Osundairo Brothers Struggling To Land Acting Gigs After Jussie Smollett Scandal
The Osundairo brothers who attacked Jussie Smollett in his alleged hoax are now struggling to land acting gigs. Get the scoop.
The brothers who attacked Jussie Smollett in his alleged hoax are now crying the blues because they are struggling to land acting gigs.
It’s pilot season and aspiring actors Abel Osundairo and Ola Osundairo may have executed their last acting gig on the streets of Chicago in the wee hours of the morning.
Sources close to the Osundairo brothers — Abel and Ola — tell TMZ … the 2 have come up empty trying to land an agent in the past several weeks. We’re told they’ve reached out to about 10 of the top agencies in Chicago and none have been interested in signing them.
This especially hurts right now because it’s pilot season in the TV biz, and actors like the bros can’t even get auditions without an agent.
What’s worse is Abel actually HAD signed with the Gray Talent Group about a month before his involvement in the Jussie drama became known, and got dropped shortly afterward.
The reason he was given, according to our sources, was generic and didn’t mention the Smollett case … but it was obvious. We’re told the agency told Abel it couldn’t provide him the opportunities he desired, adding … “parting ways with talented actors like yourself is a difficult decision and not a direct reflection on your character or your abilities.”
