New York - "It's the ultimate devil's advocate scenario," a Hystery Channel studio source said today commenting on the casting of a US Attorney General doppelganger to play Pontius Pilate in future episodes of The Bible.

Outtakes of Beyonce auditioning for the part of St Mary Magdalene are thought to be 'beyond the pale'.
