Coming Soon to HBO: Benjamin Walker As a Hot Missionary

HBO is known for making cutting-edge TV like Game of Thrones, but they haven’t gotten into the religion realm since cancelling Big Love in 2010. Now, they’ve announced production on a new series called The Missionary, which is about (get this) a missionary. Benjamin Walker, star of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and husband of Mamie Gummer, will play the title role, “an American missionary who gets caught up in Cold War intrigue while helping a young woman escape East Berlin.”

There’s nothing in the press release about sex scenes or nudity, but this is HBO we’re dealing with, so let’s hope for the best.
