Old Spice Guy to Appear in Horrible Bosses and Chuck
Isaiah Mustafa’s (aka the Old Spice Guy) talent deal with NBC has already earned him a guest spot on the upcoming season of Chuck, Vulture reports. The once-struggling actor is also set to appear in Seth Gordon’s new comedy, Horrible Bosses, which stars Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell and Jason Bateman.
Mustafa’s Old Spice ads, which include two TV spots and a series of 87 videos for an online campaign, have reportedly increased sales for the company by a whopping 107 percent.
Definitive details on the actor’s new roles have yet to be confirmed, but, for now, he is reported to be playing a CIA officer on Chuck and a cop in Horrible Bosses. Mustafa tells The Hollywood Reporter: “I don’t know exactly who I’m in the scene with [in Horrible Bosses ]—maybe Jennifer Aniston!”
