U.S. actor Jeremy Renner (The Bourne Legacy, The Avengers, Mission Impossible:Ghost Protocol, The Town, The Hurt Locker) will be the host of the late-night, long-running comedy show on Nov. 17, 2012. The band Maroon 5 will provide the music.
That being the case, can we expect Renner to dance around, or do his famous “Renner stretch” while the band plays Moves Like Jagger?
Not an original thought, I know, but the fans would certainly enjoy it.
Renner is on record as saying that he was a musician before he was an actor, and there are videos of him out there sitting in with various bands. When he was less recognizable, one of his favourite things was going to his neighbourhood karaoke bar. Maybe the guys in Maroon 5 will invite him to sing along?

September 30, 2012 Jeremy Renner Comedy Needs Fans To Rescue Inde Film
Jeremy Renner is getting rave reviews for his comic turn in the new film, Ingenious, but the indie film won’t make it into theaters without additional funds to pay for distribution.
So the production company has come up with an ingenious solution: get fans to pay in advance for DVDs or digital downloads of the film. With enough money, they can finish the flick and get it into theaters.
Renner was Oscar-nomated for The Hurt Locker and is known for kicking butt in action movies like The Bourne Legacy and The Avengers, but in Ingenious he’s shown to have a sense of humor too.
He plays a slick salesman who pairs up with a small time inventor after they both hit rock bottom in their personal and business lives but come up with a winning product that becomes a global hit. The film has been a huge hit on the festival circuit, despite it being shown in essentially a rough cut. The production company, Arriba Films, is using the creative projects funding platform Kickstarter to help pull in the dollars.
Producer Brian Neufang says he is “determined to prove that a good indie movie can succeed outside the Hollywood system.” The movie has currently raised $43,000 on Kickstarter and has just $5,000 to go before reaching its goal by October 13.
September 27, 2012 Renner: Avengers stunts were blast
Jeremy Renner has raved about his time in Hollywood blockbuster Avengers Assemble – because he loved the catering. The Hurt Locker star plays Hawkeye in director Joss Whedon’s action movie, which also stars Robert Downey Jr, Samuel L Jackson and Mark Ruffalo.
Jeremy revealed: “Shooting the Avengers was a blast… there’s much better food on set.”
Of the stunts and training, Jeremy admitted: “I actually didn’t have to do very much archery training because I was using CGI arrows and I was shooting CGI monsters.” He added: “It’s like learning a new language or a dance.”
Co-star Tom Hiddleston, who plays villain Loki, also expressed his joy at the film’s action scenes. He said: “I love doing the stunts and flying around on wires. At the very beginning, the first I had to do was jump off a platform, do a 30-foot leap and spear somebody in the chest.
“Joss [Whedon] wanted me to fly beyond the horizontal, so they attached a harness to me under my costume, which enabled me to dive headfirst towards the camera. I felt like I was part of a circus trapeze act! It was fantastic.”
