A President Obama-lookalike actor who played the devil in the miniseries ‘The Bible’ has been edited out of an upcoming film based on the show after the uncanny resemblance sparked intense controversy.
When the 10-hour hit miniseries aired on the History Channel a year ago, bloggers immediately noted the similarities between Satan, played by Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni, and the President and side-by-side comparisons of the two went viral online.
Eager to avoid rehashing the drama, producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett decided to leave the character out of their film, called ‘Son of God,’ which opens on February 28.
‘It gives me great pleasure to tell you that the devil is on the cutting-room floor,’ Downey told The Hollywood Reporter Monday.
‘This is now a movie about Jesus, the son of God, and the devil gets no more screen time.’
The 20th Century Fox film is basically a reshaped version of The Bible. But the miniseries needed to be trimmed from 10-hours to two hours.Downey said they went out of their way to leave the controversial Satan out of the film.
After the Obama lookalike comments caused a firestorm on the Internet, Burnett, Downey and History each issued statements supporting the president and insisted they never intended to link Obama and Satan.
‘Someone made a comment that the actor who played the devil vaguely resembled our president, and suddenly the media went nuts,’ Downey told The Hollywood Reporter.
‘The next day, when I was sure everyone would only be talking about Jesus, they were talking about Satan instead.’
And NO, this is not the “Go Horns” sign!
And please don’t tell me that of all people Obama, Cheney, the Bush’s, the Clinton’s, Pope Benedict, Sarkozy etc. are flashing the sign for ‘LOVE’ in sign language, because they don’t.
Horned Hand or The Mano Cornuto: this gesture is the Satanic salute, a sign of recognition between and allegiance of members of Satanism or other unholy groups.
