I love the Reacher novels, but I just can't wrap my head around the 6'2" ex-marine being played by Tom Cruise. :o(

interesting...so they didn't pattern it after a book, but rather the character.

I read three or four of these books, and I'm baffled as to how they decided to get Cruise to play Reacher. He's completely wrong for the part physically, and his personality doesn't seem to match either. Oh well.

Sounds like the Bourne movies. There are passing similarities in story lines, but the books and the movies don't mesh together well at all.

I may have to give these books a look; seem pretty interesting after some legwork.

Cruise has his own production company. Likely he bought the rights to the character himself. So he picked himself.

Isn't Cruise 4'5"? Reacher is 6'6" 250 and rough looking.

This is almost as bad as when Cruise played a freaking Samurai. LMAO

It'll be perfect. Haven't read the books, but won't it be so lifelike when Reacher tries to shout at someone and his voice breaks? That's the picture I have in my mind anyway.

The Jack Reacher character isnt an ex-Marine, he's a former Army Soldier:thumb:

Ah yes, you are correct. Army MP. Joe Pike is the ex-Marine

I think the last Cruise movie I liked was Rain Man.

That is exactly what happened. I like a lot of the Reacher books, but that trailer looks like ass.

I like Tom Cruise, but.....................................................NO!!!

bad casting choice. They shoulda went with someone who looks badass. Plus he sounds like a pussy. I haven't read the books, maybe it's supposed to be a regular looking dude that is a total badass and you wouldn't expect it or something.

Xenu isn't going to like what some of you are saying.
Or thinking.
