President Obama Has A Twin: The History Channel’s The Bible Miniseries' Satan!

barack obama history channel twin

LOLZ. This is ridiculous!

Normally, one wouldn’t think twice about The History Channel’s The Bible miniseries casting actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni in the role of Satan. Except when the Prince of Darkness bears a slight resemblance to President Barack Obama

Of course Christian conservative, Glenn Beck couldn’t help but point this out to his Twitter followers via photo screenshot. However, the History Channel released the following statement:

“History channel has the highest respect for President Obama. The series was produced with an international and diverse cast of respected actors. It's unfortunate that anyone made this false connection. History's 'The Bible' is meant to enlighten people on its rich stories and deep history."

The show's producer, Mark Burnnett added:

“This is utter nonsense. The actor who played Satan, Mehdi Ouzaani, is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor. He has previously played parts in several Biblical epics — including Satanic characters long before Barack Obama was elected as our President.”

Meanwhile, his producing partner and wife Roma Downey also said:

"Both Mark and I have nothing but respect and love our President, who is a fellow Christian. False statements such as these are just designed as a foolish distraction to try and discredit the beauty of the story of The Bible.”

Sounds like one wacky coincidence to us, but we'd hate to be in Mohamen's shoes right about now!

Taylor Swift & Arnold Schwarzenegger To Star Alongside Katie Holmes In Kennedys Sequel?


Probably not!

ReelzChannel and Muse Entertainment are working on a sequel to The Kennedys, but pardon us if we aren't totes thrilled!!

You know we adore everything involving America's greatest family!

Heck, if they plastered President Kennedy and Jackie O's portraits on toilet paper, we'd start wiping with pine cones!

Neverthless, we aren't sure a return to Camelot is necessary!

The first miniseries was a friggin' flop!

Kevin Costner Lead Actor MiniSeries 2012 Emmys

Woo! Congrats Kevin Costner!

The oh-so-handsome actor just took home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Miniseries Or Movie for his role as Devil in Hatfields & McCoys!!!

The mini-series, which premiered just this past May, drew in millions of viewers week after week… and we can only assume Kevin’s one of the reasons why!

The multi-talented distinguished actor also produces the show, so this is a bit of a double-win for him!

This award makes Kevin’s very FIRST Emmy and we think he’s more than deserving of the honor!

Way to go, Kev!

Filed under: TV NewsFootball

swamp people ratings

Move over Jersey Shore, Swamp People is the new king of reality television — all thanks to one $3.5 million gamble during this year's Super Bowl!

Since a pricey 30-second Super Bowl spot aired in February, the History Channel's series about Louisiana families who hunt alligators for a living has increased its viewership by over 1.2 million!

Episodes were already attracting 4 million people, but as of last week, the series had more viewers than NCAA basketball games AND the MTV hit with 5.2 million!

Have U watched Swamp People since the Giants beat the Patriots? If so, did the Super Bowl ad help get your attention?
