    A lot of fun movies, but the actor is a scientologist. Let's call that even.

    But Cruise cannot be Jack Reacher, WTF is wrong with everyone who thinks otherwise.

    6'2, 240lbs, slab muscles and gorilla arms. Not a pretty face. Wtf kinda casting agent sends cruise that way.

    He cast himself as he has the rights. It's all about the star pulling power and money.

    I didn't like the first film 'Reacher', not because it starred Tom Cruise as the big man, but because it failed to portray his morality accurately, oh and had him driving a car. I've not seen the second one yet, but will give it a look when it appears on Netflix/Amazon/TV.

    Who would you have cast? I thought Liam Neeson could work, right age, build, action pedigree, and a nose broken multiple times from being a boxer.

    I know he had no drivers license, but didn't he drive in the books?

    What do you mean about his morality?

    A bit over five and a half. Google who should play jack reacher, and it seems I didn't invent this issue. Btw here is something on the subject from the author!
