Jeremy Renner’s 1970s pompadour & polyester suit: would you hit it?

God, these photos make me long for the 1970s to make a comeback in men’s fashion. It’s not that Jeremy Renner’s suit (he’s in character) is amazing just by itself, but on Jeremy, the whole package is kind of extraordinary. Women’s “retro” fashion is a thing, so why can’t modern dudes rock some 1970s-style poly-blend wide-leg trousers? And why is Donald Trump the only modern guy attempting this amazing hairstyle? Jeremy looks like he had a blowout and then they just sprayed a mountain of hairspray to get it to stay up in that crazy pompadour.

Anyway, these are some more photos from the Boston set of David O. Russell’s film about the 1970s Abscam scandal. It was untitled for a while, but now the film is being called American Hustle. The production shut down for a few weeks in the immediate aftermath of the Boston bombings, but they’ve gone back into production now, which is why you’ll be seeing more and more photos of Jeremy, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Amy Adams in character, wearing 1970s stuff.

We now know who Jeremy is playing too – he’s playing the then-mayor of Camden, New Jersey, Angelo Errichetti. Bale and Amy Adams play con artists working with the FBI to track down politicians and mobsters on the take. You can read the Wiki page on the Abscam scandal here.

    Much as I love the look, the answer is really, really no. Miss Jane, the pocketRen is all yours.

  2. Blenheim says:

    I love him but he does look like Grumpy cat from some angles.

  3. SusieQ2 says:

    In the second pic I swear he looks like a younger Johnny Cash.

    Those clothes so remind me of my dad in the 1970s. Memories!

    Love Renner as an actor but that’s it.

  4. DiDi says:

    I would hit it, but I’m much too old for the Renster. We all know he likes em really young, baby mama is what 25?! (not 22 like everyone thinks)And most likely too smart (once again look at baby mama)

  5. Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

    Oh my, where I. Boston are they filming?

  6. Gelda says:

    No thanks!

    Is he still living with his surrogate, I mean ex-girlfriend. Or has she, unsurprisingly, disappeared leaving the baby with Renners boyfr………sorry, roommate.

  7. Lexy says:

    Awesome! He IS the character.

  8. serena says:

    That pompadour does nothing for me, sorry Jeremy I wouldn’t hit you like that. lol

  9. Ellie66 says:

    Wow he looks just like a young Harvey Kietel. He still is cute even with the polyester suit (is this considered a leisure suit?) would I hit that?…..why yes, yes I would! ;) lol!

  10. Micki says:

    No, not really, and the 70s’ look is not the problem

  11. Hubbahun says:

    Yes yes yes, a million times yes! He could come crawling out of a swamp covered in swamp gloop and I would still hit it harder than a meteorite. So to sum up…yes. ;D

  12. Mindy says:

    I said this to a friend of mine – who is a BIG Renner fan:

    Elvis called… he wants his hair back.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m going to see this movie just for the hair and clothes. the hair/makeup team AND the costume designers deserve the either an Oscar OR a Razzie for this. Maybe BOTH.

  13. Kas says:

    From the neck up: Justin Beiber does that on purpose.

  14. Meggie says:

    Does anyone else remember seeing him on an episode of Angel? First season, prodigal son?
    Chubby lil face, not so grumpy.

  15. I Choose Me says:

    Why yes, yes I would. He can even come dressed just like that.

    Can’t wait to see this movie. It has a great cast and the wardrobe and hair styles for this movie is giving me life.

  16. EscapedConvent says:

    God, the clothes in the 70s were awful. I was just reminded of how the way the guys dressed back then was sort of automatic birth control.

  17. Jane says:

    Sweet Mother Mary of Jesus…NO!

  18. maxwell says:

    yes, yes and yes. always!
    who do i have to pay to be able to mess up that hair!

  19. gg says:

    Now he just looks like Elvis the Hobbit.
