The interview highlighted Fraser’s new project that some say is his official ‘return to the big screen.’

Fraser took Hollywood by storm in the ’90s with movies like George of the Jungle and The Mummy. His positive outlook and ability to persevere through difficult times have only helped to strengthen his dedicated fanbase. Fraser is currently cast as W.S. Hamilton in the anticipated movie, ‘Killers of the Flower Moon.’

In the interview, Fraser seems shocked and honored at the opportunity in front of him.

Some are even saying this is Fraser’s comeback. The interview has gone viral with more than 2 million likes and fans are anxiously awaiting the upcoming western starring Fraser. His revelation of being a ‘little anxious’ playing a part in a major motion picture directed by Scorsese created a buzz online and an outpouring of support from his fans.

“I’m going to work with Leo and Scorsese and Bob de Niro…I think I might be sick” – Fraser told Lindley

Lindley giggles after hearing Fraser’s humble reaction but quickly tells him, very assuredly, “You got this…you got this.” She doesn’t hesitate to let Fraser know that she isn’t the only one rallying behind him. This seems to come as a surprise to Fraser.

“Just know that the internet is so behind you…they are so supportive…there are so many people out there who love you and we’re rooting for you and we cant wait to see what you do next.” – Lindley

At this, Fraser lifts his glass of water and holds it up in recognition of the generous praise. He seems a little choked up and somewhat speechless upon hearing about his fan support. If Fraser didn’t think he was a favorite for this role, he was wrong.

Fraser responds with a simple, “Shucks ma’am.”

After watching the interview, ET Canada’s Morgan Hoffman pleaded with viewers…“Guys Brendan Fraser needs to be protected at all costs…I love him.” Luckily for Brendan Fraser, most people agree with that sentiment and can’t wait to see him in ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ coming out in 2022.

Written by New Yorker staff writer and New York Times best-selling author, David Grann, ‘Killers of the Flower Moon‘ is a story about members of the Osage tribe who were murdered under mysterious circumstances during the 1920s sparking a major F.B.I investigation involving J. Edgar Hoover – IMDb

“When I was a kid he made George of the jungle. Made me a believer. Then as a teen I thought I was too cool. Then he made the mummy. Made me believe I can be a bad ass killing Mummies. Now as an adult he made me a believer that no matter what life throws at you.. you can always make it out on top. He didn’t have to play any roles for me to learn that. He played as himself. Thank you for always being you.”Joao Flores
