What Happened to Brendan Fraser?

By Mustafa Gatollari

If you watched movies in the '90s, especially blockbuster ones, then you've seen Brendan Fraser's cheerful mug. As a kid, I loved watching him in Encino Man over and over and over again. He was so cool that he somehow made Pauly Shore cool by association.

My older cousins and aunts didn't mind it when I'd repeatedly watch George of the Jungle, The Mummy, and Airheads. Well, maybe Airheads because of a certain raunchy couch scene, but they all had a thing for Fraser, and it wasn't until I recently saw the blockbuster king of the '90s rocking a loincloth that I realized just how jacked he was.

But like many stars who were once plastered all over movie posters for smash successes, Brendan seemed to fall off the radar several years ago. You'd be sitting around with your friends, flipping through the channels, and then, during that scene from School Ties where he's screaming in the rain, you and your friends would all ask each other: "what happened to Brendan Fraser?"
