Reacher

I discovered Lee Child's series of book featuring Jack Reacher earlier this year. The good news was that it gave me a whole series of books to read - and the opportunity to read them in sequence. I am almost up to date with the series and look forward to Child's latest release.

But now I read in the entertainment news that Tom Cruise is going to star in a movie version of one of the books. Whaaat? Jack Reacher is 6'-5" and 250 lbs. Tom Cruise is smaller than most of his ex-wives.

Who would you cast for the part of Jack Reacher?

Hmmm, I can't even THINK of a current actor that is big enough to cast...

Actor Adam Baldwin (no relation to that idiot Baldwin that's on the credit card commercials).

He's six foot four, about 48 years old. I was a big fan of his in Firefly so I'm a big biased though. :-)

Anyone but Cruise? Good grief, what are they going to do, cast midgets for the rest of the cast??

What about Liev Schreiber? He's 6'3".
