Brendan Fraser is riding the comeback wave for his starring role in The Whale, Darren Aronofsky's awards-nominated film based on the Samuel D. Hunter play about experiencing grief and finding salvation.
The 54-year-old star plays Charlie, a reclusive English teacher who after the death of his boyfriend, gains hundreds of pounds over several years and finds himself reconnecting with his estranged daughter (portrayed by Stranger Things' Sadie Sink).
Fraser had to wear prosthetics for the role that earned him an Oscar nomination for best actor. He also won a Critics Choice Award and was nominated for a Golden Globe. Co-star Hong Chau also nabbed an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress for playing health care worker friend Liz, among other recognitions this awards season. Ty Simpkins and Samantha Morton also star in the movie.

I had to grow back into it and get back the real hunger that I had to tell stories," he said.

The Whale is still showing in select theaters for a limited time, but those who want to watch the A24 film can buy or rent it online at Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV or Vudu. A24 has not yet announced where the movie will be streaming, but the indie studio has previously inked deals with HBO Max, Showtime (where Everything Everywhere All At Once is available) and Paramount+, so it's likely that The Whale will land on one of those platforms.
