Papal Voight and ElwesJon Voight isn't the scariest choice to play the Pope in the upcoming CBS miniseries John Paul II. Christopher Walken would have been even spookier. However, Voight is surely in the top five. He's replacing Ian Holm, who left the production for "personal reasons." Voight has played coaches, politicians, gigolos, military men ... even Howard Cosell and FDR, but I believe this is his first priestly role. Weirder still: Cary Elwes, perhaps best known as Westley in The Princess Bride, will play the young Karol Wojtyla in his pre-Pope days. [Via Out of Focus]
