Jude Law, aged 44, is pop culture’s official “Young.” Variety reports that the Young Pope star will play the young Dumbledore in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, across from Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander and Johnny Depp’s Grindelwald, with whom he better share some homoerotic tension. The sequel to the first film, which took place in 1920s New York, will carry the cast of characters around the globe as Europe heads into World War II. Accio franchise checks!
