Seamlessly transitioning from smart, independent films to action-packed blockbusters, BRENDAN FRASER continues to garner widespread critical acclaim for his versatile, inspired performances and a keen eye for selecting thought-provoking material. With several exciting projects on the horizon, 2022 promises to be a big year for Fraser.
