You’re going to see a lot of Jeremy Renner, since he’s got two new high-profile television projects streaming simultaneously. Renner stars in Mayor of Kingstown as the head of a family that controls most of the power and money in a small town in Michigan. Hawkeye, of course, has him reprising the role he’s played in several of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Even when he was playing a superhero, his alter ego was a kind of “everyman,” yet his characters always possess an inner strength that belies their ordinary nature, and Renner says that’s a character trait that he personally got from his own upbringing.
