We are one again in the era of Brendan Fraser, everyone, and the internet could not be more happy to welcome one of the most cherished actors of the 1990s and 2000s back into the spotlight.

Fraser starred in his first on-screen role in "Dogfight" in 1991, but gained traction through roles in bigger films throughout the 1990s, like Chester Darby in "Airheads" alongside Adam Sandler and Steve Buscemi and George in "George of the Jungle" alongside Leslie Mann. The actor's breakout role, arguably, came in 1999 when he portrayed archeologist Rick O' Connell in "The Mummy," which only helped to propel him into blockbuster films, like "The Mummy Returns," "Looney Tunes: Back in Action," and "Journey to the Centre of the Earth."

By the 2010s, however, Fraser was constantly patching up injuries sustained on set, which eventually took a toll on his ability to function as a person, let alone an actor. He told GQ in 2018, "Going to work — in between being in and out of those hospitals, that wasn't always possible." Along with a divorce and grappling with the aftermath of allegedly being sexually assaulted by the former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Fraser experienced hardships, which led to a hiatus from both work and the public eye. "I was going through things that mould and shape you in ways that you're not ready for until you go through them," he revealed to GQ.

Over the past few years, however, Fraser has made a comeback and is once again in the spotlight. He received critical acclaim for his most recent performance in Darren Aronofsky's controversial film, "The Whale," and is set to share the screen with Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro in Martin Scorsese's upcoming film "Killers of the Flower Moon." Given his ever-growing fanbase and all the buzz circulating around his latest roles, here are Brendan Fraser's best movies and TV shows through the years!
