    There is no record of them (Roma Downey and her husband, Mark Burnett) donating to any presidential campaign in 2012.

    They both came out with statements denouncing the comparison.

    Ms. Downey even went so far as to say she loved the President and reminded people that he is a Christian.

    The biggest problem I have with this miniseries is that Jesus is once again portrayed by a blonde, blue-eyed, white male. And he's English, no less. He is about as far away from looking Jewish than the guy playing the Devil.

    •  I don't doubt Downy/Burnett are being honest (1+ / 0-)

      From all I understand, producers are often the money behind movies and don't have much creative license. They may have even signed off on decisions like casting.

      Either way, it's had for me to believe they didn't see the stark resemblance.

      And why was devil cast as a black man, much less one that looks like Obama?
