‘The Bible' Cast an Actor to Play ‘Satan' Who Looks Like Obama

The Twitterverse went crazy on Sunday night during an episode of the History Channel's hit series The Bible. What caused the frenzy? Well, apparently viewers noticed that the devil in the show, played by actor Mehdi Ouzaani, had a striking resemblance to President Barack Obama.

As noted by The Daily Mail, radio host Glenn Beck, a staunch conservative, started the conversation when he tweeted, "Anyone else think the Devil in #TheBible Sunday on History Channel looks exactly like That Guy?"

A slew of other similar tweets ensued:

Leah Christie (@LeahMChristie) tweeted "Oh my word...watching The History Channel's The Bible..does Satan look familiar to anyone else?"

Matthew Gaudet (@mgaudet111) commented, "Watching The Bible series on the History channel and noticed the guy playing the role of satan, looks strikingly similar to Obama...#KREEPY," and Brenna Miller (@BrennaMiller1) wrote, "Just caught 5 minutes of #TheBible on History Channel...Satan looks like Obama-say what!?"

The series, which regularly gets a surprising 13.1 million viewers, retells bible stories from Genesis through Revelation in a scripted format and currently airs on the History Channel in two-hour chunks on Sunday night.

Should he have been denied a role (job) because of his slight resemblance to Obama?

eh, not really that much.   But even if they did, is it wrong?

If it is, where is the thread on GWB's head being on a pike in an episode of Game of Thrones?

 I wonder how long the movie would have been had they only done the factual historical events in the bible?
