Scarlett Johansson sure knows how to bring on the sex appeal, even while reading the Bible.
Johansson was just one of several stars enlisted by Saturday Night Live writer and performer Mike O'Brian to lend her sexy voice for a reading of the Old Testament for his new comedy album, Tasty Radio, according to Rolling Stone magazine.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron star, 30, brought her sexy on for a track entitled Sexy Bible, which features Johansson vocalizing some passages from the Book of Deuteronomy for the fictional WSEX, Sexy Talk Radio.
“If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son…his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town,” reads Johansson in a breathy, sexy tone.
O’Brien said he has been wanting to satirize the Old Testament for quite some time, but knew his vocalization just wouldn't cut it. Hence, the enlistment of sexy Scarlett Johansson.
“I wasn’t sure what the comedic take would be when I first became obsessed with Deuteronomy, but I knew a female should be delivering most of it because a lot of the quotes are very misogynistic and who wants to hear a guy make fun of that,” he told the magazine. “I was so thrilled that Scarlett said she’d do it.”
