7. American Hustle (2013)

A black comedy crime drama also starring the likes of Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, and Jennifer Lawrence, to name a few, American Hustle is a highly revered film that received critical acclaim. For playing the role of  the supporting, super shady "Mayor Carmine Polito," Renner received $1 million.

6. The Immigrant (2013)

An American drama film based on Polish immigrants, The Immigrant was a fairly big success when it was released in 2013.

4. The Bourne Legacy (2012)

An action spy thriller also starring Rachel Weisz, Jeremey Renner plays a governmental operative assigned an experimental drug program known as "Operation Outcome", remarks on Renner's performance were that he played a believable agent.

1. Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015)

An action spy thriller film of epic proportions, Renner plays IMF field operations director "William Brandt". Receiving extremely positive reviews, Renner, Cruise, and friends received impressive reviews and Renner received $8 million for his supporting role in the film.
