Isaiah Mustafa, Old Spice
When Old Spice sought to revamp its image in 2010 it looked no further than Isaiah Mustafa, a former college football player who went on to play on the practice squads of four NFL teams and had the muscles to prove it.
Emmy-winning commercials featuring an often-shirtless Mustafa, and his bulging biceps, made him a watercooler topic and put Old Spice on the map once again.
Mustafa parlayed his fame as "The Old Spice Guy" into a variety of acting roles, including a character on the short-lived TV version of "Charlie's Angels," and a spot on People magazine's "Most Beautiful People" list in 2010.
In April of this year Mustafa kept his shirt for a more, kind of, serious role, playing the U.S. president in a commercial for Maccabee, an Israeli brand of beer.
