Glen Beck, the uber-conservative radio talk show host, as it turns out, is the origin of all the hype heaped on the History Channel over their depiction of Satan in their mini-series "The Bible." It seems the show's producers made a casting decision to cast Moroccan actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni as Satan in their series, one, they say, who has played other "satanic roles" in the past.
So apparently Ouazanni is qualified to play the prince of darkness because he has creds.
This despite the fact that he in no way resembles "traditional" images of Satan.
But Glen Beck hit the nail on the head this time. This is the image of the actor that has been chosen to portray Satan in the History Channel's biblical mini-series.
And the hilarity comes from the producers' denials that they purposely picked this guy to portray Satan, calling comparisons of the image above to that of President Obama to be "utter nonsense." If an idiotic conservative radio commentator can see the resemblance, and I can also, they should have been able to see the resemblance and maybe picked another guy who perhaps didn't bear such a close resemblance to a sitting president.
Like this guy.
