Brendan Fraser - Details


Brendan FraserBRENDAN FRASER a versatile young actor with a unique talent for tapping into the humane and often lighthearted nature of his characters, cemented his reputation as a major film presence in Stephen Sommers' smash hit action/horror adventure, The Mummy. An ambitious retooling of the 1932 horror classic, the new version starred Fraser as an American serving in the French Foreign Legion who becomes involved with an English archaeological expedition -- and the ancient secrets they unleash. The film also starred Rachel Weisz and John Hannah.

Fraser recently completed work on The Mummy Returns, the sequel to this 1999 hit that re-teams him with director Stephen Sommers and co-stars Rachel Weisz and John Hannah; "The Rock" also co-stars.

Fraser was most recently seen as a man who gets more than he bargained for when he makes a pact with the Devil, in Bedazzled, also starring Elizabeth Hurley, and directed by Harold Ramis. Fraser played the title character in Hugh Wilson's live action version of Jay Ward's classic 1960's cartoon, Dudley Do-Right. Co-starring with Sarah Jessica Parker and Alfred Molina, the story followed the adventures of the bumbling Canadian Mountie who "always gets his man" - the villainous Snidely Whiplash.

In January 2001, Fraser begins work on The Quiet American, based on Graham Greene's 1955 Vietnam-based political thriller. Phillip Noyce will direct the film, which also stars Michael Caine. The film is set to shoot in Australia and Vietnam.

Later in 2001, Fraser will begin rehearsals in London for the role of 'Brick' in a West End production of Tennessee Williams' "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof." Tony® Award winner Anthony Page will direct and Frances O'Connor will star opposite Fraser in the role of Maggie Pollitt.
