Brendan Fraser Massive Transformation Proves How Dedicated He Is

Brendan Fraser has officially out-transformed every single Method actor you’ve ever seen in Hollywood. In his first leading role since 2013, the actor has put on hundreds of pounds for the movie Whale. Adapted from an award-winning play of the same name, Whale is about a reclusive English teacher with an obsessive overeating disorder who is trying to reconnect with his estranged daughter.

A first look of Fraser as Charlie is worth more than a thousand words. Originally released by Deadline, Fraser is unrecognizable after his dedicated body transformation.

Fraser has already won a new but prestigious award for his role from the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Given the TIFF Tribute Award weeks ahead of the film festival, Fraser follows in the footsteps of actors like Anthony Hopkins, Jessica Chastain, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Joaquin Phoenix.

“It’s gonna be like something you haven’t seen before” — Fraser

Speaking with Unilad, Fraser admitted, “It’s gonna be like something you haven’t seen before.” “That’s really all I can tell you,” he continued.

Fraser also said that costumes for his 600 lb body took a lot of extra effort. “The wardrobe and costume was extensive, seamless, cumbersome,” he said. “This is certainly far removed from anything I’ve ever done but not to be coy… I do know it’s going to make a lasting impression.”

Starring alongside Fraser will be Samantha Morton, Ty Simpkins, and Hong Chau. Whale is being adapted by Darren Aronofsky. Aronofsky is known for directing unforgettable classics like Requiem for a Dream, Pi, The Wrestler, and Black Swan. Psychological dramas are his wheelhouse, so we can only imagine that Whale is going to get deep.

Whale Is Winning Awards Before It’s Even Released

Whale will have its worldwide premier at the Venice International Film Festival in early September. Then it will show at TIFF, where it has already received at least one award. Its official release date for the public has not been announced at this time.
