Brendan Fraser was making the rounds promoting Journey to the Center of the Earth and he takes his job very seriously. Maybe just a bit too seriously. Not a lot of small talk, no “how has your summer been so far” chit chat, just right to the task at hand – the movie.
Now, Fraser is attractive and personable enough so that’s ok, I guess, and on this film in recognition of the fact that no actor has probably had so much experience with special effects as Fraser, he was accorded an Executive Producer credit for the first time, so he may feel a little added “suit-like” responsibility, but you can’t help but get the feeling that his “passion” for the project may be just slightly getting in the way of the fun. He did make one irresistible offer when he started talking about his second summer blockbuster release The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, he was willing to guarantee that if viewers didn’t love Journey he’d give them a discount on The Mummy. (Send your emails, cards and letters to…)
Fraser did finally have a bit of fun at the end of the interview, by walking around in a bright red pair of high heels in honor of Kelly Ripa’s first High Heel-a-Thon.
Nothing monumental here, just good, solid promoting.
Just keep it a little lighter here Brendan and we’ll be happy to take your word that your pics are well worth the price of admission and we won’t wait for the DVD.
