In the 90s, the name Brendan Fraser was at the height of popularity with such movies as California Man, George of the Jungle, Gods and Monsters, and more.
However, Brendan Fraser is perhaps best known for his two action movies, The Mummy and The Mummy Returns in 1999 and 2001, respectively. Believe it or not, there was another movie of the franchise released in 2008 which saw Fraser star alongside Jet Li in The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, but you’d be forgiven if you had forgotten it ever existed.

More recently, Brendan Fraser has seen somewhat of a resurgence of his Hollywood career starring in the critically acclaimed 2022 movie The Whale, and even starred as Cliffe Steel in the TV series from DC Comics, Doom Patrol. Yet, it seems that Frasher would love nothing more than to star in the movie franchise that arguably put him on the map, The Mummy. The potential return to The Mummy series is something that Fraser has pitched before now, so he’s seemingly very keen to make it happen.
During an interview with Deadline, when asked if he’d be open to starring in The Mummy once more, Fraser replied: “Gosh, I don’t know any juicy details about it. But it’s kind of an open-ended question for some time now. I’m not opposed to it. I don’t know an actor that doesn’t want a job. I don’t think I’ve been this famous and unsalaried at the same time in my professional life, so sign me up.”
Continuing the conversation of what Fraser might have planned for future roles in the world of movies and TV, he said: “I don’t really have any specific designs on what I want to do next, but I do know that at the ripe old age of 54, it should be something I care about. I’m starting to feel that there really is a sense of permanency in what we do. It really can reach people in a way that can change how they see the world.”
Whatever the future may hold for Brendan Fraser, we can’t wait to see what the beloved actor gets up to next.
