Isaiah Mustafa cast in Jennifer Aniston movie 'Horrible Bosses'

Isaiah-mustafa-jennifer-aniston That Old Spice deal keeps turning out new work for Isaiah Mustafa, the six-pack-showing star of those body wash commercials.

The onetime NFL player turned actor will appear in "Horrible Bosses," the ensemble comedy starring Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey.

"I'm playing a cop because I play these authoritative characters well. I don't know exactly who I'm in the scene with -- maybe Jennifer Aniston!" Mustafa told the Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday.

"Bosses" tells the tale of three disgruntled workers who conspire to hand off employer revenge duties to each other. 

It's been one home run after another for Mustafa, who's got a holding deal with NBC and a part in Tyler Perry's "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf." Just don't compare him to "The Jersey Shore" star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

"Who names himself the Situation? If only the Old Spice Guy would have thought of that one. How outrageous is it? I do not take myself seriously like that -- not in the least bit -- that would be so pretentious," he said.
