The ‘Hawkeye’ star experienced a weather-related incident on Sunday.
Jeremy Renner has been hospitalized after an accident that took place on Sunday.
“We can confirm Jeremy is in critical but stable condition with injuries suffered after experiencing a weather-related accident while plowing snow earlier today,” a representative for the Hawkeye star told The Hollywood Reporter. “His family is with him, and he is receiving excellent care.”
On Sunday morning, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office near Reno, Nevada, was called to Renner’s residence in the area of Mt. Rose Highway, public information officer Kristin Vietti told THR.
“Upon arrival, deputies coordinated with Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District and REMSA Health to arrange for medical transport of Mr. Jeremy Renner via care flight to a local area hospital,” she continued. “Mr. Renner was the only involved party.” The major accident investigation team at the sheriff’s office is currently looking into the circumstances of the incident.
Renner, who starred as Clint Barton/Hawkeye in multiple Marvel movies as well as a Disney+ series, currently stars as Mike McLusky in Paramount+’s Mayor of Kingstown.
Since earning an Oscar nomination for Kathryn Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker in 2010, Renner has been among the more in-demand actors in Hollywood. After Hurt Locker, he co-starred in the 2010 Ben Affleck-directed crime drama, The Town, a film that earned him a second consecutive Oscar nom. A year later, he made his debut as Hawkeye in a cameo role in 2011’s Thor, and followed that up with multiple Avengers films, including Avengers: Endgame (2019), the No. 2 highest-grossing film of all time. He has continued on with Marvel, with Hawkeye debuting last year.
In between work in the Marvel universe, he has also dabbled in other franchises, appearing with Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011) and the 2015 sequel, Rogue Nation, and toplining The Bourne Legacy (2012), which billed him as a potential successor to Matt Damon, who had played the character of spy Jason Bourne in three previous features.
His Taylor Sheridan series Mayor of Kingstown follows the McLusky family, power brokers in the small fictional town of Kingstown, Michigan, where incarceration is the only industry that’s thriving. Mayor of Kingstown was renewed for a second season in February 2022, with new episodes bowing on Paramount+ on Jan. 15.
