Jack Reacher to Amazon

Recommended Posts

As long as they don't cast a 5'2" as Reacher this might have a chance.

Yeah, casting will be key.

I always pictured Rat Stevenson in my head when I was reading the books.

Yeah, Ray Stevenson could be good. 

What about Dave Bautista or Jon Bernthal?

Pedro Pascal is 5'11.

He's in everything.

David Harbour is 6'3.

He's also in everything.  But, he's full-on dad bod.

Folks/studio behind Jack Ryan are doing this, so should be solid.

if jack ryan were on CBS they'd have just called it CIA. 

so long as the opening scene of each series is him sitting in a diner with his coffee and full breakfast, and the last scene of each series is him sitting in a diner with his coffee and full breakfast, and the in between consists of violence finding him, him banging the hottest chick around (who is also trying to end the violence) and him killing everyone while LEOs look the other way, i'll be satisfied.

i don't know if the source material is rich enough to make more than a few episodes per.  neither of the movies felt particularly crammed or like they were missing something.

Having read the books and watched the movies - initially it was jarring seeing that wack job imp play Reacher. I always envisioned a Dolph Lundgren lookalike as Reacher, but one that could actually act. 

Now that I’m used to the idea of Cruise as Reacher, man that crazy mofo can act. He pulls off the cockiness and wit and irreverence captured in the books so well. I imagine many others could too. It’s just hard to picture who given Cruise has done a fine acting job, and Hollywood ain’t exactly know for its height.

That's when you know you're a good actor.....when people assume you're half a foot taller than you really are.

Thanks for spoiling each book!
