One Shot - Tom Cruise is Jack Reacher

I just finished reading 'One Shot', another in the Jack Reacher series. Not a bad little yarn.

But now I've just discovered that Tom Cruise has signed on to play Jack Reacher in the movie version!

Oh C'MON!!!

Jack Reacher: 6 feet 5 inches tall, 220-250 lbs, 50-inch chest, straw coloured hair.  Lee Child wrote it thus; in every novel.

Expect us to believe Tom Cruise is Jack Reacher?  I think not!!

My suggestion: Daniel Craig.  Craig would make a much more credible Reacher.

My wife, who's never read a Jack Reacher novel, reckons even Brad Pitt would be better for the role than Tom Cruise!

Anyway, Robert Duvall is apparently also in the cast (presumably as the Zec), as is Rosamund Pike (to play Helen Rodin), so it could be O.K. I wonder who they'll choose to play Ann Yanni?
