Old Spice pitchman Isaiah Mustafa has signed a talent deal with NBC. The network hopes to add him to one of their current or new series. Mustafa previously appeared on the small screen in bit parts on NCIS, Ugly Betty and Castle, before he landed the Old Spice ads.
Isaiah Mustafa: "What's funny is no one knew me as being funny before. Because the only things I had done were these episodics and procedurals where I was kind of this tough guy, prison guard, cop, or FBI guy. So now, people are like, 'Oh, he's funny.' That commercial ... really helped me to climb that ladder of success."
