Actor Jeremy Renner, known to millions as Avengers member Hawkeye, has also starred in such critically acclaimed work as The Hurt Locker, The Arrival, and most recently Wind River. Now he tries his hand at comedy in Tag, the true story of a group of friends who take a seemingly innocuous game to the limit.
“(Tag) is rooted in truth (and) rooted in situations,” said Renner. “I think if it’s just the words that are funny, maybe I’m not your dude. Maybe if it’s sort of character traits and character work, then maybe I can take a stab at it. I just had a lot of fun doing it.”

Tag, co-starring Jon Hamm and Ed Helms, is now playing nationwide.
