7 Things You Need to Know About Aladdin’s Mena Massoud
After auditioning more than 2,000 actors and actresses, the world’s luckiest street rat has finally been found…
Earlier today, Disney revealed the actor who will play the title character in Guy Ritchie’s live-action reboot of Aladdin and that’s an almost unheard of actor named Mena Massoud. It’s about to be a whole new world for the relatively unknown soon-to-be star…
And while there are many fun facts to know about Mena, here are seven that really stand out!
1. He’s About to Star in the Amazon series Jack Ryan: Mena’s face may not look familiar to you, but it will. The young star is slated to appear as Tarek Kassar in the new series, which features John Krasinski as Tom Clancy’s famed Jack Ryan. He’s also appeared on several TV series, including The 99, Poser and Open Heart.

2. He’s a Canuck: Unlike Aladdin, Mena is not from Agrabah (and that’s because it’s a fictional country). The actor was born in Egypt but raised in Canada. His Instagram currently lists him as living in both Toronto and Los Angeles. 
3. He Only has 4,000 Instagram Followers: As of Saturday afternoon, the new star only has 4,000 (technically 4,042) followers. We have a feeling that’s about to change!

5. He’s Got Some Crazy Curls: The star’s Instagram is chock full of snaps of his unruly locks. He often tags the photos “#crazyhair.”
6. He’s Got a Sister: The star has a sister named Margaret, whom he’s all about being siblings with.
7. He Eats Healthy: In several of his Instagram photos, the health conscious actor has tagged the photos “#vegan” or “#meatlessmanifesto.”
