Even though he’s plain of face, is terminally monotone (in all that he does) & is way out of his league in most anything he’s cast in now, Hurt Locker’s Jeremy Renner complains further of his Avengers role (Hawkeye), according to cinema blend.
Basically, he was cast as the least important (& uninteresting) character of Hawkeye, which “superhero” has either limited or no supernatural powers. What better actor, than the blatant social climber Renner to be cast in this bland character! I mean, he just exists as someone that was in an initial hit movie, which was highly over-rated & not that good. He’s an actor with a career span of about half a decade as far as the big spotlight is concerned & he’ll be forgotten after a while.
His statement on the matter, diplomatically:
I prefer [playing the good version of the character], because if we go to the evil part, or hypnotized or whatever the heck you want to call it, it’s kind of a vacancy. Not even a bad guy, because there’s not really a consciousness to him. The interesting part was being guilty about the bad things I did do when I was hypnotized. I think he’s already an interesting enough character. To really kind of take away who that character is and just have him be this sort of robot,
essentially, and have him be this minion for evil that Loki uses. Again, I could just focus on the task. I was limited, you know what I mean? I was a terminator in a way. So yeah, fun stunts. But is there any sort of emotional content or thought process? No. That doesn’t exist in that time [that he's hypnotized]. It happens to
be for most of the movie.
A nice way of saying he didn’t care for the part. I’ve always had a problem with people that don’t fit in at a party. Not that I’m exclusive/excluding or unfairly tend to not care for people without rationale; but when someone tries too hard, with little to go on, just to get ahead – I call them opportunists. It’s one thing to take advantage of opportunities & it’s another thing to be that as a personality.
The day that I no longer have to hear or see him, is the day I’m looking forward to. Obviously I won’t be seeing the latest Bourne movie that some idiot thought to cast him as lead. Bad moves, insure bad movies.
Cinema is full of actors, with talent, who are not necessarily the most beautiful people. The history of cinema is speckled with actors with no talent or looks; briefly fulfilling a niche & then sputtering out. Thus, Renner’s fate. Of course, it’s my duty to point out the boob, as he falls flat on his face.
