An Afghanistani and Mel Gibson…sounds like the Maccabees



Mel Gibson, the infamous Jew-loving actor/director/producer auditioned Azita Ghanizada for a role in his upcoming movie about Jewish hero Judah Maccabee.  Or he just wants to date her since the meeting took place over dinner and photos on TMZ include Gibson moving in for the kiss. 

Ghanizada, born in Afghanistan, met Gibson a few weeks ago and he was “taken aback by her beauty and unique ethnicity” so asked her out to dinner to discuss possibly working together. TMZ sources say Ghanizada was “hip to the idea” not no official deal has been made as of yet.

An Afghani and Mel Gibson starring in a movie about Jewish heroes.  So evidently it’s going to be science-fiction!
