The first trailer for the 10-part series, airing in the U.S. on HBO, has been released. Here is the synopsis: “Lenny Belardo is no ordinary Pope. He is the youngest and first American Pope in history. We find him on the morning of his first day in office, preparing to enter into the power struggles inside the closed, secretive Vatican state.”

Jude revealed last week on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert that he turned down the role of Superman because of the spandex costume.
“I’m an Englishman and, I don’t know, it just didn’t seem to fit,” Jude said. “I was always worried about the outfit. I just didn’t fancy it.”
“I take the suit into the bathroom and I’m putting it on and I look around and I look in the mirror and suddenly I’m Superman and the music kind of comes in,” he continued. “Then I have this picture of me in that costume in posters all over the world and I was like, ‘No way!’ And I unzipped it. But I was Superman for two minutes, that was enough.”
