I've said it before and I will say it again: The three biggest cinema stars in my lifetime are Frankie Muniz, Johnathon Brandis and Brenden Fraser.
Fraser is back in a new movie starring Brooke Shields called "Vengence". Here is a description of his juicy/meaty role:
Brendan Fraser is playing the lead in Roger Kumble's film, which centers on a real estate developer who gets more than he bargained for from a band of raccoons when he pushes too hard into more pristine territory. Shields will play Tami Sanders, the wife of Fraser's character.
I am sure there are some people out there with no eye for cinematic genius that think that this role sounds lame, befitting an actor of Fraser's status, but that's not the case. Its such a challenging role to make this character awesome, that the casting agent KNEW that there was only one man alive (not named Frankie Muniz) that could bring this humble character to, not only life, but to the Mount Olympus of historic characters in cinema. That man is Brendan Fraser.
Here he is acting like a scrotum on drugs in a setting where he does not belong.
