Born on February 11, 1974, in Portland, Oregon, Isaiah Amir Mustafa is a well known American actor and a football player. He was a student of history at Arizona State University. He started his acting career from small roles in series including Ugly Betty and Days of Our Lives. Gradually, he showed up in series like Charlie's Angels, Nikita and also in Sirens. He has 128k followers on twitter. Let's look up his brief bio below.
Mustafa is the youngest son of the seven children, born to John Wali Mustafa (a limousine service owner / provider in Laguna Hills, California), and Shahidah Mustafa-Davis. While at Santa Clara High School in Oxnard, California, Mustafa ran track and played basketball. Though he hadn't played football in high school, Mustafa did try out the football team at Moorpark College in hopes of receiving an athletic scholarship. He first joined the team as a free safety, and then was later a wide receiver.
In 1999, Mustafa transferred to Arizona State University and took up the wide receiver position in Arizona State Sun Devils, but had an unfortunate face-off with a coach and was benched during his senior year. He was in the Sun Devil's team that faced Ohio State Buckeyes in the 1997 Rose Bowl. Mustafa wanted to become a high school teacher but was suggested by a sports agent that he should try for NFL. He was then signed by Tennessee Oilers to their practice squad and was sent in 1998 to Barcelona Dragons of the NFL Europe. He also played one season in 1999 with the Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns' in their practice squads and attended a training camp of the Seattle Seahawks in 2000.
Mustafa had a restaurant (now closed) at Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles back in 2000, called Jo Jo's Barbecue. Mustafa also won $47,000 on the American TV game show The Weakest Link. Interestingly, what helped him was his knowledge of Doctor Doom's first name, and that helped him correctly answer what the first name of Doctor Frankenstein was.
