While chatting about Jeremy Renner’s recovery with Extra on Tuesday (January 17th), Dillon spoke about Renner’s determination and how that’ll help him recover. “There is a rebellious quality he has which can’t help but laugh and there is an unstoppableness that is him,” Dillon explained. The co-creator then stated that Renner is a handful who is going to be “pissed off and ready to rock” when he’s better.
As previously reported, Jeremy Renner was airlifted to a nearby hospital after his snowplow reportedly rolled onto him. The actor was outside his home near Reno, Nevada clearing snow following a major storm with his family. While speaking to a family member, Renner noticed the machine suddenly began to move. As he attempted to get back into the machine’s driver’s seat, he ended up underneath the machine. Neighbors immediately rushed to help Renner and a tourniquet was applied before paramedics arrived on the scene. Renner’s rep confirmed that he had suffered from blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries.
Prior to Dillon’s interview with Extra, Jeremy Renner was released from the hospital. The actor shared the big news on Twitter. “Outside my brain fog in recovery, I was very excited to watch episode 201 with my family at home.”
Dillon also stated that Renner’s castmates and crew members are hoping he’ll be back on his feet and geared up to film Mayor of Kingstown’s third season. “He’s the captain of the most dangerous on television and he is gonna dominate,” Dillon added.
