    All you  Lee Child/Jack Reacher fans out there, what do you think of Tom Cruise in the lead role?

    The first teaser trailer of 'Jack Reacher'  has just been released. All the readers who love the 6'5" Goliath that is Reacher - what do you think of Tom Cruise in the lead role?

    Great question Domco, I was just watching the trailer in fact!  I don't know what he think of him as the lead role, although I have not been let down by him before in any of his roles.  Who knows, this could be the first let down, if you will.  Have you seen "A Few Good Men?"  I did a review on that movie on my personal blog, I love Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson.

      A Few Good Men is one of my favorite films Josh. I think Cruise can covey toughness and resilience without the extra inches.. A few good men sparkled due to the dialogues by Aaron Sorkin one of  favorite screenplay writers ( social network,west wing)

    I am not thrilled with it unless they can come up with a way to make him grow a foot. He is really short, couldn't they find an actor that might be a bit more of the character?

      You're Right Becky.Visually it is impossible to ignore the fact that after all these books the image we have of Reacher doesn't really match Cruise. Having watched the trailer I wasn't very impressed . Let's hope its a good film in its own right.

    I would not be an expert on this because I am not familiar with Lee Child/Jack Reacher - not sure who they are, however I am sure Tom Cruise can pull this one off too. He is a fine actor in my opinion.
