VIDEO: ‘Avengers’ Star Jeremy Renner Wields a Different Kind of Power in ‘Mayor of Kingstown’ Trailer
Dianne Wiest and Kyle Chandler co-star on Paramount's upcoming Taylor Sheridan seriesSeptember 1, 2021
Jeremy Renner trades in his superhero spandex for a suit and power tie in the first trailer for the Paramount drama series “Mayor of Kingstown,” debuting in November.
The Oscar-nominated “Avengers: Endgame” hero stars as Mike McLusky, a well-connected man who along with his mother Miriam (Dianne Wiest) and his brother Mitch (Kyle Chandler) call all the shots in the prison-filled town of Kingstown, Mich. “We don’t break the law, we bend it,” his character explains in the clip (above).
Created by “Yellowstone’s” Hugh Dillon and Renner’s “Wind River” writer-director Taylor Sheridan, “Mayor of Kingstown” tackles themes of systemic racism, corruption, and inequality as the McLusky family attempts to bring order and justice to a town with neither.
As Stern Show fans might remember, “Wind River” was the film Renner stopped by to promote in 2017 when he sat down with Howard for a wide-ranging interview touching upon everything from the time he got ready for the Oscars in a Starbucks bathroom to the future of his bow-wielding Marvel superhero Hawkeye, whose very own spinoff series takes aim this fall on Disney+. Check out a clip from Jeremy and Howard’s 2017 conversation (below).
“Mayor of Kingstown” debuts Nov. 14 on Paramount +.
