Hello, ladies. Look at this man, now back to me, now back to him. Sadly, I’m not him. His name is Isaiah Mustafa, more commonly known as the Old Spice Guy. Before he became famous for shilling deodorant in amusing and creative ways, Mustafa was an NFL practice squad wide receiver and owned a restaurant called Jo Jo’s Barbecue. Mustafa transitioned into film and television with an uncredited role in Michael Bay’s film The Island, and has also appeared in small roles in films such as Horrible Bosses, Madea’s Big Happy Family, and the upcoming The Three Stooges. He’s also played roles on the TV series Ugly Betty and Castle. With his awesome voice, smooth-talking demeanor, and ability to peddle Old Spice like a boss, I predict foresee big things in Mustafa’s future. He’s the man your man could smell like, and he turns 38 today.
