Who is this Pope?

I ask the above question not in the philosophical sense...I ask it in a totally silly sense: if you had to assign an actor who best represents the current Pope, who would you choose and why? I'll give you some of the World Leader/Actor pairings my co-workers and I came up with recently to inspire you.

Pope John Paul II: Sean Connery
What Sean Connery brought to the 007 franchise, PJPII brought to the papacy. Both are the undisputed kings of their kind.

Dalai Lama: Jodie Foster
Both have been working at their respective crafts from a very young age, and both seem to ascribe to the "slow and steady wins the race" school of career management.

Bill Clinton: Robert Evans
If you haven't seen the movie The Kid Stays in the Picture, see it. It's all about the life of Robert Evans, B-movie actor turned head of Paramount pictures. He greenlit the Godfather movies, Love Story and Chinatown. His life was also filled with scandal and very public ups and downs.
