Seriously?

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!

  5. 5

    He's a pathetic jew that couldn't act his way out of a paper bag!

    He's a good actor for sure. He was great in Gods and Monsters where he had to pair with Ian McKellan. He was easily a match for Ian.

    Brendan Fraser is an incredible and versatile actor. I just might have to plan my next visit to the Met and the Moma around this. His performance in "Cat in a Hot Tin Roof" in London was said to be remarkable and I'd love the opportunity to see him on stage. He really is a serious actor, butt when he's funny he's seriously funny. If he is playing opposite Collidge I think that chances are this is a comedy. To be honest I haven't seen Fuzzy Vengeance but have loved so many the films I've had a chance to see him in so far. Gods and Monsters may be among my favorites.
