Isaiah Mustafa Bio, Age
Isaiah Amir Mustafa, an actor Isaiah, born in Portland Oregon on February 11, 1974, grew up in Laguna Hills, California. His parents Shahidah Mustafa-Davis and John Wali Mustafa owned and operated a limousine service in this part of California. As one of seven children and the youngest of his parents, Jesaja lost his father at an early age. His father died in a car accident while sleeping late one night at the wheel.

Isaiah Mustafa Career
Isaiah Mustafa was an athlete, of course. Although he didn’t play high school football, he joined the basketball team and ran courses. He also went to the Moorpark College soccer team exams in anticipation of receiving athlete money. After becoming a member, he began as a Free Security and later became a broad receiver for Arizona State Sun Devils.
But things didn’t go well for him at the club. He had been on the bank for years and so nobody had the chance to watch what he had to offer. After two years on the bench, he was lucky enough to play the Rose Bowl in 1997, during the game between the Ohio State Buckeyes and the then champion Sun Devils.
Isaiah Mustafa originally loved teaching and hoped to become a high school teacher after school. But a sports agent who knew he would be a good player despite his minimal experience advised him to play for NFL teams. After the tests, he was signed by a professional football team called Tennessee Oilers, but not as part of the team’s main list. He was sent to the Barcelona Dragons of NFL Europe in 1998. The following year, he spent some time with Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Brown’s. In 2000 he joined the Seattle Seahawks training camp.
Before his camp training, Isaiah Mustafa showed that he can also do well in acting and then completed an acting career in the 90s. He started with smaller roles in various TV series like Days of Our lives, Ugly Betty, etc. His acting skills attracted the attention of the euphoric audience, so he concentrated more on acting than on football.
Accordingly, he made a talent deal with NBC in 2010 and has since become a more regular face on television than in sports. He played as a supporting actor in the comedy Horrible Bosses. But his fame came from his shirtless advertising in Old Spice’s The Man Your Man Could Smell Like campaign in 2010.
The actor who played the character of Old Spice also hosted TBS Special Funniest commercials of the year in 2010 and 2011. He also featured in 2 episodes of ABC’s action-drama series Charlie’s Angels. Mustafa played Cyrus in the two episodes of CW’s espionage drama series Nikita. So far there have been many television shows and films, including Sirens, Shadow Hunters, The Last Supper, and more. He also played in Madea’s Big Happy Family.
His Daughter, Wife
Mustafa not only knows how to encourage men to smell of a man like him, but he also knows how to suggest a man like him. The former soccer player suggested 2016 to his girlfriend Lisa Mitchell. The suggestion was made in New Zealand on Christmas Eve. The committed duo still has to go down the aisle.
But it’s not the first time Mustafa has planned to get married. He had been married before but separated from his ex-wife, with whom he shares a daughter named Haley Mustafa. Not much is known about his ex-wife, but it seems they have gone on forever.
