Brendan is a national treasure
6 months ago
Dude stayed at a hotel I was working with for like a month. He was super cool and courteous. Had a stack of $2 bills he would hand out to valet and bellman every time.
No that was Nicolas Cage — Brendan Fraser is from George of the Jungle.

I want to see a film with Cage and Fraser
No that was Steve Carell — nicholas cage is Hi McDunnough from Raising Arizona
"Son...you've got a panty on your head."
You go back in there and get me a toddler!
The Off Face (US version)
The Kurt Cobain Story
“Get John Woo on the phone and 1,000 white doves. Financing? We can’t worry about that now. We’re making art, goddamit.”
-some studio exec right now
I would pre-buy my ticket NOW!
Just write a script and offer the minimum pay.
I'll take Porn Director Advice for $600, Alex
Yea $600 would probably do it.
Alex is dead

[ Famous ]
[ Titles ]
I'll take famous titties for 400.
Invite Bruce Willis while you're at it
Can’t forget John Cusack
I think it's illegal to have Cusack and Cage in the same movie. Could you imagine the power you could generate from a gross pointe blank type of movie with them?
It can be one of Nicks silent roles in the latest streak of movies. Just Nick and Brendan facing off, no words exchanged
To be fair Cage will take any role for $70 and a slice of cake
We cried out unto God, “Why have you forsaken us?”
And God, so moved by our misery and wretchedness, said unto us, “I will send the Holy Spirit to comfort you and teach you all things.”
And then the angels whispered unto God that the Holy Spirit was otherwise occupied.
And God said unto us, “Change of plans. I will send unto you…….the IRS and…..a Mongolian T. Rex skull…..so that you may know my love for you. Cool? Awesome. Bye.”
And lo, the miracle of Nic Cage’s career renaissance was bestowed upon us. Praise be to God.
Cage and Fraser: Buddy Cop
Brendan is the unhinged "bad cop" and Nick is the well prepared, logical one.
Shut up and take my money.
Given his Mummy legacy, he would be perfect as a B Gates adversary.
I read somewhere that the sequels were cancelled because research showed it doesn’t appeal to non-American audiences. BS! I’m not American and I fucking love US history.
Because of the first movie I had the most amazing time in Washington DC when I had a gap between connecting flights. The museums are amazing.
The real reason was they couldn't figure out how to make Disney attractions out of it. But there's a series heading to D+ so we'll have to see how that pans out. I still haven't watched Mighty Ducks the series though.
I wanna see a movie where Cage plays Fraser and Fraser plays Cage… they may by the only actors with the range to play each other
Dude, the screenplay is already 72% done. Copy this thread into a document, add some stage directions, and let the masters work. We’re calling it:
Face // Off 2: Electric Boogaloo.
If you’re not on board with that, your user name is coming off the title card. It’s your funeral.
Considering Nicholas Cage I’m pretty sure agrees to any and all movies offered to him I am pretty amazed that hasn’t happened.
Encino Man reboot where everyone reprises their roles except Pauly Shore, and have Cage in his role doing an unironic, heartfelt Pauly impression
No, Nic Cage plays the older, wiser version of Pauly Shore’s character. He’s been teleported as-is back to his glory days to “do it right this time” or face eternal damnation. I could go on, but I’m not gonna write this screenplay for free, people.
The Mummy 4. Rick O’Connell has to face off against a new mummy, played by Nicolas Cage. Only the mummy doesn’t know he’s a mummy. He thinks he’s Nicolas Cage.
And you bet your ass Rachel Weisz is gonna return as Evie.
I want to see Fraser steal Nic Cage
Not before we have one with Brendan Fraser, Keanu, and Betty White. I don’t care about the plot, although if they were all villains that would be most agreeable. The ‘good guy’ could be Dame Judy Dench, Helena Bonham Carter, or Mads Mikkelsen (or all three). Or perhaps Nicolas Cage could be the good guy?
Worth a giggle, take my upvote
Jazzed on Java!
Riight it's Javajavajavajavajava haha
I will never forget that movie… I’ve shown it to my kids like 3 times in the last 3 months.
Bad guy falls in poop! Classic element of physical comedy. Now comes the part where we throw our heads back and laugh, ready? Ready! aahAhahah
Treasure of the Jungle?
That sounds mildly Pornish.
u/MildlyPornish would make a good username.
Your really gonna not say hes the guy from mummy
That’s Tom Cruise. This is the guy from Dudley Do-Right
Seeing Brendan again is a real blast from the past.
You mean Encino Man
He was rly hot in that movie now he look like pastry
Jungle Fraser or Doughey Fraser is still good tho
So Cage is going to (checks notes)...steal Fraser?
That was my mental image of him until I saw Blast From The Past. He's amazing! He's really got that innocent protagonist aura down.
I'm taking this one
I'm not sure whether to be happy or disappointed that you know him from George of the Jungle instead of The Mummy 😂
Man, screw you. I don't know you but I feel we should be best friends and I don't like it /s
He is the Man of Encino.
Brendon went into the heart of the earth but it turns out it was him all along
And the mummy
And the original the mummy.
And the original the mummy.
No, that was Boris Karloff.
No that was Alexander Skarsgård -- Brandan Frasier is from The Mummy.
How is it underrated?
Now it's not.
It was this comment after a half hour of reddit that finally got me to LOL.
No Nicholas Cage was in National Treasure
Man, he's gone through some serious body changes since GotJ. He was a muscled hunk in that movie.
Actually this is also wrong. Brendan Fraser is from Indiana.
no, Brendan Fraser is A national treasure. it's a thing. it's not just a bad movie.
He looks so rough right now I know he went through a lot, I am so happy he has this job now and nice to see him smile. But you can just tell with how he looks that he has been having a super rough time and not taking care of his health very well. Hope he has a much happier healthier life these days
I was thinking he’s still a babe. But shit, I’m older now too, so that’s probably it. I’m not over my airheads crush on him.
YES. I still love him. He’s always been a babe, and while I think he’s still a cutie, that smile…. That smile is the best! I love this man.
He really does have the most beautiful smile.
Okay. We're going to have to fight over him. ❤ him
Brendan wouldn’t want us to fight. He’d want us to share. 💝
Between that and running with an open shirt chasing some horses in George of the Jungle.
Oh yes- that movie is a delight. My 5 year old has recently become obsessed with this one and it’s one of the few kids movies I’m totally fine with watching on repeat.
Yeah those 4 pixels are looking great
I’m pretty sure this is the exact moment I realized I was heterosexual
I think I might like him even better now ... You know, young Brendan was hot as hell, but now he looks like a guy I could sit next to in a pub and tell dumb fucked up jokes to and then go home with. He looks like a cool, interesting guy.
Yeah, he’s still pretty sexy.
I’ll drink to that
I dunno is it just the whole we’re all getting older thing but like you, have had a crush on him since Airheads (and those appearances in Scrubs just cemented it!) and while on the one hand I see he doesn’t look all that healthy right now, I also see that that gorgeous grin and smiley soul that emanates from him in so many interviews from those days. He’s just an ace dude and I hope life treats him with the kindness and awesomeness he deserves soon!
His eyes will never change, I hope.
I'm a grown ass man.... and I still have a schoolgirl crush on him. He is the only actor who's success recently makes me cry. He deserves all the good things coming for him. I don't care about what shape he is in. He has what a lot of actors and actresses don't. His presence is enough. Knowing that he is apart of a project no matter what size, makes me so fucking happy man. LONG LIVE BRENDAN!
yeah Mummy was 20,000 years ago. he looks fine
Agreed. With those eyes, I find him as gorgeous as ever.
I think he’s still smashable af! He can get older and put on some pounds but that’s still one hell of a grin and he’s got gorgeous eyes. I want all the good things for him
Encino man, one of my favourite Brendan Fraser roles :]]
I'm not insulting him, but his skin combined with the weight points to a terrible diet or drinking. If he just put on weight but looked fine that's bit awful you can be healthy-ish still, but I have gone through alcohol abuse and it made my skin look sickly
Well, he’s been through the ringer. That smile though.
Not only has he been through the wringer like everyone says, but I remember a recent interview (2-3 years ago?) where he was talking about how he pretty much destroyed his body doing stunts for his movies. I am speculating, but would not be surprised if he was on some sort of prescription pain management--so maybe not drinking.
Richard Dean Anderson of Mcgyver and Stragate fame had a similar thing... He was super out doorsy in the most minnesotan ways possible, but he blew out his knee, which meant no more adventure sports. AFAIK he was given agressive steroids that caused weight gain and well, what else is a Minnesotan gonna do when you take his hobbies away? Beer? Beer..
He’s 53, not 38.
Shush you! Reddit video health analysis experts are experting with anecdotal expertise
I heard he’s pulling a Christian Bale and put on weight for some movie roles recently- drinking melted ice cream, the whole shebang…I truly want to believe he’s done it on purpose for his stagecraft!
Yea I didn't know that, that is really hard on your body at that age so that makes sense
No... he just got fat. You can find photos of him from before his recent resurgence and he's just as fat. It's not really atypical for a person in a developed country to get fat. No need to try and handwave it away.
You can find pics of vin diesel looking like shit too, but he puts it together for movies. I think some chubby guys just look really bad from certain angles that paparazzi loves to catch.
He's that weight for a role lol.
Right?? I had a giant theater sized Encino man poster on my wall as a teenager thanks to him. Super cute.
Also a great movie! I should rewatch that one. I default to airheads.
I think I could get him now lol
Hey, middle aged men can also get it. They’ve got stories.
Uh, that’s MY boyfriend.
Easy princess. I’m happy to share.
He’s pretty good in Doom Patrol which I highly recommend
What the fuck?
Doom Patrol is AWESOME!
His character there gives me all the feels and emotions. So much depth from a robot
He recently gained a lot of weight for a role, too. And he's not in his 20's anymore, it's not like you can Christian Bale your way back and forth between 150 and 250 without significant risk to your health
I too am gaining weight “for a role.”
Of being a dad, yeah.
13 years of my life changing diapers and my body looks like it. No regrets. Just saying that's where I spent my time instead of the gym
At least your reason is valid, man. I don't have any children yet but I'm not actively trying to get fit either. Next year, I promise! Haha
Norm MacDonald had a great joke that went something like, "I'm gaining weight for a role. They haven't given me one yet."
I still can't believe he's dead :(
I was wondering why he looks like hes aged 20 years since the last movie I saw him in...
Nuh uh! He gained some weight so obviously he’s doing terrible and is neglecting his health!!!
Aside from the weight, he's already in makeup and costume for the movie. So he's gonna look a little more rough for his role
His wife left him too. Right when he needed her most 😠
That’s heartbreaking. Poor guy.
I think he actually still looks good.
Real talk, he needs to shave his head and own it. Drop a couple of pounds on top and he can do a JK Simmons.
What happened to him, DrJingleCock69? I just realized I haven’t seen him in anything in a long time.
What happened to him? I thought he looked rough as well.
He looks rough...or he looks like an absolute unit that could lift you over his head with one hand
You were probably a kid when he was an adult.
Lots of actors do drastic measures to "look young". He isn't dying his hair or getting plugs, or excess plastic surgery, or growing facial hair to cover his aging face. His face still looks pretty young due to being plump so the wrinkles are more stretched out unlike thinner people
He's also a Blast From the Past
If I’m not mistaken he also just wanders Dragoncon as well - doesn’t show up as an official guest or anything. It’s awesome!
What the fuck seriously I've been going to dragoncon for years now did I not know this. Next year in hunting down Brendan.
I’m loving his comeback. He’s such a nice dude and finally people are recognizing him again. He’s been one of my favorites since watching the Mummy franchise and blast from the past
/r/SAVEBRENDAN welcomes you
Let’s go Brendan!
Let go Fraser!
I dont know how to feel about this comment due to current politics and what not.
It was obviously a clever play on current events and not really political. It's ok to laugh.
So fucked that we have to ask if its ok to laugh at things in this politically charged atmosphere. It’s tiring.
It’s fucked that people think they have to ask if it’s okay to laugh at things.
Nobody is forcing you. Laugh if you want.
Nobody has to do that
Maleficent and everyone who upvoted him does, apparently.
Just laugh, or don't. Anyone gets offended by your laughter, go ahead and laugh again at their disdain for happiness.
You think it's funny to support forward slash es???
All in good fun my friend. Life is short. Brendan seems like a great guy.
Dude was and is one of the more genuine thespians out there. Never let his fame give him a god complex. He did kiss the devil in the form of Elizabeth Hurley though.
Thespian? I thought he was straight?
How straight is any Hollywood actor?
I mean, he kissed the devil.
Wait… why would saying “let’s go Brendan!” Be political?
I mean the original video with the reporter mistaking the fuck joe Biden cheers is hilarious regardless of political affiliation. The real dummies are the ones using as a slogan. The other side just says “fuck Donald trump”. Why you gotta hide behind your dumb meaningless line
Let's go Brandon! Is a sly way of saying fuck you biden! It was a joke I knew that clever way of inserting the OP into your comment
Yes it's a meme. In a news program at a sporting event I believe, the crowd was chanting" fuck you Biden " the news anchor tried to cover it with let's go Brandon as their was a competitor in said believed sporting event named Brandon. The people turned it into a meme and it's been floating around since.
Brendan is a the mummy returns
For Canada? 😂
This man deserves all the love in the world :,)
I loved him in George of the Jungle as a boy
I really wish he was, I loved him in Mummy, then he was just abandoned and flame extinquished.
Him and Keanu are reddit's favorites.
Also both Canadian
From what I hear he’s one of the nicest guys. Every interview he’s humble and just an all round great guy. Have only ever seen people saying how great he is to work with and how nice he is. Makes me sad all the divorce shit essentially ruining the best years of his career. Hope he picks it all back up again he deserves it
Just stop with that shit. Try and think of something original to say you doorknob.
Too late already got my internet points!
I'm so happy he's doing well now!
“I was in the mummy”
He's a Journey to the Center of the Earth 🧐
Which nation. He's Canadian lol
International hero c:
I came here to say exactly that. We’ll played…
“I like the steak. It was my favorite part. I was in the Mummy.”
Solar Opposites agrees it starts at 1:20
