Play of the Day: Obama, Satan or Bob Dylan in a Hood?

NBC

The uproar over an actor’s resemblance to Barack Obama made life easy for late-night comedians Monday night. The man, actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni, plays Satan in History Channel’s The Bible miniseries and Twitter was aghast at Ouazanni’s apparent resemblance to Obama. The Tonight Show, The Late Show and Late Night all made mention of the fact Monday, with Late Night host Jimmy Fallon remarking that Ouazanni looks more like Bob Dylan doing an Eminem impression.

The recent Republican party’s soul-searching was also a topic Monday, as David Letterman questioned the need to commission a report saying the party is too white, while Fallon was quick to compare it to March Madness. On ABC, Jimmy Kimmel covered former Alaska Governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s speech at CPAC over the weekend.

Fast forward to 3:00 to see Kimmel show why Palin was so popular at CPAC.
