    Jew Score:



    May 26, 1946 —

    Hide the woman and children. The man pictured on the left is Jewish.

    Say what?

    OK, so Saddam Hussein is not Jewish. But the man pictured is not Saddam. It's Jerry Haleva, the actor who portrays Hussein in movies, and he is in fact a Jew. Just look at his complete filmography:

  • Hot Shots! (1991) .... Saddam Hussein
  • Hot Shots! Part Deux (1993) .... Saddam Hussein
  • The Big Lebowski (1998) .... Saddam Hussein
  • Jane Austen's Mafia! (1998) .... Saddam Hussein
  • The First $20 Million Is Always the Hardest (2002) .... Hologram Saddam
  • Live from Baghdad (2002) .... Saddam Hussein

    Talk about typecasting. We do wonder about a couple of things: how does someone who considers himself a Jewish activist reconcile playing Hussein, and how much of a stretch was it to play Hologram Saddam?

    What's next, we'll find out that Bobby Watson is Jewish? Feel free to look him up.

  • Verdict: Jew.
