We're on a Boat ... With the Old Spice Guy, Isaiah Mustafa (VIDEO)

Isaiah Mustafa (aka the 'Old Spice Guy') has had a ridiculous amount of success stemming from one commercial.

Jon Cassar Sets the Record Straight About 'The Kennedys'

Jon Cassar, director and producer of seasons 1–7 of '24,' took on a new beast when he wrangled the miniseries 'The Kennedys' onto prime time as director.
