Jeremy Renner Returns to Stunt Work After Surviving Near-Death Snow Plowing Accident in 2023

Jeremy Renner revealed during a talk show visit that he’s back to doing some stunt work after his horrific 2023 snow plowing accident that nearly killed him.

The 53-year-old actor shared a clip of an action scene from the upcoming third season of The Mayor Of Kingstown on Wednesday while promoting the Paramount+ crime thriller series on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Jimmy, 49, before showing the clip asked Jeremy if he was ‘back up to 100 percent’ after being severely injured in the January 1, 2023, accident that left him with more than 30 broken bones, a collapsed lung and pierced liver from a shattered rib.

‘I don’t know what that is. But I expect to be, like, 150 percent by maybe the end of the year,’ Jeremy said.

‘That’s what I’m talking about,’ Jimmy said.

‘And doing stunts was, like, not on the docket for me. ‘Cause I was barely kind of walking around. But, you know, I went up and just said, ”I’ll just try it.” And put on these tennis shoes, I go, ”Let me try it.” Muscle memory just kind of happened,’ Jeremy said.

‘I wasn’t confident in it, by any means, but it happened. We got it done. I think that’s even what the clip we even brought is part of that sequence, which is great,’ Jeremy said.

The clip showed Jeremy as Mike McClusky asking his associates for some brass knuckles in order to carry out some street justice.

Mike then marched over to a pair of men and jumped them from behind with a flying blow as he took them both out.

The Mayor Of Kingstown will return for its third season on June 2 on the Paramount+ streaming service.

Jeremy said the action scene marked another step in his recovery.

‘It’s moving forward. And it’s always nice to get a a little pat on the back of progress, right? And progress is great fuel to keep progressing. And my daughter, my family’s been number one in that fuel. And I hope, I’m sure that it’ll continue, ’cause I think it’s perpetual,’ Jeremy said.

Jimmy at the start of the interview got emotional as he told Jeremy that he was worried about him after learning of his accident.

‘I thought we lost you for a second,’ Jimmy said.

‘For a second, we did, yeah. But I got some duct tape, and I got all put back together, it’s all good,’ Jeremy said.

Jimmy noted that Jeremy was supposed to come on the show in January 2023, but that got derailed by his accident.

‘Well, look. He was so worried, he texted me, by the way, I remember, in the ICU, ”Dude, you’re trending”,’ Jeremy said.

‘No, I’m dying,’ Jeremy said.

‘I wanted to make you laugh. Did it make you laugh?,’ Jimmy said.

‘It did make me laugh. I wasn’t sure if you were serious, but it was so funny,’ Jeremy said.

Jeremy said it’s been ‘pretty cathartic’ and ‘quite healing’ talking about the accident.

‘I do share about it. I have shared some — about the recovery on social media and things like that,’ Jeremy said.

He retold the snowcat accident that happened when he was trying to clear a road and the 14,000-pound snow plowing machine got out of hands and was running towards his nephew.

‘So, I jump back on it, or tried to, and got caught up in the tracks. And I broke, like, 38 bones and it was brutal, dude. It was brutal,’ Jeremy said.

Jeremy said if had panicked, he would’ve died.

‘Well, there’s wonderful lessons in that, right? I mean, I could go on and on about what happened the 45 minutes being on the ice. But the real learning lessons from it. There’s so many great gifts that — being tested to your limits, right? Your physical limits, your spiritual limits, right? Emotional limits. It’s like, I won’t have a bad day for the rest of my life. It’s impossible, right? There’s that gift,’ Jeremy said.

Jeremy said taking his recovery step by step became a reminder of how we all should be looking at life.

‘If we get too stressed, or things are too difficult, or if it’s insurmountable odds, or whatever it might be, just put one foot down. And then put another foot down. And then move towards it, right?,’ he said.

Doctors rebuilt Jeremy’s rib cage with metal, and used metallic plates to put his eye socket back together. 

He also has a titanium rod and screws in his leg.
