Even in a new movie, Steve McQueen is cooler than youS

Hollywood Reporter reports that two-time Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner of Hurt Locker fame has just tapped himself to play the lead role in an upcoming biopic of Steve McQueen.

Although the concept of Renner playing McQueen might not sit well with some, we're just glad they didn't go with Brad Pitt. Gross.

The movie will be produced by Renner's own production company and will be based on two classic books about the "King of Cool" by Marshall Terrill: Portrait of an American Rebel and The Life and Legend of a Hollywood Icon.
