Thaao Penghlis (ex-Tony/Andre, Days of Our Lives) will be playing the role of epic villain "Haman" in an upcoming film about Queen Esther, slated to begin filming next month. Thaao will be sporting a different look for the role, complete with long beard and hair. "This will be one of the best roles I've done since Andre," he stated. "This is one of my favorite times of history; and I often feel more in character working in costume."
