Isaiah vs. FabioIt's going to be sweaty and dirty, but oh-so-great-smelling later today when the old and new 'Old Spice' guys go at each other in the bathroom.

That's right: Isaiah Mustafa has accepted his successor Fabio's challenge to a duel. The two hunks, tongues squarely in cheeks, will face off at 12PM ET Tuesday, in the online showdown billed as "Mano a Mano in El Baño."

Fabio issued the challenge yesterday with the aid of two comedy duelling pistols and Mustafa quickly accepted, ridiculing his opponent's tactics: "A real man would have challenged me to a duel with a left-to-right slap across the face."

Isaiah Mustafa, 'Love Bites''Love Bites' (Thu., 10PM ET on NBC) continues to be a fun diversion for summer, like a fluffy romantic comedy where you know every beat of the plot, but it manages to pull you along regardless. With it's anthology format revolving around a core group of characters and plethora of guest stars, it's reminding us more and more of 'Love Boat' each week.

This time around, we got a strange little story set up in space where somehow Ken Jeong is allowed to be an astronaut. More expectedly, he provided a little bit of comic relief as well. Eddie McClintock ('Warehouse 13') was convinced his girlfriend was cheating on him, but he learned that her picture was cheating on him as well with Jeong's character in the bathroom.

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

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Jun 22nd 2011 3:00PM
Isaiah Mustafa (aka the 'Old Spice Guy') has had a ridiculous amount of success stemming from one commercial. Of course he went on to make more of his 'The Man Your Man Could Smell Like' ads, but none struck a note in the market more than the first.

It didn't stop there. He took on the Old Spice role because he was looking for a way into the industry, and boy, did he get it. Since the ads' soaring popularity, Mustafa has appeared in several TV shows ('Ugly Betty,' 'Eli Stone,' 'NCIS,' 'Days of Our Lives' among them) and even has a role in the upcoming movie 'Horrible Bosses.'

AOL TV caught up with Mustafa at a stopover in Toronto, and he was -- where else -- on a tall ship filled with beautiful women and very tasty food. He talked about his favorite TV shows, what he thinks about all his success and how he handles this whole 'sex symbol' thing.

The spy stuff, the action, the romance ... but even with Chuck and Sarah taking the next step in their relationship and Morgan finally finding a lady he loves, Chuck and Morgan might always be the show's one great relationship. A bromance for the ages, if you will.

But in this exclusive video from NBC, we learn that Morgan (or rather Joshua Gomez who plays Morgan) might not only have bro-time for one guy. Yes, even he can't resist the charms, booming voice and sparkly eyes of handsome guest star Isaiah Mustafa.

Isaiah Mustafa vs. David Hasselhoff on 'Funniest Commercials'The 'Funniest Commercials of the Year: 2010' (Thu., 10PM ET on TBS) was appropriately hosted by the most (in)famous commercial star of the year -- Isaiah Mustafa, the "Old Spice guy." He's the tongue-in-cheek suave "man your man could smell like." But another manly man dropped by to challenge Mustafa's manliness. (Or was it a contest of who could be the most over-the-top?) David Hasselhoff argued, "I make fans melt." Mustafa countered, "But I make the ladies melt."

The Hoff: "I'm a TV star, a movie star and a rock star."
Mustafa: "So am I."
The Hoff: "You're not a rock star!"
Mustafa: "But I smell like a rock star."

Rock stars smell like Old Spice? Anyway, check out who won.

Isaiah Mustafa on Funny Commercials, 'Chuck' and Being "The Old Spice Guy"

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 16th 2010 2:30PM
Isaiah Mustafa, the If the name Isaiah Mustafa doesn't ring a bell, then all you need to do is think of the words "Old Spice." Since February, Mustafa has been the very manly face of the venerable brand's line of body washes, appearing in a series of very funny ads that have gone viral in a big way. The first ad in the series debuted online before reaching people's television screens, and each of the ads in the series have multiple millions of views on YouTube.

The ads, which have paired Mustafa's hilarious over-the-top characterization of "the man your man could smell like" with creative visual effects, have propelled the former NFL practice-squad player to "That Guy"-level of stardom, one he has capitalized on with a role in 'Chuck' and upcoming roles in the films 'Horrible Bosses' and 'Mededa's Big Happy Family,' among others.

Tonight at 10PM ET, he'll be hosting 'Funniest Commercials of the Year: 2010.' And, while his ads will undoubtedly be in the mix, the self-described "big TV fan" is passionate about all the other ads on the special, many of which can be seen at TBS's website VeryFunnyAds.com.

Old Spice Guy Owes Fame to the 'Weakest Link'?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.
