It wasn't that long ago when Brendan Fraser's headlining films racked up hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office.Now it seems like he's hardly able to solidify a role that actually comes to fruition.After a six-year hiatus in the franchise, Fraser returned for the second sequel to The Mummy released in August 2008 and titled The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.
