The History Channel miniseries "The Bible" has been a hit in the ratings, but it's also grabbing attention because of the actor playing Satan -- and the public figure some viewers think he resembles.
After actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni's first appearance as Satan in "The Bible" aired on Sunday, a number of viewers took to Twitter to say that he bears a resemblance to President Barack Obama.
One person who took notice was conservative commentator Glenn Beck, who tweeted on Thursday, "The bible on the history channel Sunday. Best episode yet. Don't miss it. Does satan look EXACTLY like Obama? Y e s!"
Best episode yet this Sunday. One of the most important shows in decades #TheBible http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/03/06/mark-burnett-bible-set/
Ouazanni has appeared in several other biblically-themed productions, including the TV movies "The Ten Commandments," "In the Beginning" and "David."

Of course it looks like Obama...the object of any film production is to make it seem as REAL as possible. Sheesh.
This headline makes my head hurt
CBS News asks: “The Bible”: Does Satan look like Obama in History Channel miniseries?
SeeBS News axes the Bible, “Does Satan look like Obama” in the History Channel miniseries?
There, I fixed it.
To the choir boys?
Well, of course they resemble one another! Is Obama worried about being typecast?
Looks like a cross between an older Obama and the Emperor Palpatine.
What I noticed weeks ago when I looked up the cast was the character of Satan was the only one played by someone with an Arab name.
If Satan had a son....
Nah. Couldn't be. ;-)
Well, ask yourself another question... why have we never seen the two of them in the same room together?
No, Obama is Satan.
...[Executive Producer Mark] Burnett answered: Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni is a great Moroccan actor. Probably half the cast are Moroccan because were in Morocco, just in terms of budgeting, to fly people in from other countries is expensive...
Kudos to the casting director.
RE: No, Obama is Satan.
Is there a difference between the phrase:
“Obama is Satan” and “Satan is Obama” ? HEH HEH
No-both one in the same.
What would make CBS News think such a thing? And how would they know what Satan looks like?
The resemblance comes mostly from the scary and hateful looking eyes.
IMO, the actor’s face shows a strength and maturity that is missing in the face it’s being compared to.
