Jeremy Renner To Try His Hand (And Veiny Forearms) At Comedy

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | October 31, 2012 | Comments ()


My favorite festive link today is that a new story by Neil Gaiman, "Click-Clack the Rattlebag," is available on Audible as a free download. Not only is the story free (and read by Gaiman himself with his usual louche, butterscotchy brio), but Audible will donate $1 to a literacy project for each download. So do those kids and your ears a favor and check it out. Even if you've never read a word of Gaiman in the past. What do you have to lose?* (Audible)

The Awl reminded me it's Daylights Savings this weekend. I know I should post this link on Friday, but there is no way I will remember to do so. (The Awl)

There are a lot of creepy sights to behold on the internet today, so why not enjoy something harmless and gooey. Like this sexy alien life form holding what is, most likely, his next meal. (Celebitchy)

For the more straightforward creep factor, here are 10 Abandoned Amusement parks. One, of course, is the amazing Spreepark that was used so beautifully in Hanna. (Neatorama)

You don't have to be a "TMNT" fan to enjoy this amazing Krang-O-Lantern. Move over turducken and pumpple cake, we've got ourselves a pumelkin. (Laughing Squid)

Wondering what to do with your pumpkin once all the festivities are over? I mean, sure, you could let the pumelkin molder on your front porch. OR YOU COULD SHOOT IT OUT OF THE CANNON. Your choice. (Environmental Graffiti)

This was my favorite Internet reaction to the news that Disney acquired Lucasfilm yesterday.

The lovely tamatha sent me this darling comics tumblr which has a ton of Halloween-themed panels. (Liz Climo)

Oh, MAN, if I had these rad "Firefly" dog tags, my lazy costume today could have been much cooler. (QMX)

Pajiba Ten vet. Jeremy Renner will be hosting "SNL" this fall. Man I haven't seen him in a genuine comedy since Senior Trip. Unless, are we counting Hansel and Gretel? Anne Hathaway will also be hosting. Shut up haters, she's good at it. (Vulture)

Finally, if you're feeling your Inner Martha Stewart demon stirring, you might want to make these elaborate caramel apple jello shots tonight.

*Hours and hours...maybe days and days. You'll want to go back and read every word the man has ever written.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Aislinn

    Renner was pretty funny on 'The Unusuals.' But that was mostly dry wit, and he was part of an ensemble there. I hope he does well in this.

  • annie

    FYI, I'm the one that sent that picture of Cumberbatch to Kaiser, and my ovaries are so happy to have it ALL OVER my favorite sites. His hands are perfect for holding our future freackly cat-eyed babies.

  • Every time I look at that picture, I end up pregnant.

    Goddammit. I have like 20 of Jeremy Renner's kids now and I'm tired of it! Tired! You go away and take your damn sexy baby-making arms with you, Renner!

    And that may be the weirdest comment I've ever written.


    Cumberbatch usually just freaks the shit out of me, but that is one adorable photo there.

  • AG99

    That's the funniest thing I've read today, or the whole week even. You should sue Renner for child support.

  • Jezzer

    Jeremy Renner looks like he's already been doing the Kids in the Hall "crush your head" sketch.

  • Wicked

    Um, Jeremy Renner was in National Lampoon's Senior Trip. He already did some "comedy".

  • annie

    I… I must see this.

  • Puddin

    No, you really mustn't. Please believe me.

  • Wicked

    But its so horribly bad its good.


    I *remember* this! I WATCHED THIS. I don't even know why, but I did! And I NEVER made the connection and now I'm freaking out because OMG JEREMY RENNER WAS IN THAT.

  • Mrcreosote

    I spent a lot of time at Rocky Point as a high schooler (Abandoned amusement park link). It was a great place if you were a bored petulant teenager. And the accents, well those were fantastic. Not an R to be found near the ends of any words, nor declarations of love. Nikky and Vin 4EVA!! The smell of hairspray and Drakkar Noir filled the air overpowering fried dough and clamcakes. The dulcet tones of "Dude looks like a Lady" vibrated through the air, as acid washed....well eveything stretched as far as the eye could see. It was a simpler time, halcyon days of crappy salt water pools and flying rocket sled ride things where a young couple could sneak a kiss or a little over the pants action. You know, if the car was up high enough and you hadn't pissed each other off at the water pistol game.

    Alas it's all condos now, and the park is just fodder for John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band song (A local knock off of Bruce and the E Street boys). But those of us from the smallest state of a certain age (early middle age and older) will always have fond memories of this little highly valued chunk of seaside real estate, probably because of the high levels of pesticide and lead in the water supply.

  • You paint it exactly as I remember. They had the scariest drop ride ever. I don't remember what it was called, but I did it exactly once, then refused to go near the thing again. Also, don't forget Do'veen (Doreen, for those not familiar with the RI accent), who was frequently related to or dating Vinnie, but never both.

    Disney Princess - There are no bras in space.

  • Samantha Klein

    I saw the "Leia as Disney princess" joke yesterday. It was like the last little shred of my childhood being run over by a Mack truck.

    In other news, I met someone over the weekend who asked if I'd named my daughter (Lyra) after "that chick from Star Wars." Sigh.

  • Aaron Schulz

    So new star wars movies changed the original 3? like it ruined your childhood that other things were made with the same name? it took away the memory of those movies entirely? im glad my childhood cant be ruined by random non related things like a company buying another company

  • PerpetualIntern

    What about His Dark Materials?

  • googergieger

    I don't think it is exactly hating if you think Hathaway isn't that great at hosting things.

    Think it just means you have working eyes and ears.

  • Erin S

    Looks like I found my last-minute costume tonight: "Disney Princess Leia." Too bad the MIT party I went to was last weekend, I have a feeling this would have been a hit there.

  • She would need an adorable puppy/alien thing as her companion.

  • JoannaRobinson

    Disemboweled Tauntaun?

  • I was thinking more like a Baby Ewok, but I suppose a disemboweled tauntaun could count as "cuddly"...
