Aladdin grossed $1 billion worldwide, but that doesn't mean it got Mena any new career opportunities.
He has yet to land a single audition.
Mena says in an interview:
“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’. ‘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.”
Massoud can next be seen in a supporting role opposite Abigail Spencer in Hulu’s revenge noir series “Reprisal.” He landed this role before Aladdin opened.
