So are Lee Childs books. I enjoyed the first few Jack Reacher books but then became very bored..same stories and format. For someone who was supposed to be so clever he wasn't very good at spotting the ble**ing obvious!! Should have killed him off a while ago.

Gerard Butler may have some of the physicality required for the role but i wouldn't be able to get past the scottish accent that he has never yet been able to hide.

I thought that my wife was taking the p**s when she told me that Tom Cruise was playing Reacher. He is an OK actor and I have enjoyed several of his films, but Reacher? It makes a mockery of the books and is a slap in the face to all the loyal readers who put Lee where he is today. I would have told the studio to take a running jump before accepting Tom Cruise as Reacher.

Is that before or after the reputed (telegraph article - 2009) £20m pound deal was waved in front of you?

I happen to agree with you....I maybe could have accepted it if Child had banked the cheque and then kept his mouth shut. Although in his defence (and i hate doing it) i suspect much of the reputed amount is contingent on box office success which is why he has convinced himself that the Cruiser is a good choice and has been prostituting himself in the cause ever since.

And Christopher Lee has to be the older Veillur/Glaeken

Best to play reacher is Dwayne "the rock" Johnson

Anyone who has ever seen Farscape would insist that the only one to play Jack Reacher is Ben Browder. He has everything needed for the role.

I've only just tumbled to this discussion, and in case someone's not already suggested it, I have to go for Liam Neeson. Tall, buff, looks like he could kill you without breaking sweat, oh yes, and he can also act!

Absolutely has to be Gerard Butler

All this "who should play Jack Reacher" is academic its a done deal Tom Cruise has given himself the part, and we should all boycott the movie! Cheers

david boreanaz would be fantastic from bones and angel

agree with you, DOMINIC WEST as Reacher, has to be self contained and self sufficient, alone in the world, and has a strong sense of code of justice as per military, retribution, and trustworthyness.... but I never noticed Reacher was blond.
another choice I would vote for Liam Nisam, he looks deep, brooding and complex enough to pull it off!!!!

Not really? Some other reasonable ideas follow on the forum. Actually, anyone who's not Tom Cruise

An actor with long-ish name, I'd say...

Quote a little bit of it:
'His relationship with is partner'

Just beautiful. More, please

Kenny Johnson for reacher he fits the description of jack reacher very well (sons of anarchy and saving grace)

Hugh Jackman would be my choice as well.
