brendan fraser At the age of 54, he achieved one of the great dreams of every film actor: winning the Oscar. The trophy was obtained thanks to “The Whale” (“The Whale”), a film in which the star, best known as an action hero and comedian, showcases his acting skills in a complex drama embodying the emotional life of an extremely obese man.
With more than three decades of acting, beginning with the film “Dogfight” in 1991, Fraser has gone through film, television and theater. His most famous moment came at the turn of the millennium, with “The Mummy” (1999) turning him into the action hero of the moment thanks to his natural charm, his good looks and his developed comic sense. .
But a series of personal problems, such as the devastating physical consequences of his demanding acting job and sexual harassment at the hands of then-HFPA president Philip Berk, caused the quality of his work to plummet and by 2008, after disastrous box office results for films like “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor” and “Journey to the Center of the Earth” drove him into relative obscurity.
Despite this, the actor did not stop working, leaving memorable roles in series such as “The Affair”, “Condor” and “Doom Patrol”, as well as, more recently, a supporting role in “No Sudden Move”. The recent attention to his performance in “The Whale,” where Fraser plays a 550-pound college professor, has served to remind the world that he is an actor worth watching. And if we talk about things that are worth seeing, here is a list of films by the interpreter that you cannot miss.
