The Laws of Nature, the Study of Violence: Taylor Sheridan Takes Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen to "Wind River" (MovieMaker Magazine)

“There’s an interesting thing about this business,” says Taylor Sheridan.

“It tells you what you’re supposed to be doing. A lot of times you don’t want to—or can’t—hear what it’s telling you. But it’s telling you.”

After 20 years in the trenches as a journeyman actor on everything from Walker, Texas Ranger, Star Trek: Enterprise, and NYPD Blue to Veronica Mars and Sons of Anarchy, Sheridan had come to see that his muse was leading him across the production floor, to the other side of the camera.

“I learned what I was—why I was only so successful as an actor: Acting wasn’t really my gift,” he says. “I was pretty good. But I wasn’t Tom Hardy or Christian Bale. If I had been Tom Hardy, someone would’ve figured that out over the course of 15 or 20 years, because that doesn’t go unnoticed. I realized that the reason I’d had any success as an actor was because I had understood what the writer was trying to say. I understood stories.”

That hard-won awareness, and the burgeoning body of work it fostered, has positioned Sheridan as one of the most exciting and passionate “new” voices in American cinema. And what a voice. The pen behind the critically acclaimed features Sicario (2015) and Hell or High Water (2016), Sheridan now completes a trilogy of the American heartland with Wind River, a commanding directorial effort, for which he took home the Un Certain Regard Best Director prize at Cannes in May. Wind River pairs Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen as a game warden and FBI agent, respectively, investigating a murder on the titular Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming, where they find a society haunted by demons of drug addiction and destitution.

Jeremy Renner Rides Solo (Men's Journal)

Administrator Warning: The following article contains strong language.

If you want to hang at Jeremy Renner’s place, you need to follow a few simple rules. The rules are displayed in a five-by-seven picture frame atop Renner’s bar, a marble topped walnut number he installed himself, stocked with enough Bulleit to give Kentucky the year off. There are five rules in all— printed in block capitals and superimposed over one of those red no smoking circles:

Do not fuck with Ava.

No social media.

No photos.

No glass by the pool.

Nothing in JR’s butt.

Ava is Renner’s four-year-old daughter, his only child, and the center of his world. The ban on photos and social media, he says, means “I didn’t invite everybody on Snapchat or Instagram.” Glass by the pool is an obvious safety hazard. As for JR’s butt? 

“That’s a joke,” Renner says, laughing. “But also, don’t put anything in my ass. I really don’t want that.”
