History channel’s mini series ‘The Bible’ was a smash-hit attracting more than 11 million viewers just in US. The TV show got so popular that it was soon decided to make a big screen version of it. However, it was later revealed that some crucial characters such as Satan would end up on the cutting-room floor.
The reason for that were photographs of the actor portraying Satan in the show which went viral. Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni is a veteran Moroccan actor who pranksters quickly likened to President Barack Obama. The alleged resemblance between the two men soon turned into an accusation against the makers of ‘The Bible’ who insisted that the connection was completely false. Yet, the character of Satan was excluded from the ‘Son of God’, the big screen version which is about to be released in days. The producers are hoping to reach and even surpass the success of ‘The Bible’.
