Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni actually plays the role of Satan in "The Bible" (a History channel miniseries) but the actor's uncanny similarity to President Barrack Obama caught the eye of viewers and netizens alike- especially portraying a not so flattering character to say the least.  A number of Twitter users noticed this among which are noted Obama "fans" like Glenn Beck who posted a screenshot of Ouazanni and asked if others thought he looked like "That Guy,"- Beck's preferred term for Obama.

Ouazanni  as Satan in "The Bible" on the left; Obama, right.
Ouazzani has starred in multiple faith-based films, including "The Ten Commandments," "The Satanic Angels," "Jeremiah" and "David."

The History channel and executive producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey issued a statement on what unexpectedly turned out to be "news reports" picking up on the similarity between the actor and Obama which reads:
“History channel has the highest respect for President Obama.....It's unfortunate that anyone made this false connection.....This is utter nonsense," Burnett said. "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.”
