If, like me, you are a fan of Lee Child's Jack Reacher crime novels......get ready to weep.
Guess who is playing Reacher in the soon to be made 'One Shot' movie, bearing in mind that Reacher is 6ft 5ins, 240lbs and blond.

AGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

Read a few of those books (thanks Derek), highly impressed.

I hope they keep the style and theme of the books in mind for the film - more probably end up as yet another James Bond lookalike, similar to the way they destroyed Mission Impossible from the TV series.

Yeah. Just like Bilko, The Beverley Hillbillies, The Flintstones, Scooby-doo, Charlie's Angels, The Avengers etc. etc.
It never works.

Sorry, straying off topic.

After watching Con Air tonight, I reckon Nick Cage could bw Reacher. He has the moves. Tom Cruise is a joke!!

But Reacher is supposed to have like a kevlar chest, neither of those two could pull that off!

Who do you think could play the part best?
I'd like to see Kevin Sorbro (of Hercules and Andromeda tv series)

John Cena or The Rock, both have made good jobs of their roles in other films.

Jason Statham from the Transporter movies could do it, he'd play the part perfectly. Think he'd do it more justice than Cruise.

John Cena's still a boy, The Rock has done too many comedies for my liking, Jason Statham is too skinny! tease

He'd have to be older, bigger, taller, I don't know :S But not Tom Cruise for god's sake tease

Vincent D'Onofrio would have been ideal 5 or so years ago.

Yeah because you said that when I started reading them I can't imagine anyone else playing him!
