15 Actors Who Desperately Need A Hit

15. Brendan Fraser

Universal

Once upon a time Brendan Fraser was the bad*ss lead of the Mummy franchise, and in 2004 appeared as part of the ensemble in Best Picture Oscar winner Crash.

Post-Mummy, however, things haven't been so great, and the only film he's appeared in since 2008 to be a major financial success is 2014's animation The Nut Job, which naturally wasn't sold on the presence of him or any other actor.

With Fraser's rough alimony payments to his ex-wife and current status as an Internet meme, it's safe to say that he needs that big, memorable supporting role, probably in a comedy film, to make everyone remember why they loved this guy in the first place. Perhaps then studios might be prepared to offer him starring work once again.
