Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher? Really?
It was a big week for Tom Cruise news. Overlooked in the frenzy over the TomKat break-up was the trailer for Jack Reacher, a film based on the best-selling thrillers by Lee Child. Although Child approved of the casting, many of the author's fans did not. In the books Reacher is a mountain of a man, tall and broad with hands the size of canned hams. Tom Cruise is not quite as physically imposing.
Jack Reacher is based on One Shot, the ninth book in the series. The movie is not being released until December 21, 2012, so there's plenty of time to catch up on the books.
