Both the actors, Brendan Fraser and Austin Butler have done a terrific job in portraying their characters in their respective films, The Whale and Elvis. The former is a renowned artist who was one of the most demanded actors in the 90s and 00s. Despite the immense glamour and fame, he had to deal with some unfortunate events which eventually pushed him towards depression.
His physical and mental well-being continued to deteriorate however he eventually overcame all the obstacles and returned to the industry gaining much appreciation for his role in the film, The Whale.
The 54-year-old veteran actor went through an extremely difficult transformation in which he had to wear 300 pounds of prosthetics to play an obese man for his character. No matter how much uncomfortable he felt while being in such heavy prosthetics, he eventually pulled off his character marvelously which earned him an Oscar nomination. The film has already bagged a Critics Choice and SAG Award earlier this year which is why he is quite a great competitor for the latter.
