
The production is a multinational collaboration between Sky, HBO and Canal+.
Manson has appeared in a handful of movies and TV shows before, including the American television drama series “Sons Of Anarchy”, the Showtime series “Californication” — where he played himself — and the Sundance Channel program “Wrong Cops”.
