    Calling all Lee Childs fans

    All of you who read Lee Childs know about Jack Reacher. He is 6'5 inches tall and weighs 250 pounds, he is one big boy!! Well, I went to the movies the other day and saw a preview of a movie called 'Jack Reacher' and I was so excited ........until I found out the star is Tom Cruise! I am so upset ! I like Tom, but 6'5" tall, he ain't. I guess the author signed his 'picking the title role' rights away. Thanks for letting me moan about this very little detail in life.

    He is so NOT who I think about when I read about Jack. Intimidating he's isn't.

    I don't know who they could get to play Jack Reacher's role, but it sure shouldn't be Tom Cruise. Tom may be okay for what he did long ago, but Jack Reacher? NOT!!! I have read most of the books Child wrote about Reacher!! He is one of my favorite "heroes" and I am so very disappointed in the movies choice... I doubt I will see it. ()'-(

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    I agree. Tom is a great actor and I hope he'll make me forget he is not 6'5.

    I love Lee Child's books, and agree, Tom C isn't the one for the role.

    We've been fuming about that for some time now. It's not just the height - Tom C doesn't have the attitude either. And he's just not that great an actor.

    Guess I'll have to check into Lee Childs and Jack Reacher. Don't know about the books but I'm not much of a Tom Cruise fan these days. Didn't see the latest Mission Impossible even when it was on cable.

    I've read the first 3 Reacher books and love them. Tom is certainly no Jack R. That's too bad they missed it so bad on casting.
