The worst film casting ever

#1
I am a follower of the author Lee Child and his series of Jack Reacher books (16 to date). The hero of the books is a 6' 5" 250 pound hard as nails ex military police Major who now spends his time drifting across America trying to stay out of the trouble that seems to find him at every turn.

This man is so nails that when he got shot by a .38 he was saved because the round got stuck in his pectoral muscle!! In the opening chapter of one book he has a job digging swimming pools.....by hand!!

OK however far fetched you've got the gist.

So who has been cast as this man mountain in the upcoming film version of one of the books.....Tom Cruise!! 5' 7" 150 pounds soaking wet!!

Is this one of the worst film castings of a book adaptation of all time? Or can you come up with an even worse one.

Robert Carlyle as the man himself in Hitler: The Rise of Evil (2003).

Jimmy Saville would have been more Hitlerlike quite frankly.

There's a few more so I'll have a fink about it.

A cynical man might think that Tom Hanks bought the film rights so he could be in it

On a slight tangent.....

Another Hitler one ; I watched Hitler: The Last Ten Days (1973) a few months ago and was expecting a pile of shit because I couldn't get my head around Sir Alec Guinness in the title role.

I am disappointed to report that Guinness did a ******* excellent job.

Lee Child is one of my favorite authors. He's also a complete whore who tried to justify Tom Cruise playing Reacher by spouting a load of shite about how Jack's size is, "Just a metaphor for the unstoppable force of his willpower and personality".

Babel Fish Translation: this film is going to be a ******* abortion. That Gay little freak is going to royally **** over the character I created and piss off millions of my fans. But since he's paying me an obscene amount of money, I'm just going to lie back and enjoy it.
