Photos from Jeremy's appearance at the Critics' Choice Awards have been added to the gallery.
Here is video of Jeremy presenting the award for Best Actress:
Jeremy will be a presenter at this year's Critics' Choice Awards. The ceremony will air on Sunday, December 11 at 8 PM EST/7 PM CST on A&E. Arrival has been nominated in 10 categories (including Best Picture), so hopefully it will take home some awards! Be sure to tune in!
“I don’t really watch TV. I don’t read books for entertainment, either. Look, I live in entertainment,” says Renner (right), with Handfield.
They were photographed May 24 at The Combine offices in Culver City.
Jeremy Renner and Don Handfield were struggling actors, newly arrived in Los Angeles and living off ramen, when they met at Gold's Gym in Hollywood about 20 years ago. Handfield went on to pursue a career as a writer-director-producer (including a stint at E!), while Renner stuck to acting and eventually became Oscar-nominated for The Hurt Locker and The Town as well as starring in The Bourne Legacy and the current hit Arrival.
Now they're back together at The Combine, a five-employee production company that has an overhead deal with PalmStar Media, investor Kevin Frakes' film-finance vehicle. Even though Renner appears as Hawkeye in the Avengers movies, he and his partner's goal is not to make expensive studio tentpoles but rather low- to mid-budget specialty films, along with telefilms and series. Renner, 45, cites The Shawshank Redemption, Braveheart and A Clockwork Orange among his favorite films, while Handfield, also 45, mentions television shows including Game of Thrones and Silicon Valley.
