Brendan Fraser hasn’t had what one might call a ‘smooth-sailing career’. The actor peaked in the late 90s and early 2000s with mega-hits like George of the Jungle and The Mummy franchise. But then his career almost hit a roadblock due to several factors. The most prominent of them being the allegations that he made against a certain Hollywood executive – Philip Berk, whom he accused of s*xually assaulting him in 2003. He got reportedly blacklisted from Hollywood after he made the heinous accusations. And his career after that had been practically squat.
2022’s The Whale was in many ways Fraser’s comeback and it has also brought him into the race for the Oscars. He has got fans rooting for him from all sides. But even in his bad times, he had a few friends from the industry by his side, who continue to remain his cheerleaders. His Scrubs costar Zach Braff being one of them.
