People have been outraged ever since it was announced that 5’7″ Tom Cruise will be playing 6’5″ Jack Reacher. Author Lee Child was asked about his opinion on the choice…

“Honestly, I’m incredibly thrilled and grateful that anyone has an opinion at all,” Child said. “Okay, he doesn’t look exactly right, but he sure does act like Reacher. People are acting as if we marched past vast legions of 6’5″, 250-pound actors. Nobody looks like that in Hollywood.”

We get your point, Lee. Sure, there’s always The Rock, but then you’d have everyone complaining about how he’s the wrong race. There is only one thing for sure and that is that there’s no pleasing everyone.
