Old Spice guy as Luke Cage

There's a massive political campaign on the horizon -- and it has nothing to do with elephants or donkeys.
Isaiah Mustafa, better known as the "Old Spice Guy," has been vocal about his passion for the Marvel character Luke Cage ever since his [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owGykVbfgUE"]hilarious series of commercials[/ame] went viral. Back in July of 2010, he stopped by G4 to talk all things comic books and officially announce his campaign for the part, saying, "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."

Re: Old Spice guy as Luke Cage

I love those commercials(well, mostly the earlier ones). "I'm on a horse"

He's definitely committed to getting this role so he'd probably do very well but my only concern is that he's not bulky enough. He's certainly cut and in great shape but the comic book Luke Cage seems to be bigger, like a wrestler.

I think Micheal Jai White(from Spawn fame) would be a much better choice. He's bigger and he is actually a highly trained martial artist, 7 blackbelts.

Re: Old Spice guy as Luke Cage

Hmm I'm beginning to like this thread. Anyway back on topic lets see who would make a good Luke Cage BJ Penn might be good but he might not fit because he's to light skinned (I mean no prejudice)

Re: Old Spice guy as Luke Cage

As much as I like Penn he wouldn't be good because he's not black and he's not big.

How about Tiny Zeus Lister as Cage? He's kinda old but he's huge, black and intimidating-

Re: Old Spice guy as Luke Cage

Yeah Terry would probably pull it off better from the physical aspect, but I don't know if he can pull off a serious roll. Then again, Marvel movies tend to toss in some comedy so he might actually be the best pick.

He did really good in Everybody hates Chris as a father of Chris Rock hell bent on saving every penny and letting nothing go to waste.

Compared to the other Old Spice guy? Not sure what else he's done but so far I've only seen him play the same satirical character. Crews has a pretty good range despite being in mostly comedies. Like Tails mentioned he was actually pretty convincing in Everybody hates Chris. It's still a comedy but he plays a hard working poor father really well. He's also been in lots of movies, sometimes in serious roles.

But I agree he might not be the best choice, but because he's so well known for his hilarity-

But this scene shows he can be intimidating as well!
