Hey -- What's Brendan Fraser Doing in Avatar?
The wide-set, feline eyes. The strong jaw. The warrior posture. The floral jewelry and hand-braided ornamentation. We've been reminded of many things since being introduced to the Na'vi of James Cameron's Avatar -- animated flops, vampire dreamboats -- but it took a Livejournal commenter scanning some new images in a French cinema magazine to spot their uncanny resemblance to Encino Man and The Mummy star, Brendan Fraser.
As another commenter responded, "Oh my god. It's like a damn magic eye picture, except instead of not being unable to see a cool floating 3d image, all I see is fucking Brendan Fraser!" Of course, there was one Brendan that resembled the Na'vi more than the others: that would be Poseidon Brendan of the infamous 1997 Premiere spread that imagined him as various Greek gods. We've reunited the people of Pandora with their spiritual forefather. No need to thank us.
The original image, and the rest of the new Avatar pictures, are below.
