‘Bible’ producers scoff at Obama-Satan resemblance

NEW YORK – The producers of the cable TV miniseries on the Bible say Internet chatter that their Satan character resembles President Barack Obama is “utter nonsense.”

Mark Burnett and Roma Burnett said Monday that Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni, the Moroccan actor who played Satan in the History channel series, played Satanic characters in other Biblical programs long before Obama was elected president.

The connection got widespread attention after talk show host Glenn Beck last week tweeted about the uncanny resemblance.

Beck tweeted on Monday that his observation was intended to be “funny, nothing more.”
