‘Aladdin’ Lead Reveals He’s Landed No New Auditions – Despite Movie Generating A Billion

Published: Wednesday 4th Dec 2019 by Sam

‘Aladdin’ broke box office records and delivered over a billion dollars for Disney. However, the live-action remake of the flick hasn’t generated automatic success for its lead Mena Massoud. 

Speaking in a new interview, the star got all sorts of candid about what life has been like since the film’s May release.

Details below…

Waxing honest to the Daily Beast, the Canadian-Egyptian says the roles haven’t been rolling in after starring alongside Will Smith in the hit film:

“I’m kind of tired of staying quiet about it. I want people to know that it’s not always dandelions and roses when you’re doing something like Aladdin.

[People think] ‘He must have made millions. He must be getting all these offers.’ It’s none of those things. I haven’t had a single audition since Aladdin came out.

The big truth is I haven’t really seen a big anything from [Aladdin].”

The 28-year-old went on to say of his reality:

“There’s always a wild card or two when you’re casting. I’m usually the wild card. In a room of Caucasian guys, a director might be like, OK, let’s see, like, two guys who aren’t. And maybe they’ll be the wild card choice.”

It’s not all doom and gloom, though. Because Massoud is gearing up to star in thriller ‘Reprisal,’ which premieres on Hulu December 6th. He notably scored the role before the release of ‘Aladdin.’

    Sadly, I knew this was going to happen to him. He wasn’t a “star” before this role and he was only chosen because of his looks, not because of his great acting abilities. I wish him the best.

    • Jasmine December 4, 2019

      I agree. He is very cute but a little too cute and feminine looking for casting directors to work with. He should copy after Jesse Metcalfe and gain muscle to go with his looks and he will get work. Right now his body is too skinny and too scrawny.

      • ? The Real Jasmine’s Grape Juice ?? December 4, 2019

        Just like your husband who I bent over last week

      • Jasmine December 4, 2019

        In your dreams u nasty pervert. U wish u had a man but never will because no men want garbage like u. U are scum and trash.

    • Clarksooon December 4, 2019

      He is cute. I wonder what his hairy bus sy tast like. I wanna eat it.

      • ? The Real Jasmine’s Grape Juice ?? December 4, 2019

        It taste like skittles

  3. Jamon_84 December 4, 2019

    To be honest he wasn’t the main attraction to Aladdin, if at all. The name alone and the fact Will Smith played the Genie. If I walked pass him, I wouldn’t recognize him. I wish him the best, however Disney movies are grossing over a billion because they are remakes of classics.

  4. Oh plz December 4, 2019

    This entitled generation is just ridiculous. You were an unknown before “Aladdin.” The movie making a billion dollars worldwide doesn’t automatically mean you, with no other significant acting credits to your name, are going to be immediately landing the lead of other big-budget and/or Oscar-worthy films. I understand his frustration, but you still have to hustle.

    • PinotNoir December 4, 2019

      Word.

      Get used to being typecast.

      Or rather race-cast.

  5. Jae December 4, 2019

    The movie sucked!!! Their I said it.

    • Bey Best December 4, 2019

      Just like your illiterate spelling. There, I said it.

  6. XYZ December 4, 2019

    The movie wasnt good and his character actually annoying…

  7. Bey Best December 4, 2019

    That is how the cookie crumbles in show business.

        The only THOT I see is Camila Cabello. Why are her legs open on the cover of her first album AND this new album? Can she not sell anything with her legs CLOSED?? Keep buying streams boo. That payola is going to dry up soon 🙂 Look at her other FOUR singles from this year LOL

        Once again for the b*tches in the back here is a list of Camila Cabello’s flops:

        Oh Camila buying streams now?

        With Camila flop singles she’s still the 4th most streamed female artist on spotify in 2019

        Normani didnt appear on any end of the year list.

        Seniorita is the most streamed song of 2019
        Camila is the first and only female artist to have 2 songs with 1 billion streams each
        Camila won 2 Latin Grammy awards
        Seniorita nominated for 2020 grammy for best pop collaboration.

        What are normani achievements?
        Normani has the industry buzzing but they industry paid her dust and didnt nominate her for a grammy.

      • only facts December 4, 2019

        It’s clear Camila is buying streams. 🙂 She is the FACE of payola. This isn’t news.

        You can’t even spell Senorita correctly. This is why I don’t debate with you. Going toe to toe over such an “amazing song” yet you don’t even know how to spell the title of the song?? LOL. Camila is buying streams, but is she now buying people to comment for her because this is TRAGIC!

        seniorita??????????? IDIOT!

      • only facts December 4, 2019

      • Clarkso00n December 4, 2019

        How many Grammy nominations did normani earn this year?
        ??

    Once again, a post has been derailed by Clarkson and co. Are the mods going to continue allowing this foolishness? I’m starting to think Clarkson is a paid troll.

  10. 2bad2bme December 4, 2019

    I can’t stand when cute light skin people get mad when they are not the main attraction all the time. JOIN THE CLUB!!!

  11. JOHNVIDAL December 4, 2019

    It’s normal. These people are not good actors. It’s like the guy who played superman en 2005 or so. He didnt do anything else. No star potential.
    These cash cows type of remakes are not making any impact anyway despite the money they make to begin with.

  12. Ropeburn December 4, 2019

    I’d hire him to star in a “private” film. LOL!

  13. DMA_Moon December 4, 2019

    Damn. Even i auditioned for something last year and I’m in the medical field.
    There has to be a modicum of him being picky but I’m sure there’s some truth to it….and he did great in the movie.
