Anyone else a Jack Reacher fan?
I love the books, but sadly, Tom Cruise is not Jack Reacher. Spoils the films a wee bit for me. Wish they had cast Jon Bernthal in the role.
I have had this same discussion with my husband. Tom Cruise was a terrible choice for Reacher. I love the books though
I’m the exact same. Refused to watch the movies, how was Tom Cruise cast?? He is the exact opposite of the character description. I have no interest in watching him ruin my books for me!
Never read the books or saw the movie but I <3 Jon Bernthal and if they'd cast him I bet I'd have watched it a dozen times by now.
I don’t think Crazy Shane is right either lol … Tom Cruise is wrong just wrong on all levels in all films !! @Dawn I think it was because his production company got the movie option 😂😂😠
I think Tom Cruise partly funded the movies and more or less cast himself!! Bastard!
I thought the movies were great! *shields face from rotten tomatoes*
Cruise will never be Reacher
Love jack reacher, my favourite character of all time! Xx
Love love love my Jack Reacher. Bad choice of actor to portray him…but I still love my Jack!!! also got a crush on Harry Bosch!!!
This could be my Reacher
Don’t take Dean away!!! I loves him too much 😂😂😂
He is a much better match in height and “bad-a$$ quotient, (but should be older and still about 4 inches taller.) But I agree – he needs to stay in Supernatural! (I love him as Dean!)😘
He will always and forever be Dean to me!😍 Also, Reacher has said he’s not very handsome (and Jensen Ackles could NEVER, under ANY circumstances not be considered extremely handsome!) and he’s taller (than Tom Criuse for sure!😂)
Too pretty to be Reacher!
@Siri and Louise J Lowe, you both make good points. (I just love him as an actor in general, so I agreed that he would be) In another comment thread, I agreed that the actor that played “Khal Drogo” in GoT, on HBO, would be a great Jack Reacher also! (I’m SO fickle!😉😂)
On “Supernatural,” I see Dean’s attitude covering up an inferiority complex. HE doesn’t think he is as….smart, or as handsome, or as WORTHY, regardless of the “reality.”
Louise, he certainly IS pretty!😉😋
Dominic Purcell will be my Reacher. I’ve never watched supernatural, I just know Tom Cruise didn’t cut it for me!!!
He is brilliant in Supernatural, can’t argue with that!
Definitely watch Supernatural 😃😃
This could be my Bosch
I like Titus Wellever in the Amazon series 😃😃
Love the Jack Reacher novels! But Tom Cruise is not a good Jack Reacher in the movies….
I like the books … Although I’ve had to lay off as they were getting a bit predictable, will go back to then once I’ve finished my colossal piles for this year lol
Yes but Tom Cruise–no!!
I love Jack Reacher in the books, but Tom Cruise is about a foot too short to be credible. (I DO like the movies, in a general way, when I can ignore the glaring height discrepancy.) I think Tom Cruise IS a good “action hero,” just not Jack Reacher.😛😕
I agree totally wrong!
This is my jack reacher!
He could do it justice if they roughed him up a bit!
I always picture Reacher looking like kind of younger Dolf Lundgren, but with much more personality😂
Khal Drogo is my Reacher lol
This I would watch!
We’ll he’s tall muscled and mixed, which is what I assumed Jack was lol 😍😍
YES! In the books, Jack Reacher is intimidating just by walking into a room. He ⬆ certainly “fits the bill!” (With that physique and glare!) (yummmm!😘😋)
@Nicola Reacher is blond–but I’m good with this!😍
@Siri … I don’t like as much now I know he’s blond haha
Yes i love the jack reacher series
Jon Bernthal. Perfect for Reacher!
Love the characters. Cruise a big mistake.
i visioned Jack reacher as someone a bit more taller! Cruise… well!!! He acts well… but physically he aint cut out for reacher’s stature!
bought them as used paperbacks because they sounded interesting but haven’t read them yet. found out that the pos tom cruise plays the main character so now i can’t read them–they’ve been spoiled now knowing he’s involved. i’m giving them to half price books without reading them.
Whaaaat?! But the books have absolutely nothing to do with Tom Cruise! The character even looks pretty much the opposite of him—huge and blond! Give one a try at least before you give up on them because of some dumb casting decision.
I started reading Lee Child after he was recommended by SK. Love Jack Reacher❤️
