Saddam Hussein Look-a-Like Says He Was Kidnapped To Make Adult Film

An Egyptian man alleges a gang tried to kidnap him and force him to film pornographic videos because of his resemblance to despot Saddam Hussein.
Mohamed Bishr said he was going to a cafe in Alexandria, Egypt, when three men dressed in black tried to force him into a van, al-Ahram reported.
"The three men, who had guns hanging from their belts, forced me out of my car and shoved me into a van, hitting my head," Bishr told al-Ahram.
Bishr's son, Mahmoud Bishr, said his father had met with a group of unidentified people and was offered $333,000 to impersonate the late dictator in a pornographic movie, which Bishr declined. The son said his father then received several phone calls in which he was threatened with kidnapping if he didn't portray the dead Iraqi strongman in the sex tape.

One of the unexpected hazards of looking like Saddam Hussein, it seems, is that you might have an Iraqi gang try to kidnap you and force you to make a hardcore porn film they can peddle as starring the late dictator.
That’s what one unfortunate doppelganger of the dead dictator, Mohamed Bishr, says happened to him last weekend in Alexandria, Egypt.
Bishr said the thugs initially offered him $333,000 to have sex in front of the cameras, hoping to pass the film off as Hussein erotica and sell it for big bucks.
When he declined, he said, the gun-wielding goons tried to violently kidnap him. Ultimately, it appears, he escaped.
