Jack Reacher Casting Call

According to a story posted on June 13th in the Hollywood Reporter, Tom Cruise has an offer in hand to portray one of my favorite thriller characters, Jack Reacher.

The article says that Christopher McQuarrie has adapted Lee Child's 2005 novel, One Shot, for the screen and also plans to direct the film.

I don't know...Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher isn't exactly my pick for the powerful, yet weatherbeaten veteran that I've always pictured in my head. Reacher's always been more like Harrison Ford, or Clint Eastwood...for me, but I guess they are kind of old!
