New Pope, The: Sorrentino New TV Series, Starring Marilyn Manson and Sharon Stone

HBO has released photos of provocative rocker Marilyn Manson and Oscar-nominated actress Sharon Stone appearing in The New Pope, Oscar winner Paolo (The Great Beauty) Sorrentino’s follow-up to his previous series, The Young Pope.

Both Manson and Stone are known to have been big fans of both “The Young Pope” and director Sorrentino. No details of their roles are being divulged. The photo of Manson suggests that the rocker will be playing a character not too different from his regular public persona. Both he and Stone are working with Sorrentino for the first time.

The official images come after HBO in January released a first-look image of John Malkovich and Jude Law, who played the pope in the previous series, both wearing papal vestments.
