Renner leafs through Fox's 'Oaks'


Jeremy Renner has been tapped to star in Fox's drama "The Oaks" for director Michael Cuesta.

"Oaks," from 20th Century Fox TV, tells the intertwined stories of three families -- a young couple who have just lost a child in 1968, a family of four in 1988 and a pregnant couple in 2008 -- who live in the same house and are haunted by a restless spirit.

Renner will play Dan, the expectant father in 2008, whose wife is played by previously cast Bahar Soomekh. The actor, who co-stars in "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," is repped by CAA.
