Tom Cruise Won't Play Jack Reacher Anymore: He 'Didn't Have That Physicality'

Tom Cruise apparently didn’t have the stature to continue playing Jack Reacher in the franchise movies, this according to British author Lee Child, who created the character.

Cruise, for all his talent, didn’t have that physicality,” Lee told the BBC during an interview. “I really enjoyed working with Cruise. He’s a really, really nice guy. We had a lot of fun…But ultimately the readers are right. The size of Reacher is really, really important and it’s a big component of who he is.”

Lee continued, “The idea is that when Reacher walks into a room, you’re all a little nervous just for that first minute. And Cruise, for all his talent, didn’t have that physicality….So what I’ve decided to do is – there won’t be any more movies with Tom Cruise. Instead we’re going to take it to Netflix or something like that. Long form streaming television, with a completely new actor.”

“And I want all those readers who were upset about Tom Cruise to help me out – participate in choosing the right actor for the TV series. We’re rebooting and starting over and we’re going to try and find the perfect guy,” he added.

Tom played the role in two Jack Reacher movies: one in 2012 and a sequel in 2016.
