After several failures and admittedly "dumb luck," Isaiah Mustafa (aka Old Spice Guy) has finally found his destiny: acting. On 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), Mustafa gave us a rundown of his career path so far: a junior-college football scholarship (after not playing the sport in high school), the NFL (sort of), a failed restaurant, the 'Weakest Link,' the infamous Old Spice commercials, and now (next year) 'Horrible Bosses' with Jennifer Aniston.
Mustafa said, "Show business is easy because you never see who cuts you ... but in the NFL they sit there with you," list off your weaknesses, then "send you on your way with a box of your equipment."
After that, he tried running a restaurant in Melrose: It closed within six months. Then, explained Mustafa, "I do what every broke guy does -- I go on a game show." And the rest is history.
