Now, we’re not saying anyone could reasonably confuse Saddam Hussein, the former dictator of Iraq, with Mel Gibson, Christ’s current go-to director. After all, one spends most of his time locked inside a prison cell, the other locked inside his own ego.
But are we the only ones to see the resemblance?
Mel, you could play Saddam. You could be Saddam. It’s your name, baby—and not just in lights but in those great big letters across the promo posters: “MEL GIBSON’S Saddam: The Miniseries.”
Think it over. It’s not every day a star is born again.
