What should be on the top of your playlist when you’re being splattered in the face with fake stage blood? It may not be a moment that many of us have considered; but, when you’re like Jeremy Renner and starring in the crime series, Mayor of Kingstown, these are apparently things you think about. And, according to one of Jeremy Renner’s most recent Instagram posts, Renner’s go-to tune of choice for this kind of moment is Kool & The Gang’s “Jungle Boogie.”

Honestly, it’s a great selection, as the actor gets his unusual makeup application during a Friday evening shoot.

It’s also really getting us even more geared up for the November 14 premiere of the newest Paramount + series, Mayor of Kingstown.

A series that is undoubtedly well on its way to becoming another smash-hit original series for the Paramount network.

Renner’s Bloody Teaser

We are still about two months away from the much-anticipated premiere of Renner’s new series. However, the quick video certainly gets us pumped for the premiere of Paramount’s new show.

In the video posted by Renner on his own Insta account Friday night, the actor is covered in towels; he seems relaxed as his face is sprayed with stage blood.

We can only imagine the scene he is about to shoot. It’s no doubt it’s tied to some kind of Mayor of Kingstown action! And we are counting down the days until November 14!

“My Friday Night can only get better,” Jeremy Renner writes in the Instagram post. “I hope you all have a killer weekend.”

All of this is everything we love to see in a post. A little Mayor of Kingstown teaser; a touch of Kool & the Gang…and a little bit of wordplay.

The upcoming crime thriller series starring Jeremy Renner comes to us from Yellowstone creator, Taylor Sheridan; and Yellowstone actor, Hugh Dillon.
