You gotta love Hollywood. Even though the main character of the Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child is 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds, Paramount saw fit to put Tom Cruise in the movie as the character. Inspired casting indeed.
This may come as a surprise to some of you but Tom Cruise is nowhere near 6-foot-5 or 250 pounds. Not even when he wears the lifts in his shoes and the camera shoots him from a low angle so he looks taller. It’s just not believable, sorry.
Oh well, since when has Hollywood tried to do anything believable, right? It is entertainment and make believe after all, not a documentary.
Anyway, the first trailer for the Jack Reacher film featuring Cruise has dropped and we’ve got it for. What do you think of Cruise?
Check out the trailer after the break. Look for the bad ass Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher to arrive in theaters on December 21.
