The considerably reclusive “The Mummy” actor — who battled depression and seemingly disappeared from the limelight after a former Hollywood Foreign Press Association president allegedly groped him in 2003 — has a number of new tasks arising.
Most notable is one by which he’s donning make-up and prosthetics to play a 600-pound man, a component he desires to verify everybody sees.
The 52-year-old is teaming up with director Darren Aronofsky for the brand new movie “The Whale,” primarily based on the play by Samuel D. Hunter.
According to the movie’s synopsis, Fraser will play a really chubby, middle-aged man named Charlie as he tries to reconnect together with his 17-year-old daughter. The two turned estranged after Charlie left his household for his homosexual lover. After his companion’s dying, Charlie then turned to binge-eating out of grief.
“It’s gonna be like something you haven’t seen before. That’s really all I can tell you,” the “Bedazzled” star recently told Unilad of the flick, which is set to be launched subsequent 12 months.
Back in June, Fraser spoke to Newsweek about “The Whale” and what followers can count on. “I’m going to be tight-lipped about it but I can tell you it’s already in the can,” he stated.
While his character required him to put on heavy make-up and synthetic prosthetics, he revealed that the method was nicely price it.
“The wardrobe and costume was extensive, seamless, cumbersome,” Fraser informed the outlet. “This is certainly far removed from anything I’ve ever done but not to be coy, I haven’t seen any of it yet but I do know it’s going to make a lasting impression.”
In August, a TikTok video of Fraser went viral by which he had a digital meet-and-greet with Lindley Key, a cosplayer. She informed the “George of the Jungle” actor that lots of his followers are nonetheless supporting him.
“There are so many people out there who love you,” Key defined to Fraser. “And we’re rooting for you, and we can’t wait to see what you do next.”
