One of the producers of Brendan Fraser’s new movie “The Legend of William Tell” has filed a lawsuit against him, claiming that the actor assaulted him on two separate occasions (legally, watching “Encino Man” does not count as assault, or I’d be suing him, too). TMZ says:
In his suit, [producer Todd] 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.
Six months later, on January 31, 2012, Moyer says Fraser struck again during a meeting about the movie at the offices of Brillstein Entertainment Partners. Fraser allegedly went nuts — screaming threats and striking Moyer in the chest at least 20 times.
Moyer said he suffered extreme mental anguish and physical pain — and wants at least $25k in damages.
For what it’s worth, Fraser was already embroiled in an ongoing lawsuit with Moyer, but in this case, he was the one doing the suing. TMZ says:
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.
What other work is Brendan Fraser passing up, exactly? Was there a sequel to “Furry Vengeance” in the works that I didn’t know about? If that’s the case, then tens of people are really gonna be disappointed. And it’s not like the $5 movie bin at Wal-Mart fills itself, you know!
