Suave. Confident. Pleasantly odored. You’ll have to add persistent to the list of adjectives you can use to describe Isaiah Mustafa, the Old Spice Guy. The dude really wants to play Luke Cage, so what’s he going to do? Instead of sitting on his duff and waiting for the project to happen, he already went ahead and shot a trailer for a LUKE CAGE movie… starring himself.

The clip's got the same city backdrops and general mis en scene from the photo shoot Mustafa did about a year ago to make his interest perfectly clear. Either the crew had some serious attention to detail, or maybe this was actually produced at the same time as the photos and it’s only now been made public.

Sweet Christmas this!
Sweet Christmas this!

Mustafa’s said that he’s met with Marvel about the notion. A few months back, he even played Luke Cage in one of Marvel.com's WHAT THE--?! videos. Seeing as how this is an officially sanctioned, licensed and produced video, I think it proof of at least some mutual interest... so maybe this whole crazy idea isn’t totally out of the question.

== TEASER ==

But enough talk! More action! Enjoy the video below. I’m not even that big a Cage fan but, after watching this, I’m a believer. Dude punches through a wall to get at some goons! If you agree that Mustafa’s the living embodiment of the Hero for Hire, then you ought to go “like” the dude’s petition page at Facebook.

I think that he would be really good. I hope Marvel will watch this and cast him.

I don't see it. 
 
I think he's hilarious in the old spice commercials, but I don't think he's a good fit for Luke Cage.

 I like him better as the Black Panther, but he would make a good Luke Cage.

Power man in any incarnation woudl be awesome.  I would love to see a Iron fist/Luke cage film set in the 70's and have a Dolemyte or I'm gonna get you sukka feel to it. 
 
I know the character has come a long long way from those days.  I just think it would make a good and entertainging film....much better than Green hornet or the Spirit for sure.    
 
Sadly, I say this...it sounds lame, but if Quentin Terrintino and robert Rodrigez made it...people would eat it up.

Is that for NBC or ABC. I think it will fit well after the office or CSI.

I don't think a Luke Cage movie will be very good.Luke is one of my favorite charcters but his film won't do much

Hope this happens. He looks the part and I love his acting style but  isn't he American? Shouldn't there be a white actor from the UK who can bring more to this part? lol. just kidding.

He really does fit the bill, loved the eye effects as he was breathing. Brilliant. Hope he stirs the pot and makes enough noise for Marvel to hear him, would be fun to see a Luke Cage movie.

Too scrawny.  He'd need to pack on some muscle to play Luke Cage.

I think Luke Cage would work better as a tv series first. Maybe a heroes for hire tv show with Iron Fist??
A super powered buddy detective/bounty hunter show. Now that's awesome!
Daredevil could cameo in it a couple times too!

I was clearly trolling, I thought it would be funny for all the people upset over black guy in Thor.

He should be... The BLUE MARVEL!
One of the better origin stories to boot, plus he looks cool.
If an unknown like Hancock did well, then Blue Marvel should follow easy.

It isn't a real trailer the actor made it himself, it isn't going to be a real t.v. show. At least not yet.
 
Luke Cage is one of my favorite characters I don't really care who plays him as long as it's done right.

That is actually an awesome idea. He looks the part, sounds the part and with a bit of extra training he could be Luke Cage! Make this happen Marvel!

That man wants the job. Personally, I think he should play Luke Cage or Terry Crews should.

Not bad looking! Though I must admit, it's a little weird seeing a Luke Cage incarnation where he isn't really, really big.

If they made a Luke Cage TV show yeah, but not really a movie. He was okay on Chuck but not enough to carry a movie I think.

@Babs: that's not racist that's preposterous but Mustafa is a little to clean cut for Luke though Michael Jai white would be a better choice or like previously stated Terry Crews
