Wait a sec ... is Brendan Fraser box-office gold?

According to Variety.com, Brendan Fraser's signed on to star in the live-action family comedy Furry Vengeance (seriously):

Fraser will play a real estate developer whose new housing subdivision pushes far into a pristine part of the Oregon wilderness, pitting the developer against a band of angry critters.

Which made me stop and wonder: When — no, how — did Brendan Fraser become a hot Hollywood commodity? I've never been able to shake the images of Fraser from Encino Man (mostly good) or Bedazzled (not so good) from my brain and chocked up his success with blockbusters such as the Mummy movies and Journey to the Center of the Earth to sheer, I dunno, luck? I certainly never credited his acting ability. Even diehard members of the Brendan Fraser Fan Club are scratching their heads about his recent roles.
