Brendan Fraser Hits The Gym

Brendan Fraser hit the gym in LA yesterday, sporting an Under Armour hat and navy blue sweats.

And it’s a good thing too! He’s come a long ways from his days playing Tarzan…

Keep it up, Brendan!

Broadway Shows Are Struggling

| Filed under: T.R. KnightBroadway BabiesBrendan Fraser

This makes us sad!

Several Broadway plays are closing early due to poor sales at the box office, weak reviews, or a combination of both.

Even shows with big names aren't attracting customers. Shows such as Elling starring Brendan Fraser, La Bete starring David Hyde Pierce, and A Life in the Theatre starring T.R. Knight and Patrick Stewart, are all shutting down early.

In fact, La Bete and A Life in the Theatre had less than half-filled theaters last week. And Elling was forced to close after just one week!

The show's co-star, Tony Award-winner Denis O'Hare tweeted his disappointment:

What a world what a world…..got to be on CBS for the parade and oh, they are shutting down the play. One door shut, another window opens.

So unfortunate!

Brendan Fraser On Broadway!

brendan fraser performs on broadway

Looks like Brendan Fraser has found a perfect match in this role!

Check out the photos (below) of Fraser performing in the opening night production of Furry Vengeance Elling at Broadway's Ethel Barrymore Theatre in NYC.

We've had mixed feelings about Fraser's career choices over the years, but we're thinking this was the role he was always meant to play!

We're happy for you, Brendan! Good luck, bb!

Are U innerested in seeing Brendan Fraser perform on Broadway?

Brendan Fraser Out! The Rock In!

Ugh! The first one was a real stinko! Why the hell would they make a sequel?!

Sources are confirming that a sequel to Journey To The Center Of The Earth is ready to go into production, but there was a last miute change in the lineup.

Due to "schedule conflicts", Brendan Fraser won't be reprising his role in the flick. Instead, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will step in to take his place. Based loosely on Jules Verne's The Mysterious Island, the sequel finds The Rock joining up with Sean Anderson, played by Josh Hutcherson…again, to travel to a mysterious island in search of Anderson's grandfather.

Sounds ZzZzzz!

We want to hear more about these "schedule conflicts" keeping Brendan from making money? What could he possibly be doing?

Hmm. Maybe he is getting hair plugs! If ever a person really needed them…

Brendan Fraser Headed To Broadway

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesBrendan Fraser

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!

Why Are They Making A Sequel?

| Filed under: Film FlickersBrendan Fraser

wenn5160770bf.jpg

Director Brad Peyton is making a deal to direct the sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth, but the original's star Brendan Fraser will not be returning!

New Line and Walden Media are considering making Josh Hutcherson the lead character, who played Brendan Fraser's nephew in the first film, now that Fraser is out.

But does anyone actually want to see a sequel to this??

We don't remember the first one doing especially well — what do U think?
