Tom Cruise Is A Fantastic Jack Reacher, Says Writer Lee Child

Tom Cruise scopes out a helicopter before filming for an upcoming scene for All You Need Is Kill at The Oval Cricket Stadium on Saturday (December 1) in London, England.

After checking out the ride, the 50-year-old actor changed into his costume and got ready to film.

Tom‘s Jack Reacher screenwriter Lee Child recently spoke about his excellent performance to the Herald Sun.

Cruise is a fantastic Jack Reacher”, Lee said. “He always tries to stay out of trouble and yet he can’t walk away from something that needs fixing. He shows up, he solves that problem, and he moves on,” he added about the character.

    I think you’re all stupid, mostly… Who cares if he ain’t 6′ 5?? A little guy can kick your ass just as fast. Bruce Lee was 5′ 5 , and 120 pounds. I’d like jack to try to mess with him… Second, I hear names like The Rock should’ve been cast instead. Who in there right minds would rather watch a wrestler acting rather than someone who is in about 25 great movies? Compare them if you want. Tom Cruise is the third grossing actor of all time for a reason… And as far as saying he’s just a pretty boy lets me know that everyone has forgot what kind of actor he is. In the Color Of Money, he got so good, everyone said he was as a pro pool player. In Days Of Thunder, he broke the track record for race car drivers. And don’t forget, he’s an action movie star too that does all of his own stunts and does a hell of a lot of fight scenes, and if you think he hasn’t trained to be a good fighter too, then that’s just freakin crazy.

    Teeny, tiny Crazy playing the part of a 6’5″ bad a$$…. is actually very funny!!! This movie is going to tank!

    The entire character of Jack Reacher is built around his physical size. No matter how good of an action actor he is supposed to be it’s kinda hard to picture Tiny Tom as 6′ 5″ and 260 lbs.

    I can’t believe that any one who has read a Lee Child book can believe that a runt like Tom Curise can play that part. Getr real and read a book before you try to produce a move\ie.

    I remember when people were kinda upset that the first Rambo movie starred Stallone instead of Dustin Hoffman, Al Pacino, or Robert De Niro… Maybe there’s a reason why fans don’t do the casting. lol

    Worst possible choice for a Jack Reacher, Tom Cruise really??!! Big fan here and I wont waste a dime to see this movie because of this choice.

    Jack Reacher is a big man; Cruise is little. How could they pick him for the part? He is a great action actor, but certainly no Jack Reacher! What a disappointment that they didn’t find someone more fitting! Tom Selleck is more the part, even though he is older! Or what about Howie Long (football analyst and a little acting)-big, good-looking & about the right age? Oh well, I’ll still read the books, but am sorely disappointed in the actor picked. Surely there is someone more fitting out there!

    Madame George Says:

    “Draw deep, in source, from time’s deep well,
    Upon that silent, terror, – but don’ tell
    Of deep and lasting order, line, and form,
    Though dying instead, to kiss a storm;
    Amidst the linear, chaos bound,
    And cannon’s bark, betwixt the sound
    of coo and thunder, in the wake….
    You’ll know e’en now, what hand to take……xo.”

    Would love to know what truly split Mimi, Nicole and Katie from him. ???Do u think the story will ever come out??? U know, like Lindsey Lohan now with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton???

    Zack Says:

    If you have read the books, suspension of disbelief will never make Tom “tiny dancer” Cruise into Jack Reacher. And Reacher doesn’t drive well, much less ripping a Chevelle SS!!! Child’s endorsement of the movie has closed the book on any further Reacher novels I will ever read. Sell out!!!

    Since I’ve never read Child’s novel, and I like Tom Cruise, this looks like a winner for me.
