We then followed up more recently with an on-set shot of Colin Farrell, looking genuinely horrendous with a comb-over.
Now, Hollywood Reporter have announced that one Isaiah Mustafa has joined the cast as well. “Who he?” I hear you say, well he used to play American Football in the NFL, he has been cast by Tyler Perry in next year’s “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf” and he has managed to boost Old Spice’s product sales by 107% in one month with a series of Emmy-nominated TV spots.
Mustafa has been cast as a cop, in what he has described as “a small role”, which he says suits him as he feels he is good at playing “authoritative” characters. Click on the Hollywood Reporter link above to see the full interview he gave them. The cast for this film seems more impressive with each successive announcement and although it remains to be seen whether Mustafa has any acting clout, any film listed on IMDb with a character named “Motherf***er Jones” has got to be worth a look, surely.
For those of you who like this sort of thing, here is a link to the Old Spice YouTube channel, so you can see Mustafa in action in those acclaimed TV spots.
