RIP Tom Clancy!

But I doubt even something like death will be able to stop him from writing! I can wait to read his first post mortem novel....Dead Storm Rising. It will put the walking dead and world war Z to shame!

Wouldn't surprise me. He had ghost writers for most of his later work.

He had become a "brand name," and much like James Michener and James Patterson, I think he wound up sketching broad plot outlines and let co-authors write the books, then he would slap his name at the top and reap the money.
Pretty much this......his early stuff was classic though.

So who's the best Jack Ryan?


Alec Baldwin
Harrison Ford
Ben Affleck
Chris Pine

I'm probably going to be in the minority here but, I have to say Baldwin. He fits the analyst bill better than Ford IMHO.

I'd go with Baldwin as well. Red October was the best movie. Although I really liked Clear and Present Danger. The one with Affleck sucked. The first one with Ford sucked.

Never saw the Pine one.

Clancy definitely knew a lot of "inside" stuff in his early years. I haven't read a Clancy book in a long time tho.

Rainbow Six was one of my all time favorite books when I was a teenager. I eat that special forces shit up. Clancy was a master.

As much as I love Harrison Ford, Baldwin nailed the roll, and had perfect chemistry with Connery.

Red October is my favorite film, and my favorite book of his as well.
