Brendan Fraser is one of those stars who had seized audiences after his successful roles in The Mummy & The Mummy Returns. However, after a few roles in The Mummy III, Journey To The Center Of The Earth and a few roles here and there, he mysteriously disappeared from the big screen for years.
After he was casted in the on-screen adaptation of Doom Patrol, his fandom became alive once again, and now that the actor is making a return on the big screen once again, his fandom has come alive.
The actor revealed to GQ back in 2018 that all those years filming and doing his stunts in action movies had really taken a toll on his body, and he had to go through a lot of recuperation to overcome the damage.
I believe I probably was trying too hard, in a way that’s destructive. By the time I did the third Mummy picture in China [in 2008] I was put together with tape and ice — just, like, really nerdy and fetishy about ice packs. crew-cap ice packs and downhill-mountain-biking pads, ’cause they’re small and light and they can fit under your clothes. I was building an exoskeleton for myself daily.
While the actor had gone through a lot of hardships both psychologically and physically in order to establish himself in the industry, likened himself to the horse named Boxer from Animal Farm, who keeps persevering until the end, no matter what.
Screw-cap ice packs and downhill-mountain-biking pads, ’cause they’re small and light and they can fit under your clothes. I was building an exoskeleton for myself daily. This is gonna really probably be a little saccharine for you. But I felt like the horse from Animal Farm, whose job it was to work and work and work… I don’t know if I’ve been sent to the glue factory, but I’ve felt like I’ve had to rebuild sh*t that I’ve built that got knocked down and do it again for the good of everyone. Whether it hurts you or not.
No Sudden Move will feature Brendan Fraser alongside David Harbour, and Jon Hamm. The movie will be set in 1954, following Fraser as the protagonist with a group of criminal coming together due to unforeseen circumstances.[Via]
