In HBO's absorbing new drama "The Young Pope," Jude Law plays the title character, American-born Lenny Belardo."The Young Pope" was created, directed and written by Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino – whose 2013 film "The Great Beauty" won the Oscar for best foreign language film.SORRENTINO: The idea for "The Young Pope" really stems from my high school years with Catholic priests as teachers.SORRENTINO: The most challenging part of making a film is the writing.With a fully realized script in hand, Sorrentino and his actors could tackle "The Young Pope" more like a single 10-hour movie than 10 separate episodes. LAW: I underestimated how hard-wired I was to playing a part for a two-hour period. SORRENTINO: I'm always very interested in an actor's way of walking.In the hands of Paolo, I knew that he wasn't just going to get it.Odds are, Law and Sorrentino aren't done with their collaboration.SORRENTINO: I would love to do a second season.
