According to "The Hollywood Reporter", Showtime's historical saga "The Borgias", which is to replace the worldwide popular "The Tudors" next year, has just got a new cast member. Young actor Francois Arnaud will play the role of Cesare, the ambitious and violent son of Rodrigo Borgia (played by Jeremy Irons who will lead the whole cast). "The Borgias" is planned as a Renaissance era crime family drama, following the decadent, dangerous, sexy, naughty and unscrupulous papal family. I am anxiously waiting to see which actress will get the most interesting role of Lucretia Borgia, the daughter of the family. As we mentioned before Neil Jordan will direct the pilot to be followed by thirteen pre-ordered episodes.
