Brendan Fraser may not be a household name now, but back in the 90s he was one of the most popular actors. He came on to the scene as Link, in the 1993’s Encino Man, where he played a thawed-out caveman that was thrown into that era. Additionally, he turned up in the action-adventure film The Mummy, where he showed he could both hit the comedic elements of the character while also projecting the necessary bravado reserved for those roles. It seemed that he was heading towards the top, but after a few setbacks, involving his career and personal life, he started only showing up here and there in few movies. Now, acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky has given Fraser the keys back to stardom with the lead in his new film The Whale. After all these years, does Fraser still have it?
