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.

Nicole Kidman Makes Rare Statements About Her 2 Kids with Tom Cruise

Nicole Kidman does not often speak publicly about her two children with Tom Cruise.

However, the Boy Erased star just spoke with a magazine about her daughter Isabella, 25, and son Connor, 23

“I’m very private about that,” Nicole told Australia’s Who magazine. “I have to protect all those relationships. I know 150 percent that I would give up my life for my children because it’s what my purpose is.”

“They are adults. They are able to make their own decisions. They have made choices to be Scientologists and, as a mother, it’s my job to love them. And I am an example of that tolerance and that’s what I believe — that no matter what your child does, the child has love and the child has to know there is available love and I’m open here. I think that’s so important because if that is taken away from a child, to sever that in any child, in any relationship, in any family — I believe it’s wrong. So that’s our job as a parent, to always offer unconditional love,” Nicole added.

Nicole and Tom were married from 1990 to 2001.

Nicole previously mentioned her adult children last year. She also has two daughters, Sunday, 10, and Faith, 7, with husband Keith Urban.

Nicole Kidman Clarifies Comments About Tom Cruise Marriage

Nicole Kidman is further explaining some comments she made about how being married to Tom Cruise helped protect her from sexual harassment.

On the Today show on Monday (October 22), Nicole said, “I’m saying, because I was married at 23 years old, I wasn’t going to parties or I wasn’t going out a lot. I was pretty much at home. I had my first child at 25 and I was a married — I was in a family. So my sense of being in the world was — I was working, or I was at home.”

She continued, “When I say ‘protection’ there is almost like a barrier. A lot of women don’t have that. A lot of people in the world don’t have that. But I also don’t like discussing exes and all of that … I feel it’s almost disrespectful … to Tom and disrespectful to Keith [Urban]. So I try to stay in the here and now.”

Nicole‘s original comments came from New York Magazine, where she said, “I got married very young, but it definitely wasn’t power for me — it was protection. I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed.”

FYI: Nicole is wearing Sézane jeans during the interview.

Nicole Kidman Married Tom Cruise for Love, But Also Received Protection From Sexual Harassment

Nicole Kidman is featured on the cover of New York magazine’s brand new issue alongside activist Ai-jen Poo.

In the issue, Nicole spoke about her marriage to Tom Cruise, which lasted from 1990 to 2001.

“Being married to Tom Cruise at 22 is something I’m always reluctant to talk about, because I’m married now to the man who is my great love [Keith Urban], and it almost feels disrespectful,” Nicole said in the magazine. “That said, I got married very young, but it definitely wasn’t power for me — it was protection. I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed. I would work, but I was still very much cocooned. So when I came out of it at 32, 33, it’s almost like I had to grow up.”
