Abel and Ola Osundairo are the two men who allegedly “attacked” Jussie Smollett when the Empire actor was reportedly the victim of homophobic beat down. While the brothers were dropped from any charges – apologizing for their involvement in the case – it seems as though they can’t score any jobs, even though their name has been cleared.
TMZ reports that the Osundairo brothers have come up empty-handed trying to land acting gigs and agents. The publication details how they’ve reached out to 10 of the top agents in Chicago but no dice. Apparently, Abel was signed with Gray Talent Group for a month or so before the Jussie controversy but they later dropped him. They told him that “parting ways with talented actors like yourself is a difficult decision and not a direct reflection on your character or your abilities.”
The brothers also share a fitness business but after what seemed to be a busy time it turned out to just be “clients” who were looking to get more information on Jussie and the case. As for Abel, it looks like he’s succeeding with boxing since winning the prestigious Chicago Golden Gloves Tournament last month.
