2011 and 2012 have allowed us to get know a good looking and seemingly new actor: Jeremy Renner. Movies that introduced the majority of us to this mega-hunk include Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, The Avengers and the very recent multi-million dollar flick, The Bourne Legacy. But Renner has been acting for nearly twenty years. Just what types of films did he star in before he landed such high-paying roles? Read on to discover what other movies this up-and-comer has appeared in over the years.
National Lampoon’s Senior Trip
Released in 1995, this film is about a group of high school troublemakers that are sentenced to detention because of various hijinks. The punishment includes a project which requires the teens must use team work in order to write a letter to the President of the United States, stating what they feel are the most major problems in the modern-day education system. Surprisingly, the President adores the letter and invites the slackers to Washington, D.C. as a reward. Thus, the prank-filled the trip begins.

Starring a cast of no-namers, Fish in a Barrel is an independently produced criminal comedy. The 2001 release follows a group of gun-wielding maniacs that have just pulled off the heist of a lifetime by stealing millions of dollars worth of jewels. But when the group is confined to a New York City apartment for an extended period of time, it becomes quite obvious that no one intends to split the money evenly.
