Great Moments In Miscasting
I saw a billboard on Sunset and La Brea advertising "Val Kilmer As Moses!" Hello? Moses was a swarthy Jew. What's next, "Dick Van Patten As Arafat!"?

Kilmer probably got the Moses role because of his experience playing Jim Morrison. In the scene on the parting of the Red Sea, he belts out a version of "Break on Through to the Other Side."
