Even if convicted he is employable in one niche area, BET, they are desperate to bring aboard anyone who fits their hiring criteria, and he qualifies easily.Smollett may now be unemployable, he certainly appears to have been 'resting' since 2018. Even by Hollywood standards, he's a lame duck and an embarrassment. I doubt if many agents or producers will be returning his calls in the future.
He has no transferable skills and no experience outside acting. Life in the real world will hurt.
