Brendan Fraser will make his Broadway debut in the fall playing the role of Kjell in the Barrymore Theatre's production of Elling.
A drama adapted from the 2001 Norwegian movie, the story is about a pair of mental institution inmates who are released and Fraser's character is described as "a big, shaggy lump of a man who, at 40, is desperate to lose his virginity."
He'll star opposite Jennifer Coolidge and Denis O'Hare in the show, which got pretty good reviews during its London run.
Anything is better than Furry Vengeance!
