sort of reminds me of the casting for spenser for hire. they skipped over the fact that spenser was a massive bodybuilder - plus all his other physical features. hopefully the reacher movie will at least be better than the spenser series.

Even Robert Urich was a better match than shrinking 6 foot 5 inch Reacher down to 5 feet 7 inches and a hundred+ pounds lighter.

They might be able to pull it off with this particular book in the series but not with most of the others.

Oooh, melmac, Liev Schreiber! That's a great choice! I'm addicted to the Reacher series, read them all and listened to them all (bar the newest), and I can not see Tom Cruise. I like Cruise a lot, good actor and better movie star, but not Reacher. I'm still recovering from Cruise in Interview with a Vampire <shudder>.

I've seen him in Tropic Thunder most recently. It could be interesting.

Unhappy It's a joke, really.

I think the "casting" says more about Cruise's somewhat confused perception of himself than it does about anything else !
Or do I mean over-inflated ego and...ditto... ?

Yes, that's the one.

He clearly sees nothing strange about trying to play a very large, charismatic one-man army - it would take a very good small actor indeed to pull off such a stunt, and that he ain't, victuaria has it right I think. Mind you, he may have money in the project don't forget, which could skew the whole situation.
Actually, I think Richard Grere would be better, certainly in the acting stakes - but still not the biz, and too old, as is Cruise.

Course, Polyfilla shares will go up ..............

Perhaps Cruise simply hasn't read the books - which doesn't exactly say a lot for what the scriptwriters have come up with to "tempt" him.

I think that Tom Selleck would do a good job; perhaps except for his age. He is a tall man and has a rugged appearance. Also, I think he can carry off the brutal unfeeling side of Reacher's character.
