Isaiah Mustafa Wants to Play Luke Cage in a Live-Action Movie

Isaiah Mustafa Wants to Play Luke Cage in a Live-Action Movie

In a recent interview, Isaiah Mustafa announced that he would like to play Luke Cage!



You may not know the name Isaiah Mustafa but you know his face. He is "the man on the horse" in the quirky Old Spice commercials. Mustafa stopped by G4 Thursday to talk about the making of his new OS commercial, which is a pretty cool step by step walk through.

However, when he finished discussing the commercials Kevin Pereira asked him about his personal plans beyond Old Spice.

Here is his response and where it gets interesting to CBM fans...

"Well I'm starting on a movie Monday that's called Free Enterprise 2. It's a sequel to the cult classic Free Enterprise about comic books. I'm a comic junkie myself."

"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."


Do you think he looks the part or can handle the character of Luke Cage? With all the buzz surrounding a possible Luke Cage film or TV show with or without Iron Fist, maybe we should pay more attention to this kind of statement than we normally would.

He starts talking Cage around the 7:00 mark.
