Jeremy Renner


I mostly knew Jeremy Renner from his part in “The Town,” with Ben Affleck. Jeremy played a thug / bank robber with great abandon, and he has big staring eyes and a strange dominating presence, and he’s very real.



This is a big deal in the movies. You need to look real.



I heard last spring that he was playing Hawkeye in the forthcoming Avengers movie, and I smirked a little. Minor role in a major movie: who cares?



Well, he was wonderful. He was creepy and elegant and very convincing. He also bulked up amazingly, and did not look ridiculous when appearing with Iron Man and Thor and the Hulk at all; in fact, he looked like their peer.



Now he’s playing a superhuman secret agent in “The Bourne Legacy.” He still has that huge bulked-up body, and those chilly eyes. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I’m already in love with him. My friend Apollonia (who has vowed herself to Robert Pattinson) has admitted to me that she finds Jeremy attractive.



And now I discover that Jeremy, before his very successful career as an actor, was a makeup artist.



Behold this sequence from a recent episode of “Ellen”:





He is adorable.



I don’t care if he’s gay or straight. (He looks straight to me, but I’ve been wrong about these things before.)



He is a fine actor, and is also very cute, and can do makeup, and packs on muscle very nicely when necessary.



As someone online said: “It’s nice to have something to fall back on, in case Plan A fails.”



Jeremy has lots of things to fall back on.



Whatta guy!
