SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, March 16, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Hawkeye himself will be meeting his fans at the upcoming FanX event in Salt Lake City.
Renner is best known for playing Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, “Thor,” “The Avengers,” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Renner also appears in the “Mission Impossible” films in which he stars opposite Tom Cruise.
In 2008, Renner received wide acclaim as Sergeant First Class William James in “The Hurt Locker.” Renner’s performance as a single-minded bomb specialist scored him an Academy Award nomination for best actor. His second Oscar nomination was for his performance in “The Town.”
Renner is a singer, songwriter and musician, performing with the band Sons of Ben early in his career. Scenes in “Love Comes to the Executioner” (2006), “North Country” (2005), and “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” (2007) briefly showcase Renner’s singing talents.
Despite traveling the world for film roles and, recently, as a United Nations Goodwill Peace Ambassador to raise awareness for mine-clearing efforts in Afghanistan, Renner remains close to his roots. In 2010, Modesto Junior College presented him the Distinguished Alumnus award in recognition of his body of work as an actor. He also headlined at a benefit for Modesto’s Gallo Center for the Arts in the fall of 2010.
