SEE IT: The Moment Ke Huy Quan Catches Up With Brendan Fraser In Critics Choice Winner’s Lounge

  • Fraser and Quan worked together in the early 90s on “Encino Man” — a teen comedy also starring Pauly Shore and Sean Astin — in which Fraser played a prehistoric man who wakes up after the glacier in which he was frozen thaws in Astin’s backyard.
  • While “Encino Man” effectively launched Fraser’s career, Quan was not so lucky. But then Fraser disappeared from the Hollywood scene as well — at least in part because he believed he was blacklisted.
  • “It was great to see him again. I love him in ‘The Whale,’” Quan reflected. “What a powerful performance.”
