Jeremy Renner: I'll make a jerk of myself on 'Saturday Night Live'

He's proven himself on the big screen in blockbusters, such as "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol," "The Hurt Locker," "The Avengers" and "The Bourne Legacy," but none of that has prepared Jeremy Renner for his next big role -- "Saturday Night Live" guest host.

"(I'm feeling) more excitement than nervousness," Renner told TODAY's Savannah Guthrie Wednesday morning. "I don't know enough to be nervous yet."

But as a self-professed huge fan of the late-night sketch comedy, Renner at least knows how he plans to tackle the task.

"(I'll) make a jerk of myself probably -- that's the plan," he said. "That's probably why I wanted to do it anyways."

Ultimately, he's leaving the real plans to the "SNL" pros.

"They know what they're doing," the actor assured. "I'll just sort of kind of fit in to what they're doing … unless it's completely ridiculous or something I can't do."

See just what Renner can do when heads up "SNL" this Saturday at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.
