The Old Spice Man really, really, really wants to be Luke Cage!
Isiah Mustafa, who charmed his way into our lives with his antics as the spokesperson for Old Spice, has been campaigning for a while to be considered for the role of Luke Cage, a Marvel comics superhero. So much so that he’s already met with Marvel expressing his interest and even (apparently) produced a trailer for the film himself.It is not known how the trailer came into being just yet, but I think it is fairly safe to say that he had a big hand in making it happen.
The trailer itself isn’t bad, but I could definitely see him in the role. He has the self-confident attitude down, but needs to pack on more muscle, as he is a big friggin dude in the comics.
Luke Cage, also called Power Man, was one of the first black heroes to get his own book. His story is pretty simple: He was wrongly imprisoned as a kid, and underwent an experimental treatment to secure early parole. The treatment was meant to create full immunity to illness, and it did just that and more! The treatments enhanced his strength, musculature, and made his skin almost impervious.. He then became a private “street level” detective, usually helping the people in his neighborhood.

Over the past few years, Old Spice has been busting out some entertaining commercials (especially the Terry Crew commercials) that ranges from the dream man to Bruce Campbell and then to a Centaur (see, it’s nerd related!).
Well, ladies, have you been upset with how your god smells? Do you wish he/she/it will have a scent of a god that have power and could unleash unthinkable evil within seconds? Then Cthulhu is here tell you why you should get them Great Old Spice Body Wash. Check the commercial out as it’s short and enjoyable and see why Old Spice is better than Axe, the no ass effect (well, that’s how it was for me when I used Axe).
Isaiah Mustafa, best known as the of Old Spice guy (or rather the guy all other guys should smell like) is rather interested in playing the role of Marvel‘s “Hero For Hire” Luke Cage, Power Man.
Last month on G4 he had this to say:
“I will say this…please, get this thing going. I want to be Luke Cage, OK ! I want to be Luke Cage! You have no idea, I mean really, yes. I made a dream board of it and put my face on the comic. I said I want to be Luke Cage one day.”
Since then his determination has been vigilant. To the extent that he has started a Facebook campaign and hired some photographer/photoshop geeks turn him into the character to prove what a good choice he is for the role (pictured above).
Ok, I could see this guy as Luke Cage. He’s dreamy (what? Can’t a straight guy comment on another mans sexiness?), has the physique as well as great presence.
Can he act well enough to carry a film? Who knows. But he looks the part and has a fan following based entirely on a series of deodorant commercials.
