    First the pope resigns, then Kyle Chandler gets cast in Showtime’s upcoming The Vatican—could this TV drama be more stacked for success?! Chandler, who has been one of the most sought-after actors this pilot season, will play Cardinal Thomas Duffy, “the charismatic yet enigmatic Archbishop of New York.” Showtime has described The Vatican as a “provocative contemporary genre thriller about spirituality, power and politics,” that explores the “relationship and rivalries as well as the mysteries” within the modern-day Catholic Church.
