During his college days, Jeremy Renner was a little infamous among the Modesto Junior College community in California. He was known for jumping different departments of study such as Criminology, Computer Science, and Psychology. But when he took part in a drama class, Renner realized his fire for acting. He dropped out of Modesto College and moved to San Francisco. After a short stint with the American Conservatory Theater, Renner moved on to Hawaii and eventually landed in LA in 1993, determined to make it to the big screen.
But like any newcomer, Jeremy Renner’s early years in Hollywood was not easy. He started a business of renovating rundown houses in the neighborhood with his best friend Kristopher Winters. Renner was practical enough to realize that there is no red carpet for the newbies and started his debut film project, ‘Search and Destroy,’ in which he also served as co-director. Renner’s first major career breakthrough came with the indie drama ‘Dahmer.’ His stunning portrayal of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer earned him an Independent Spirit Award nomination and an agent. Renner continued his hard work to make it to the top with a variety of projects that range from big budget flicks like ‘S.W.A.T (2003),’ the sexual harassment drama ‘North Country (2005),’ indies like ‘Neo Ned (2005),’ and the dark comedy ‘Love Comes to the Executioner (2006).’
In 2008, Renner became an international sensation with the war movie ‘The Hurt Locker.’ Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, ‘The Hurt Locker’ earned Renner an Academy Award nomination. The global success of ‘The Hurt Locker’ promoted him to the A-lister bench in Hollywood and big projects like ‘The Town (2010),’ ‘Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol,’ ‘Thor (2011),’ ‘The Avengers (2012),’ ‘The Bourne Legacy (2012)’ ‘American Hustle (2013),’ ‘Kill the Messenger (2014),’ and ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)’ followed. His MCU character Hawkeye made Renner one of the most sought after stars in the contemporary Hollywood pantheon. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Jeremy Renner movie or TV show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question.
