Jeremy Renner showed that he can shine where others have burnt out when the action star appeared on Saturday Night Live as last night's (Nov 17) host of the long-running comedy sketch show.
The Bourne Legacy star also had another ace up his sleeve when he showed us that not only can he do funny, and boy he can do funny, but he can even sing too! For the first skit of the show Renner discussed how he wishes that he could write and sing all the music for his films, before taking to a nearby piano and revealing one hell of a voice. To be honest, we're not sure if the first skit was even a skit at all, because that guy can sing!
Straight after that Renner and the SNL faithful sent up California natives, highlighting and lampooning all of their cliches a tee. Then, in something of a spin on the first sketch, Renner's next performance featured Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine flexing his acting muscles in a sketch that featured the two engaged in a never ending stalemate between two gun-toting gangsters. As Levine finally walks away from the awkward stand-off Renner then injected laughs once more by turning to the fellow stand-off participants he asked the: "Was that Adam Levine?"
Even Renner's role as Hawkeye in the Avengers wasn't safe from a send up, but the man was more than welcome to play along and proved himself a more than capable host for the night. You could say he was Bourne to do this kind of thing (sorry about that).
