For too long, notorious Hollywood tough guy Brendan Fraser has been leading with his fists, punching first and asking questions later. This knuckle-dragging philistine has been playing by his own rules for far too long, but finally, one movie producer has had the courage to stand up and say “no.”
[From TMZ, inexplicable ellipses theirs] Brendan Fraser unleashed TWO physical attacks on one of the producers of a movie he is set to star in … so says the producer who is now suing the movie star … TMZ has learned.
The man who filed the suit is Todd Moyer — one of the producers on the movie “The Legend of William Tell” … a movie that has been in the works since 2011.
Remember when Brendan Fraser was going to play William Tell? I’ll never forget it, because reader Stinky Peet made us this gif:
Anyway, let’s hear what exactly this violent sociopath did. BRENDAN FRASER MUST BE STOPPED!
In his suit, Moyer claims he was hanging out at the Hilton Hotel in Indianapolis on July 27, 2011 … when an “intoxicated” Brendan Fraser began to “physically push, verbally threaten and poke [Moyer] in the chest repeatedly.” Moyer doesn’t specify what led to the alleged attack.
I’m glad they specified that the push was physical, because if he had mentally pushed him, this might be an interesting story, instead of just two sissies having a hissy fit over a dumb movie.
But six months later … on January 31, 2012 … Moyer says Fraser struck again — this time during a meeting about the movie at the offices of Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
According to Moyer, Fraser demanded that Moyer hire a producer named Charlotte Huggins to work on “Tell” … but Moyer refused. That’s when Fraser allegedly went nuts — screaming threats and striking Moyer in the chest at least 20 times.
Oh Jesus. They don’t specify what kind of “striking” Fraser did to his chest, and since they’ve been blowing everything out of proportion so far, I’m going to have to assume it was poking again. DON’T POKE ME, BRO! MY DAD’S A LAWYER! Personally, I like to imagine Brendan Fraser pinning Moyer’s arms down, then tapping on his chest with his index finger Chinese-torture-style, asking, “Who likes Huggins! Whoooo likes Huggins! Just say you like Huggins and I’ll stop!”
Moyer said he suffered extreme mental anguish and physical pain — and wants at least $25k in damages. Fun Fact — Fraser sued Moyer back in May … claiming Moyer has bungled the film … causing delays that forced Fraser to pass up other work. Fraser is demanding more than $3 million in damages. That case is still ongoing.
Call me old fashioned, but suing claiming “mental anguish” over getting poked in the chest should mean that your friends all get to call you “bitch boy” for the rest of the year. Sorry, you want to fight like kids on the playground? Playground rules apply. If I’m the judge, I order them to settle this through Polish boxing.
God, I should be the judge.
