Saddam Hussein’s Doppleganger Kidnapped for Porn Film

Saddam's dirty little secrets?

Seriously.

Mohamed Bishr, an Egyptian man who greatly resembles former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, was injured last Sunday when three armed men attempted to kidnap Bishr in order to force him to impersonate Hussein in a pornographic film. Reportedly, Bishr met with several men several weeks ago who offered him LE2 million pounds (US$333,000) to take the role of Saddam in an adult film. Bishr, a devout Muslim, refused and subsequently received various threatening phone calls.

According to Al Ahram, it is believed that the potential abductors wanted to force Bishr into a porno film in order to market the film as exclusive found footage. Poor Bishr has apparently moved four times and asked the Egyptian police for protection due to his unfortunate doppleganger.

From Al Ahram:

Former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein, executed in Baghdad in 2006, was rumoured to have used the services of several doubles to make public appearances in his place.

None are thought to have performed in adult films.

Phew. Thanks for clearing that up. A fake fake Saddam sex tape is too much to handle. Fortunately this was a botched attempt at a fake fake fake Saddam sex tape (right?) I can deal with that.
