Isaiah Mustafa, Old Spice Guy, gets TV deal
It was a struggle at first for Mustafa as he left football to pursue a career in acting. He eventually landed small spots on Ugly Betty and Castle.
When the Old Spice commercial aired during the Superbowl, Mustafa found himself on the plush sofas of the Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres Show. Mustafa says he's still pushing hard to make a name for himself. He enjoys comedy and NBC loves his funny charm.
Mustafa has gone viral, with his Old Spice commercial spread over the internet. A star is born when you find parodies on YouTube. Ellen can't get enough of him, and the WalletPop newsroom couldn't help but replay the Old Spice commercial and chuckle. Our friends at Popeater voted Mustafa as the most popular Old Spice pitchman of all time.
