Alan Ritchson to Star in 'Jack Reacher' TV Series as Title Role!

Alan Ritchson has landed the title role in the upcoming Jack Reacher television series, which is being made at Amazon.

The drama series will be based on the character from the Lee Child book series, which was turned into two movies starring Tom Cruise.

There was some backlash over Tom‘s casting in the films as the character is described as being 6’5″-tall and weighing between 210 and 250 pounds. The “imposing” character is a US Army veteran investigating suspicious activities that frequently put him in danger.

Tom is only 5’7″-tall in real life, while Alan fits the physical description of the character at 6’4″ and 235 pounds, according to Deadline.

The first season of the Jack Reacher series will be based on the first novel, “The Killing Floor.” It will be written and executive produced by Nick Santora, who previously worked on the CBS series Scorpion and the recent Quibi shows Most Dangerous Game and The Fugitive.

Alan is best known for his work in the recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the cult series Blue Mountain State, and the recent DC Universe series Titans.
