    Jack Reacher is 6’5 Brad Pitt isn’t

      sorry, tom cruise, not brad pitt.

        Yeah it’s such a bizarre casting. But it’s one of those where I hope Cruise will see it as a challenge, and end up killing in the role.

        It’s always good to have some blind optimism ;)

      • John_C

        Maybe the casting director is dyslexic because Tom Cruise is 5’6″ in heals.

    A great series, at least the 1st book in the series really holds you from the start. My brother and I share a lot of our books. I’ve already queued the rest of the series for my Kindle.

    I am very disappointed Tom Cruise is playing Jack Reacher…Jack is a very tall, large, good looking man…Tom has none of those traits…What were they thinking? Why didn’t they select Josh Brolin or another believeable hunk…I won’t see the movie as it will ruin my picture of Jack Reacher. So sad.

  • Kcidepac

    not even sure I want to read the book. I was so disappointed with Tom Cruise being picked to play Jack Reacher. In every one of his books, he refers to the size and weight of Reacher, and then he picks TC to play the part? Would he pick Danny De Vito to play Andre the Giant?

    • DealerDan

      Funny you mention that as I just watched the episode of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia last night where Danny Devito dresses up as a wrestler – wearing a black singlet just like Andre!

    Very rarely do any of these books translate to the big screen. I’ll stick to going to the library and get my entertainment from there. Actually, I don’t go to moves, don’t even rent and what’s more I don’t watch TV. Books, books, and more books. However, my favorite author, Vince Flynn, recently passed away and has left a huge void in my reading. And, now they are not releasing the book he was working on before he passed away–don’t know why??? But we still have Thor, Baldacci, etc. thank God.

  • book are me

    Horrid miscasting, just horrid. Not interested in the film. I don’t want my imagination of the “giant” Reacher ruined, especially by the tiny Cruise
