Brendan Fraser Actually Didn’t Speak To The Rock At All On The Mummy Returns Set But Got Really Good At Another Acting Task


Brendan Fraser is in the midst of his Brenaissance, and much of the public couldn’t be happier to see him thrive. His heart-wrenching performance in The Whale recently won him a Critics Choice Award, and he’s already getting major Oscar buzz. While doing press for the film, he’s also been reflecting on his career, including his stint as an action star in The Mummy movies. During an interview, the George of the Jungle star revealed that he actually never worked with Dwayne Johnson in The Mummy Returns, yet that apparently helped him learn a new kind of acting.

Brendan Fraser was a guest on The Drew Barrymore Show, during which he chatted with the titular host about the Mummy franchise and more. The film series has become somewhat of a classic over the years and has attracted viewers of all ages. Fans no doubt remember that Dwayne Johnson did battle with Fraser’s Rick O’Connell as the Scorpion King in The Mummy Returns, which was the former wrestler’s acting debut. Interestingly, Fraser revealed that he never actually acted with The Rock in the film because, during their characters’ scenes, he was digitally added to the movie using CGI. Fraser said:

I happen to be really good at [acting against a tennis ball]. You know why? Because in The Mummy Returns Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was just a piece of tape on a stick.
