5 Things You Don’t Know About The Old Spice Guy

Published

on

The man who plays the “man your man could smell like” in the Old Spice commercials is also People Magazine’s Most Beautiful Person of 2010, actor Isaiah Mustafa. This 44-year-old’s outgoing personality and his desire to make people laugh made him a perfect Old Spice spokesperson in this funny campaign, but there’s more to Mustafa than meets the eye.

Mustafa The Actor

Born in Oregon and raised in California, Mustafa started his acting career in 2002 and landed his first role as an injured football player in the movie The Island. He went on to act in various movies, short films, TV shows and commercials. As you can see, Mustafa is creatively well-rounded. He says he loves acting and performing and he “writes every day.” He even tried his hand behind the camera by writing, directing, and starring in his own film named Cosplaya, which highlights his great love for comic books.

The NFL Football Player

While Mustafa attended Arizona State University, he received a scholarship and played college football as a starting wide receiver until his senior year. After he graduated, he tried out for the NFL and made it. For three years he was on practice squads for four different pro football teams: Tennessee Oilers, Oakland Raiders, Cleveland Browns and Seattle Seahawks. He never did make to the playing field, but he was on the teams nonetheless and hung up his helmet in 2000 to pursue other dreams.

An Old Spice Dad

Although Mustafa himself came from a large family of one brother and five sisters, he only has one daughter, named Haley. He admits that it’s tough to raise a daughter and he has high hopes for her future. “I hope that my daughter grows up empowered and doesn’t define herself by the way she looks, but by qualities that make her an intelligent, strong and responsible woman.” That’s a beautiful sentiment, and something we all hope for our daughters.

A Teacher Turned NFL Star

Mustafa didn’t plan to play professional football or act for a living when he started college. Instead, he spent his time studying history and taking classes to become a teacher. His plan was to teach history to high school students, but that all changed when his friend talked him into trying out for the NFL and he found his love for acting.

Game Show Winner

Remember the show The Weakest Link with hard-nosed British host Anne Robinson? The game involved nine players working together to win a pot of money, voting off the weakest link in the answer chain. Mustafa was not only on the show, but he won $47,000 playing and used that money to pursue his acting career. Looks like it paid off! Now he’s not only a successful actor, but he smells nice, too.
