Brendan Fraser is having one hell of a career comeback, and we absolutely love to see it. The actor captured the hearts and minds of a generation in hit movies like The Mummy and George Of The Jungle, but ultimately vanished for the better part of the next two decades.
In 2018, Fraser alleged that he had been sexually assaulted by Hollywood executive Philp Berk back in 2003. This, coupled with a divorce and the death of his mother, sent the actor into a depression. He's since admitted he believes his health issues and attempts to speak out against Berk contributed to a backlash that saw him shunned from Hollywood for years.
Now, however, it's clear that Fraser is back - and his fans love him more than ever. For the past few years he's been smashing it as Robotman in DC's criminally underrated Doom Patrol, and he's since bagged a number of fantastic roles. Just recently, it was announced that he'll be joining the cast of Martin Scorsese's Apple TV movie Killers Of The Flower Moon, and Max Barbakow's Brothers.
Make no mistake: these are two high-profile projects that Fraser is no doubt going to smash, and his scores of admirers have flooded Twitter to celebrate his well-deserved rebirth.

This Brendan Fraser is my favorite Brendan Fraser. I'm also 52, heavier, grey haired and better. I can't figure out if he has a real Twitter but I hope, somewhere out there, he might feel my fan love and admiration. He's just so fucking cool. pic.twitter.com/Oxslimuc96

It's very nice Brendan Fraser is having his comeback, it's well deserved and I'm sure he's delighted to be creating again, but if I hear about anyone being even slightly mean to him on set you're all Fucking Done For

A lot of people are happy that Brendan Fraser is finally back but the truth is that he's been back since 2019 in this great little show called Doom Patrol on HBO MAX and he's quietly delivering hilarious and heartwrenching performances there. So y'all better go watch quickly. pic.twitter.com/9yXop50HQh
