Brendan Fraser fans flooded a Change.org petition to get the actor back in the limelight


Remember Brendan Fraser? No? Some hints: He's the dude who played the lead in "George of the Jungle." He starred in "The Mummy" and BOTH the sequels.

Well, thanks to the weird, wonderful, worldwide web, you might be seeing more of him in the near future.

As of Thursday, Reddit has been aflame with supporters of the "Save Brendan" campaign -- a movement that includes petitions to Netflix, HBO, Starz, and Showtime to find the actor work, reports Junkee.com

Fans cited his exclusion from a new installment in "The Mummy" franchise as inspiration for the campaign. 

Fans have even begun a petition on Change.org, which as of Thursday night had 24,000 signatures -- just a few hundred shy of its 25,000 signature goal. 

The description explains that Fraser has been in financial peril due in part to having to pay a reported $900,000 annual alimony from his divorce with Afton Smith in 2007. 

We are now calling on all networks to please consider Brendan for any upcoming shows/movies that are planned.

The petition reads:

"Brendan is a much loved actor worldwide, people are shocked that he wasn't at least offered a smaller role in the new Mummy movie."

Loads of people on Twitter are excited about a potential Fraser comeback. 

Some instead chose to remember a happier time.
