The actor cast as the Prince of Darkness bears a striking resemblance to the sitting president, which has drawn a multitude of reactions.

Coincidence, or not-so-subtle political commentary?

A major hit already, History Channel's 10-part miniseries The Bible is stirring up extra attention for its casting. The role of Satan, i.e. the bad guy, is played by the actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni, who, thanks to makeup and other production tricks, bears a startling resemblance to President Barack Obama.
