Could this be a future “what i hate in movies” entry?[/quote]
This sort of thing deserves its own thread.
Here’s a little bit about Jack Reacher (a fictional hero from a series of novels) and see if Tom Cruise is the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth, fourteenth, fifteenth, sixteenth or even seventeenth actor you’d choose to play him.
Reacher is a giant, standing at 6’ 5" tall (1.96m) with a 50-inch chest, and weighing between 210 and 250 pounds (100Ã¢??115 kg). He has ice-blue eyes and dirty blond hair. He has very little body fat, and his muscular physique is completely natural (he reveals in Persuader, he has never been an exercise enthusiast.) He is exceptionally strong but is not a good runner. Reacher is strong enough to break a man’s neck with one hand (Bad Luck and Trouble) and kill a villain with a single punch to the head (Running Blind and 61 Hours) or chest (Worth Dying For). In a fight against a 7 foot, 400 lb steroid-using thug (Persuader), Reacher was able to lift his opponent into the air and drop him on his head.
Jeese eisenberg immediately springs to mind here.
