Do you ever make New Year’s resolutions?
No, it sets me up for failure, but I try to make general resolutions all the time. I set an intention for something then take steps to manifest it.
What are you resolving to do at the moment?
To spend more time with my child. I love working but I’m trying to be more selective about where I shoot. Once she starts school, I don’t want to start dragging her around the planet. The last 20 films I did didn’t shoot in America. I love London but it’s too far for my little lady to travel.
How has fatherhood changed you?
It’s given me clarity. It’s changed nothing apart from going from selfishness — with my career being the most important thing — to now thinking about how to serve my child first. So I’ve gone from selfishness to selflessness.

Happy New Year, everyone!
As always, we'd like to thank everyone who has visited our site over the past year. We appreciate your support! Here is what we can expect to see from Jeremy in 2017.
First, the A&E series Knightfall will premiere this year, most likely in autumn. The series, which is a chronicle of the Knights Templar, is produced by Jeremy's production company The Combine. Jeremy might also appear in a small role, but that has not yet been confirmed.
Also coming from The Combine is a new series of graphic novels called "The Rift," which will be released by Red Comics. Jeremy is not a writer on the comic, but has helped guide the storyline.
On the film front, we expect Jeremy to spend a good part of 2017 filming Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel, which will be filmed back-to-back. Jeremy will yet again be reprising his role as Hawkeye, teaming up with the rest of the Avengers to fight the mighty Thanos.
Jeremy will also be lending his voice to the lead character Swifty the Arctic Fox in the animated film Arctic Justice: Thunder Squad, which will be released in January 2018. We expect that Jeremy will complete all of his voice work for the role in 2017, if he hasn't already. Since the film will be released so early in 2018, it is also probable that Jeremy will begin promoting the film late this year.
Finally, Jeremy will be appearing in two films released in 2017. First is Wind River, in which he will portray a big game hunter who teams up with an FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) to investigate a murder on a Native American reservation in Utah. The film will be screening at several festivals this year, so we expect it to be released in theaters some time in autumn. Second is the Will Ferrell comedy The House, in which Jeremy has a short cameo appearance. It will be released on June 30.
There are also several appearances and projects that are not definite for 2017, but possible. First, we may see Jeremy at several upcoming awards shows to support Arrival, which is expected to receive multiple nominations.
Second, there are two additional Combine productions that could begin this year: King of Heists (about the biggest bank heist in US history) and an as-yet-unnamed Doc Holliday film or TV series. We are unsure if Jeremy will appear in either project, or if he will just be acting as producer. We do know, however, that he has expressed interest in portraying Doc Holliday on screen.
Finally, it's always possible that Jeremy could release some original music in 2017. He has discussed the possibility of sharing his music, but as of now, nothing is definite. We will continue to keep our fingers crossed!
Thanks again for all your support this past year! Have a safe and happy 2017!
