Say Hello To Your New Mad Max?S

Is this man really the next Mel Gibson? We're somewhat doubtful, but Jeremy Renner is definitely in talks with George Miller to appear in the new Mad Max movie in some capacity.

Renner, who can currently be seen in The Hurt Locker, told the Modesto Bee that he's currently screen testing for the movie, and that it may shoot next summer, leading to some people wondering aloud whether or not he'll take Gibson's place in the new movie. We can't see it - We'd hope for someone a little less meek-looking, to be honest - but we've been wrong before...
