    This GQ profile of Brendan Fraser is fantastic:

    His eyes are pale and a bit watery these days—less wide than they used to be when he was new to the screen, playing guys who were often new to the world. Blue-gray stubble around the once mighty chin, gray long-sleeve shirt draped indifferently over the once mighty body. I’m 35: There was a time when the sight of Fraser was as familiar to me as the furniture in my parents’ house.

    Glad to see he's doing better. Always seemed like a nice guy who has been through a lot. Good luck to him.

    Gods and Monsters is a wonderful film. It's definitely my favorite role of his.

    Please let this be the start of getting him back into the Mummy franchise. It's what we all deserve.

    Wrecked 'em? Damn near killed 'em!

    Some folks may not like it, but I still think Blast From the Past is charmingly cheesy and entertaining af. Good on him for having things turn around.

    This was a really interesting read. Sucks that he's part of the #metoo movement too.

    It doesn't sound like his body would be up to that task judging from the article.

    I enjoyed the first mummy movie, the second was okay not really worth watching again IMO. The third one was just pure garbage.

    I think even Brandon knows he’s milked that franshice dry. Personally I hope he jumps into some drama/thriller roles.

    This man deserves better. I'm glad the writer treated his story with respect while allowing his personality to shine through.

    The Mummy is one of the most perfect action/adventure movies of all time, and a huge part of it was due to his charisma in that role. And Beni. Beni was funny as fuck.

    Agreed. I always thought there was something genuinely likable about him regardless of the role he was playing. I'm excited for Trust. Hopefully it's the proper catalyst for his comeback.

    George of the Jungle and Dudley Do Right deserve trilogies.

    Funny, I didn't know he lived so close to me and it explains why I saw him sitting outside eating across the street from my job 2 summers ago. I was standing on the sidewalk talking to a friend who works at the restaurant he was sitting at. My friend goes "did you see who's behind you?" I turned, made immediate direct eye contact, and a very disheveled and unhappy looking Brendan Fraser looked through my soul as if he would punch me in the face if I even said hi. I didn't.
