Smell that? The Old Spice guy is heading to Nikita.
Actor Isaiah Mustafa will guest-star on the upcoming third season of The CW spy drama, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively. He'll play a charming former Division agent with ambiguous loyalties.
Cyrus (Mustafa) is a suave, handsome and charismatic arms dealer and procurement guy who used to get late Division chief Percy anything he wanted. How does our favorite rogue agent encounter Cyrus? Our best guess is that he's one of the "Dirty Thirty" that Nikita and Co. are tracking down since they're the agents who didn't return as ordered after the fall of Division,.
Mustafa first gained fame as the Old Spice pitchman as "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like," who had a smooth voice, cocked eyebrow and nonchalant attitude. His Nikita role won't be the first time he's played an agent. He portrayed one of the undercover "Gretas" on NBC's spy-comedy Chuck. His big-screen credits include Horrible Bosses and The Three Stooges.
Nikita premieres Friday, Oct. 19 at 9/8c on The CW.
