Jeremy Renner Considers Flushing Oscar Cred Down Toilet with ‘Battleship’

Thursday, February 18 by

Jeremy Renner is undoubtedly on many a casting wishlist thanks to his Oscar-nominated performance in The Hurt Locker. But that doesn’t mean you have to take every role Jeremy.

The actor has confirmed he will take a role in James McTiegue’s The Raven, a movie that centers on the final days of Edgar Allan Poe as he hunts for a serial killer inspired by his stories. I don’t remember that from high school English. Appears that Ms. Fitzgerald was asleep at the wheel.

But the really distressing news is that he’s considering the lead role in Peter Berg‘s Milton Bradley-adaptation Battleship. He’s interested in the role but needs to decide if he would rather take a super-secret role for which he’s had five meetings. Trust me, Jeremy. Whatever the other role is, you want to take it over board game sailor fighting aliens. Don’t throw away your Oscar goodwill before you even win it. And make sure to use hand sanitizer after contact with Mickey Rourke. It’s the only way to prevent the spread of career suicide. (NY Times)
