  • 28 days ago
Brendan Fraser may have only just hit the top of his career with his critically acclaimed role in "The Whale," but the man has been working in Hollywood for 30 years. Fraser has been action heroes and cavemen and Dudley Do-Right. He made his debut in the film "School Ties" which starred several young actors who went on to good careers. And Fraser says that one of them, Matt Damon, is the reason he got the job as the lead.

"School Ties" introduced many people to not only Brendan Fraser but also Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Chris O’Donnell. Fraser recently told IMDb that his screen test for the lead role of David Greene was with Matt Damon, and he believes that his decision to follow and respond to Damon’s performance is the reason he got the job.
