Brendan Fraser has revealed that he was tremendous hesitant throughout an ill-fated audition for the function of Superman.

Showing on The Howard Stern Present, Fraser talked about his long-ago tryout for J.J. Abrams’ proposed movie Superman: Flyby, which by no means went into manufacturing. “Everybody on the town was studying for Superman. They have been testing six or seven guys in 2002 or 2003,” stated Fraser.

“In fact it’s a life-changing, wonderful alternative, however I needed to reconcile with, ‘Okay, say you do get the job to be the Man of Metal. It’s going to be chipped in your headstone. Are you okay with that? You’ll forevermore be often known as the Man of Metal.’ There was a kind of Faustian discount that went into [the] feeling, and I believe inherently I didn’t wish to be recognized for just one factor, as a result of I prided myself on variety my complete skilled life. I’m not a one-trick pony.”

His misgivings, he allowed, possible confirmed up throughout his audition.

What Fraser termed “shenanigans and studio politics, and, most likely, inherently, (his reluctance) in my display check” value him the function.

He understood. “I believe that’s why you check — they might type of see I used to be solely there like 98% as an alternative.”
