Basketball hall of famer and self-appointed foreign relations consultant Dennis Rodman is bringing his message of peace to Vatican City.
CNN confirms the former NBA bad-boy is in Rome.
Rodman recently returned from a trip to North Korea where he became friends with leader Kim Jong Un.
He told TMZ he's trying to arrange a sit-down meeting with the next pope.
And Rodman won't be making a quite entrance. He is expected to be riding in a makeshift Popemobile and launch a campaign for Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana, to be the first black pope.
