BRENDAN FRASER (Tom Fitzpatrick) transitions seamlessly from smart independent films to action-packed blockbusters, garnering widespread critical acclaim for his versatile, inspired performances as well as his eye for thought-provoking material. Fraser starred in and executive produced Journey to the Center of the Earth, which grossed more than $100 million domestically, and Mummy 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, which netted more than $400 million worldwide.

Fraser recently completed work on the animated feature The Nut Job, with voice acting by Will Arnett and Katherine Heigl; HairBrained, opposite Alex Wolff; and Seconds of Pleasure, alongside Christina Hendricks and Julia Stiles.

Previously, Fraser voiced Scorch Supernova in the animated film Escape from Planet Earth and starred in the Terry George heist comedy Stand Off, on which he also served as executive producer. In 2010 Fraser was seen in the family comedy Furry Vengeance and the drama Extraordinary Measures, a true story based on a couple's efforts to find a researcher who may have a cure for their children's rare genetic disorder.

The film that cemented Fraser as a major box-office draw was Stephen Sommers' 1999 action-horror adventure The Mummy, an ambitious retooling of the 1932 horror classic. In 2001 Fraser re-teamed with Sommers and co-star Rachel Weisz on sequel The Mummy Returns. Together the films grossed more than $800 million worldwide.

Fraser played memorable roles in such films as Iain Softley's Inkheart, opposite Helen Mirren, Paul Bettany, Jim Broadbent and Andy Serkis; Jieho Lee's The Air I Breathe, alongside Forest Whitaker, Andy Garcia, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Kevin Bacon; Paul Haggis' Best Picture winner Crash, as a member of an esteemed ensemble cast; Phillip Noyce's The Quiet American, based on Graham Greene's 1955 thriller of the same name; and Bill Condon's Gods and Monsters, opposite Sir Ian McKellen and Lynn Redgrave.

Additional film credits include George of the Jungle, Looney Tunes: Back in Action, Bedazzled, Monkey Bone, Blast from the Past, Dudley Do-Right, Mrs. Winterbourne, Encino Man, School Ties, With Honors, Airheads and The Scout.

On the small screen, Fraser turned heads with his critically acclaimed performance in Showtime's "The Twilight of the Golds," opposite Garry Marshall and Faye Dunaway.

Fraser's diverse theater roster includes a 2001 appearance at London's Lyric Theatre in the West End production of Tennessee Williams' "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." Directed by Tony winner Anthony Page, Fraser played the role of Brick opposite Frances O'Connor as Maggie Pollitt. The actor received high praise for his work as the anxious writer in John Patrick Shanley's "Four Dogs and a Bone" at the Geffen Playhouse, co-starring Martin Short, Parker Posey and Elizabeth Perkins. Born in Indianapolis and raised in Europe and Canada, Fraser has been dedicated to honing his craft since the age of 12. He began attending theater when his family lived in London. After completing high school at Toronto's Upper Canada College, Fraser received a B.F.A. in acting from the Actors Conservatory at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.
