Peter O'Toole Gets Religion on The Tudors

From Lawrence of Arabia to Caligula to Troy, Peter O'Toole has a knack for playing historical figures to the hilt. Now, the eight-time Oscar nominee is robing up as Pope Paul III on The Tudors (Sundays at 9 pm/ET, Showtime) and he's ready to confess. TV Guide: What made you decide to take this role?Peter O'Toole: It is beautifully written with some stunning scenes and some terrifying ones.
