Biography

After years of struggle, actor Jeremy Renner earned a reputation as a reliable lead in dark-themed dramas, thanks initially to his stellar portrayal of infamous serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in the biopic, "Dahmer" (2002). With no qualms about taking a turn to the dark side, Renner added to his esteem with acclaimed indie turns as a white supremacist in "Neo Ned" (2005) and a sexist boss in "North Country" (2005). He tackled more complex roles with sterling performances as a former L.A.P.D. cop in "S.W.A.T." (2003) and as the intimidating Wood Hite, cousin to Frank and Jesse James, in "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" (2007). Though a recognizable face, Renner finally broke through as a household name following his critically lauded turn as an on-edge bomb disposal expert operating in the Oscar-winning Iraq War thriller, "The Hurt Locker" (2009). From there, he earned himself an Oscar nomination with a finely tuned turn as a career criminal in Ben Affleck's widely hailed crime drama, "The Town" (2010), which soon led to roles in blockbuster movies like "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" (2011), "The Avengers" (2011) and "The Bourne Legacy" (2012). With each critical nod, Renner secured a firmer footing in Hollywood as a recognizable and dependable face in a variety of feature films.
