Jeremy Renner Gets Goofy With Kenan Thompson In SNL Promos

We know Jeremy Renner is very capable of playing up the intensity, but how is he at being funny? We'll see when he hosts Saturday Night Live this weekend. And you can get a taste of the Bourne Legacy star's sense of humor in these new promos for the episode.

In 2012, Renner played Aaron Cross in The Bourne Legacy and Hawkeye in The Avengers. Next year, we have Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters to look forward to, and that's just one of a few projects Renner has in the works. This Saturday night, he'll make his hosting debut on SNL, which should give us the opportunity to get to see the lighter side of Renner. We see a little of that in the promos below, which get progressively goofy as stands in a bar with SNL regular Kenan Thompson.

I especially like the cosplay at the end. It really demonstrates Renner's range and wig compatibility. It'll be great to see what he brings to the episode and how the sketch comedy series uses him. Seeing the spy gag in the promo makes me wonder if they'll do a Bourne sketch. We'll have to wait and see! And we also have Maroon 5 as the musical guest to look forward to.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
