Does Satan in The History Channel’s mini-series “The Bible” look like President Obama? Some viewers think so.

The Bible is a television mini-series, produced by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, which is based on the Bible. It began March 3, 2013, airing weekly in primetime on the channel History, culminating on March 31.

The first episode of the mini-series the cable channel History was seen by 13.1 million viewers, the largest cable television audience so far for 2013. The second installment continued “to deliver blockbuster ratings” for the network, attracting 10.8 million viewers. ‘The Bible’ is once again the #1 show on all of television Sunday night with 10.9 million total viewers. In addition, the The Bible mini-series garnered 4.2 million Adults 25-54 and 3.5 million Adults 18-49.

Now enter the controversy. Social media platforms like Twitter (over 20,000 tweets) and Facebook erupted when viewers noticed a similarity of actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni, who was cast as Satan, and U.S. President Barack Obama. The actor has been cast as Satan in other movies long before Barack Obama was president.

“HISTORY channel has the highest respect for President Obama. The Bible 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.”

– HISTORY the channel

The mini-series is a retelling of the stories from Genesis to Revelation and is produced by Mark Burnett, who also created Survivor and The Apprentice. He told CBS making The Bible was a “spiritual” calling, not a commercial one.

Of course YouTubers have taken to editing videos with their own productions …


Some side-by-side comparisons in an amateur YouTube production.

Executive Producers, Mark Burnett & Roma Downey has said: “This is utter nonsense. The actor who played Satan, Mehdi Ouazanni, 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.”

The Cardinal couldn’t find any movies in which Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni played Satan on the well-known movie website IMDB — Internet Movie Database. Here’s the IMDB listing or Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni …
