Brandon Fraser: Most Overrated Hollywood Actor?

It may be that Brandon Fraser is the most overrated actor in Hollywood these days, but he does seem to get regular work. Fraser is consistent with bringing his jolly awkwardness into every movie role he plays but just can’t seem to get into any other character role. Brandon Fraser does have an appealing charisma though for the younger crowd, in films like George of the Jungle (1997), Dudley Do-Right (1999) and Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003).

He did have some sex appeal in the three-part Mummy film series (1999, 2001, and 2008), although he has had some appeal with the ladies, it is just not enough to get an actor to the top of the movie industry. Brandon is known to have some big friends in Hollywood such as producers and directors which have definitely assisted him in his career, having him play roles in some big budget films. With his silly magnetism Fraser seems to attract the younger generation, although he has enjoyed popularity in that niche audience, he is consistently seen missing the mark in his roles to be regarded as a distinguished actor.

Brandon had tried his hand at stage acting in the Broadway comedy entitled “Elling”, which had played at the Barrymore Theater for only 9 regular performances before being canceled four months earlier than scheduled by the show’s producers. A review on “Elling” by Everything I Know I Learned From Musicals said about Fraser, “He’s all surface bluster, with no apparent internal motivation.”

I’m not saying that Brandon Fraser is a bad guy just that he is a bad actor. He does have another quality that has kept him in the movie industry for this long, and that is his likeable charisma. So, how much longer will roles be given to Mr. Fraser? No one knows but a few director friends of his, but without any big crowds at the box office his acting days may be numbered.
