Brendan Fraser was absolutely everywhere in the ’90s and early ’00s. He starred in beloved kids’ classics like George of the Jungle and hit blockbusters such as The Mummy and The Mummy Returns. And let’s not forget Oscar-winning fare like Gods and Monsters. His movies made millions… for a while. Unfortunately, after that, he did just about the worst thing a person in Hollywood can do: he got older and stopped being hot. So what does he look like now? And can we expect a comeback anytime soon? The world of movies is a fickle place, but surely it can’t be that fickle. Right?
As a fresh-faced young actor, Fraser had a couple of tiny TV roles before making it in the movies. His first film was the 1992 comedy Encino Man, but it was the sports movie School Ties that same year that really marked him out as a talent. Acting opposite future stars Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, he played a Jewish high school student facing antisemitism from his peers.
