Featuring a bit of an alternative energy, another Twitter response to The Whale's first look is an all-caps blast of excitement that Brendan Fraser is undergoing a major transformation:

If Brendan Fraser were to win an Oscar just as his Brenaissance train is getting going, that would be such a big deal to the star and his career. Having lost his mother to cancer and suffering from depression, he’s been through a lot of hardship, making his break from Hollywood understandable. (Not to mention the overwhelming emotions that came from his financial struggles after his divorce and allegedly being groped by a member of the HFPA.) It’s exciting that Fraser is in a better place now mentally and ready to show audiences he’s still got it.

If the 53-year-old actor can get award recognition just as he’s making his way towards a comeback, it’ll show that Hollywood and fans alike are welcoming him back with open arms. Other than The Whale, Fraser's list of upcoming credits includes Brothers (from the director of Palm Springs) Behind the Curtain of the Night, and Martin Scorsese’s latest film Killers of the Flower Moon. Until these movies hit the big screen, you can presently watch his excellent work as Cliffe Steele a.k.a. Robotman in the DC Universe series Doom Patrol – which is available with your HBO Max subscription.
