Strange Character Casting

#1
Author Lee Child, who is behind the best-selling Jack Reacher series, has won the novel of the year award at the Harrogate Crime Writing FestivalBBC News - Author Lee Child wins top crime award


I love reading Lee Childs books, especially the Jacker Reacher series, all of which I have read, and enjoyed immensely.
But now they are going to make a film about the 6ft 5in character Jack Reacher, and who have they cast in the role ?
None other than the giant Tom Cruise.
All I can say is WTF.

FFS, the fuckin dwarf has ruined too many films already. Why not Marky Mark Whalberg? He was great in the shooter (and a bit bigger than cruise)

Thomas Jane is perfect for the role, the guy in the first Punisher Film (not the dolph lundgren crap)

Oberstleutnant Claus von Stauffenberg - 6'3'' of aristocratic Prussian military professionalism.

Tom Cruise - not.


On a similar vein of 'why the **** does that gay midget get these parts?'

That film is one I will not touch with a barge pole, I have read most if not all of the Reacher books and enjoyed them immensely, to have that stunted little scientologist wassock playing the part of Reacher is nothing short of an abomination.

I suppose the casting of a midget is not too far off as,while Reacher is described in the books as well over 6', when I have read the books I am Reacher!!!!! :)

Apologies for reviving this thread.

But having read all the Reacher books which I really enjoy, I can't begin to express my thoughts on having Lilipution Tom playing Reacher.
Out of all the actors around that I can think of, I'd have gone for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to play him.
Not the ideal choice I know, but he would of brought the physical bulk of Reacher to life.

******* Tom Cruise though. Jesus titty ******* Christ!

I like the idea of Jason Isaacs as he looks like he can handle himself and Ray Stephenson is another.

Sadly Cruise will get the job because of his massive following worldwide. There's not many films that only need to put the main actors face on the poster to sell it. Just look at Vanilla Sky, MI 2 and the Last Samurai.
