When it was announced that Jeremy Renner was going to guest host Saturday Night Live, there was only one guarantee: there was going to an 'Avengers' sketch. After all, why waste the presence of one of Marvel's mightiest heroes? And more importantly, why waste the opportunity to make fun of Hawkeye, the Avenger who's only power is being really good with a bow and arrow?
The current season of 'SNL has traveled up and down the spectrum of celebrity hosts, ranging from returning greats like Anne Hathaway, to risky ventures like Daniel Craig, Bruno Mars and Louis C.K., with varying degrees of success. This Saturday's coming installment should prove pretty solid, with upcoming 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' and 'The Avengers' star Jeremy Renner! Will the intensely stoic Renner be able to tap his funnybone, or make 'SNL' a grim affair with Maroon 5? Check out the promos for your answer!
See? Everything gets better when the storm is over. In spite of all the many weather-related cancellations, earlier we learned that Louis C.K. would indeed go on to host 'SNL' this weekend with musical guest Fun., but what of future hosts? It seems the next two weeks are set as well, with returning host Anne Hathaway, and first-timer Jeremy Renner! So what musical guests will accompany them?
Jeremy Renner's acting abilities are to be commended. He was able to proceed from where Matt Damon left off in the 'Bourne' movies and give us another installment that was (semi-) worth our time. But where he failed in his portrayal of a genetically enhanced assassin was in his predictability. Case in point -- he always reverts to the same grumpy-looking facial expressions, hence he always looks like that famous "Grumpy Cat" from YouTube.

That’s ‘Bourne Legacy’ writer/director Tony Gilroy answering Time magazine’s question on the future of the franchise, and it might be a strange comment to many moviegoers. A lot of people are complaining that this new ins
'The Bourne Legacy' is a movie suffering an existential crisis. It only exists because the 'Bourne' movies – the REAL 'Bourne' movies – made a lot of dough and were generally well received by critics. I'm no Hollywood insider but my understanding is that Matt Damon either respectfully declined to do a fourth installment at any cost, or the studio saw his asking price and figured it would make more sense to try a 'Bourne' movie without him. (Damon has a nice official story, saying he'd only reprise the role with Paul Greengrass at the helm.)
