Isaiah Mustafa fans, here’s an early birthday present: The Old Spice “man your man could smell like” scored a role in a Jennifer Aniston flick and a guest spot on NBC’s Chuck. And he’s earned it: Sales of Old Spice products are up 107% from a month ago. “It's a smaller role,” but he’s still excited, Mustafa tells the Hollywood Reporter of his role in Horrible Bosses. “I'm playing a cop because I play these authoritative characters well.”
As for his TV stint, it’s part of his new talent agreement with NBC, meaning one day—if Mustafa gets his wish—you may see him on Saturday Night Live. For now, he’ll play a “goofy” CIA guy on Chuck. But a bit of sad news: Though there are a few months left in his contract with Old Spice, Mustafa says no more commercials are lined up. Watch his commercials here and here, or click here to take a look at his impressive YouTube campaign.
