If Segal can make millions a year on DVD releases surely Fraser can as well, and he still has a shot at theatrical releases. Granted his latest release is voice work in Escape from Planet Earth and his last theatrical release was 2010’s Furry Vengeance. If we goes into the courtroom with that then I’m sure any judge or jury will agree the guy can’t afford a million a year.
It’s crazy that these Hollywood actors can spend so much, I understand they have a certain lifestyle but with how many of these guys are going broke they need to learn to manage their finances a little better. Fraser should take the lead from Nicolas Cage and just start whoring himself out for any old role, or maybe that’s exactly what he’s trying to avoid. Do I smell a fourth Mummy in the works? Universal, get ’em whiles he’s cheap!
