Early Roles That Mission: Impossible Actors Would Like You To Forget About

Jeremy Renner in National Lampoon's Senior Trip

Quote:
Good news for the Avengers' Hawkeye: most people have forgotten about this one. But we're here to happily remind everyone that "Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol" and "Rogue Nation" star Jeremy Renner was once known for playing lovable goofballs long before he was a major multi-franchise action hero. In the 1995 teen comedy "National Lampoon's Senior Trip," the 24-year-old actor played high schooler Mark D'Agostino (nickname "Dags"), who goes on a field trip to Washington D.C to meet with the President of the United States after his class is forced to write a letter to the White House as punishment for their childish pranks.

The film boasts a surprisingly decent cast that, in addition to Renner, also includes former "Max Headroom" star Matt Frewer, hippie icon Tommy Chong as a lazy bus driver, and "Kids in the Hall" alum Kevin McDonald as a teen obsessed with "Star Trek." But even as a lowbrow comedy with some good actors it doesn't get very many laughs, and Renner is almost unrecognizable as a long-haired, dim-witted high school slacker.

More than a decade after "National Lampoon's Animal House" set the standard for these kinds of films, and a few years before the '90s hit "American Pie," a film Renner would like us all to forget got sandwiched in between and was promptly smoked out. It was both a bomb in theaters and a flatline with critics, with a whopping 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.

9 Harsh Realities Of Rewatching The Jason Bourne Films

Quote:
4. Jeremy Renner Was Never Going To Be Accepted Like Matt Damon

The Bourne Legacy was not as well-received by audiences as previous franchise installments, despite being a competently-executed film in its own right that delivers strong performances. It was the weakest-performing film of the franchise for one simple reason: Jeremy Renner is not Matt Damon.

Audiences had developed a strong affinity for Damon's portrayal of Bourne, and many fans were simply less receptive to a next-generation-type role or the perception of Damon being replaced – even by an actor of Renner's caliber. Renner delivered a fine performance, but it didn't connect with audiences on the same level as Damon's.
