The role marks his return to the limelight, and the “The Mummy” star has also been cast in the upcoming comedy, Brothers.
When Key congratulated him on the new film, Fraser revealed he was feeling “little anxious.”
“I might be sick,” Fraser joked, as he pretended to bite his nails.
“You got this,” Key told Fraser and informed him just how loved he was by his fans online.
“Just know that the internet is so behind you. We’re so supportive. There’s so many people out there who love you, and we’re rooting for you, and we can’t wait to see what you do next.”
The kind words appeared to hit Fraser in the feels, as he fought back the tears and drank some water to regain his composure before replying modestly: “Shucks, ma’am” and tipping his cowboy hat.

Key was right about Fraser’s dedicated fan base, as the clip quickly went viral and now over 460,000 on TikTok.
She told Insider that it is down to Fraser’s “extremely loyal fan base and the sheer amount of people who want to see him succeed” that caused the video to go viral.
Fans have shared their love for Fraser in the comments of the TikTok video.
One person wrote: “Omg I love this man so much.”
“I got choked up when he got choked up,” another person said.
Someone else added: “He must be protected at all costs.”
“Omg I teared up, thank you for speaking for the internet,” a fourth person commented.
“Fraser was such a huge part of our childhoods,” Key told the same publication. “His movies were, and still are, loved by so many out there. And after all he has been through these past years, his fans are thrilled to see him happy and back to work.”
Fraser is known for his roles in ‘90s blockbusters “The Mummy”, “George of the Jungle,” and “Bedazzled” though he spent the past decade out of the spotlight.
The 52-year-old revealed in a GQ interview that he spent several years in and out of the hospital due to the stunts he has done over the years and ended up having to get a partial knee replacement, a laminectomy and vocal cord surgery.
He later appeared in TV shows such as The Affair” and “Doom Patrol” and in Steven Soderbergh’s crime thriller “No Sudden Move.”
