In recent years, Jeremy Renner has starred in roles that have him playing hyper-masculine men in dramas and action films. But by the looks of the set of the new, unnamed David O. Russell Project in Boston, it seems like most of the action is taking place atop the actor’s head. The 42-year-old actor tried on a new ‘do on Monday for his role in the 1970s-era movie. Usually short-haired, the Bourne Legacy star sported a dark brown bouffant.
Standing inches away from his forehead, the hair stayed put throughout the shoot in Boston, giving no signs as to whether it’s a wig or a really great blow-out that had been heavily hair-sprayed. Jeremy’s hair wasn’t the only dead giveaway as to the decade in which the star-studded film takes place. A burgundy suit accented with a pink tie acted as the Mission: Impossible star’s costume for the day. The suit’s pants flared at the bottom and opened to matching leather shoes.
Also starring in the film are Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams – none of which are being saved from the time-warp styling. The film surrounds the Abscam scandal, which was a sting operation run from the FBI’s Hauppauge, Long Island, office in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The operation initially targeted trafficking in stolen property but was converted to a public corruption investigation. The investigation ultimately led to the conviction of a United States Senator, five members of the House of Representatives, one member of the New Jersey State Senate, members of the Philadelphia City Council, and an inspector for the Immigration and Naturalization Service. It is slated for wide release on Christmas Day, following a limited December 13 release.
