As I post this, Jeff Bridges has already been declared Best Actor winner for Crazy Heart this year’s Oscars. And while I love the Dude (he was my pretend boyfriend for years!), I was rooting for Jeremy Renner, who was nominated for The Hurt Locker. As Colin Farrell gushed with kind reminisce, alongside other actors who worked with the other category’s nominees, he remarked that Renner’s career spans 20 years. And that’s mostly in bit parts and forgettable movies and a gig with 7-11 to promote their danger dogs in TV spots. I remember the first time I saw Renner’s adorable face. He was high school stoner, Dagastino, in one of my favorite brainless comedies, National Lampoon’s Senior Trip.
Enough synchronizing, let’s make with the after-hours party!
