Brendan Fraser Stars In Oddball Irish Stick-Up Flick.

It’s hard to get a bead on Brendan Fraser.  In a way, it always has been.  At the outset of his career, he certainly seemed to be part of the latter-day Tiger Beat crowd, lumped into the Sean Astin strata of notoriety.

The only flick of his that I really remember taking a liking to was Blast from the Past, with Fraser, Alicia Silverstone, and Christopher Walken.  In that flick, Brendan plays a guy in his late teens/early twenties, who was raised in a bomb shelter by his doomsday prepper dad (Walken).   The role fit Fraser more or less like a glove, allowing him to showcase whatever that wholesome thing is that people love so much.

Almost from the very beginning of his career, Fraser has never been out of work for long.  Roles in larger films have afforded him »
