On January 1, 2023, the Hollywood star Jeremy Remner, who is best known for playing Hawkeye in the Marvel movies, was involved in an incredibly serious snowplow accident that left him with 38 broken bones and requiring multiple surgeries to repair his rib cage, face and legs.

Now, Renner’s Mayor of Kingstown co-star Michael Beach is speaking out to claim that the 53 year-old actor “actually died” after his accident.

Renner ‘Actually Died’

On New Year’s Day in 2023, Renner was run over by his own seven-ton Pistenbully snow at his home near Lake Tahoe in Nevada. Renner’s accident was so severe that doctors had to insert metal plates into his torso to stabilize his ribcage and his eye socket, which had caved in, according to The Evening Standard. On top of that, they inserted a titanium rod into Renner’s left shin to hold it together after it was snapped.

According to Beach, the accident is even worse than fans were made aware of, as Renner’s heart allegedly stopped afterwards.

“Jeremy [Renner] is a war horse, man,” Beach told The Direct. “I mean that guy, you know, he broke 38 bones. He actually died, which I didn’t know until he told me, and he’s been coming back.”

“And he says he wasn’t sure how it would be,” he continued. “But he was ready. And he says every week, he feels stronger and stronger. And there’s been no interruption because of his physical abilities or not. He’s in it doing it. He’s great. Yeah, he’s a great guy, man. And he’s really as tough as nails.”

Renner Eager To Get Back To Work

Renner told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year that he was focused on getting back to work on Mayor of Kingstown, the third season of which is set to premiere on Paramount+ on June 2.

“All I can focus on is this,” Renner said of his work. “Doing television is quite arduous. It’s long hours and a lot of heavy lifting.”
