There are worse monikers to be stuck with than "The Old Spice Guy." After all, Isaiah Mustafa revolutionized an entire brand by playing the man your man could smell like. Still, it's great to see Mustafa moving forward in his acting career, this time playing an arms-dealer in the "Nikita" episode, "Sideswipe."
