Brendan Fraser has risen to fame once again after a long time and he’s back with a bang, giving an absolutely stunning performance in The Whale, getting him so much praise that fans wish for him to get an Oscar for his role. Even his upcoming movie, Killer of the Flower Moon has made the audience jump in anticipation as to what the actor will bring next.
Another actor who may not be recognized at first glance and who also made a similar comeback to Fraser would be Everything Everywhere All At Once actor Ke Huy Quan. When The Mummy star spotted him in the movie, he was more than happy to see his former co-star in such a highly regarded movie.
Brendan Fraser Was Relating To Ke Huy Quan When He Saw Everything Everywhere All At Once
Among the few exceptional movies that were released in 2022 The Whale and Everything Everywhere All At Once were on top of almost everyone’s list. However, what may have slipped many fans’ eyes is that the two movies had one thing in common. They both had actors who starred in Encino Man. The comedy movie released in 1992 included both Brendan Fraser and Ke Huy Quan and when the former recognized the latter in the film starring Michelle Yeoh, he believed that the two had parallel comeback stories.
“His name wasn’t Ke in the days that I knew him, for reasons we just don’t abide by any longer. Some agent told him that no one would understand [the name] or whatever. We don’t get to do that anymore. He is who he is. The journey that he’s taken to come to this place has given him, I think, the role of his lifetime, and he’s given the performance of his lifetime, and in many ways, I, like him, feel the same way. We gave it everything we had. We’re both like, ‘We’re still here, man! We’re still here.'”
It could very easily be said that a movie quite often quoted as the real Multiverse of Madness really did connect two lives.
Brendan Fraser And Ke Huy Quan Return To Fame After A Long Time
Ke Huy Quan took a thirty-six-year-long break and is most prominently known for his work in Indiana Jones. The actor will also be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Loki’s second season.
Brendan Fraser, even though not acting as frequently, was still under the spotlight somewhat. However, his work in The Whale has given him a skyrocketing rise in industry. Both the actors have risen fairly high into fame with their recent roles, granting them both an opportunity to perhaps win Oscars.
