I also always had the impression he was taller......until he was parodied on The Simpsons (season 20, episode 1) where there was a short ass bounty hunter named Wolf.....so I checked it out.

Even though he is only 5'8", Kiefer Sutherland might be good. Jack Bauer plays Jack Reacher.

"P.S. @Meya. 'Dog' The Bounty Huunter is same height as Tom Cruise (5'8" give or take an inch)."

He sure looks bigger than that. I actually don't watch his show or know anything about him or the book in question. He just popped into my head when I read the description.

Conan Stevens would be an awsome choice (acting skills permitting) as he is massive and a good physical fit for Reacher (maybe a couple inches taller, but not a foot shorter a'la Cruise).

However, if looking for 'mainstream' actors then personally it think Ron Perlman or Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Nothing against Cruise as an actor, but even this great actor couldn't pull off a 10 inch height difference!

I have read all the Reacher novels and absolutley love them, I would hate to have this spoilt by a mis-cast lead in a movie version.

P.S. @Meya. 'Dog' The Bounty Huunter is same height as Tom Cruise (5'8" give or take an inch).

I am crazy about those Lee Child books!Sam Elliot or Tom Sellick would be perfect I don't care if they are a older than the character. Harrison Ford was doing his Indiana Jones as he was older.
I couldn't bear to watch the movie if they had Tom Cruise.. Gee what are they thinking?

Talk about ruining a book. Tom Cruise is a horrible, short, stumpy, actor. NOT Jack Reacher...OH this makes me sad...

I've yet to start reading the Jack Reacher series which i'll do very soon, but i understand that Reacher is supposed to be a very tall imposing guy. How about David Morse for the role? he's tall and he can play a though guy. I can see him as Reacher.

that would be wrong on so many levels!

Only if he could look like he did when he played Rob Roy.

I like Liam Neeson. I was thinking along the lines of a younger Sean Connery.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan could be an excellent choice!

I like the idea of Jeffrey Dean Morgan. I think Viggo Mortenson or Liev Schreiber (probably didn't spell that right) would also do a good job as Reacher. Tom Cruise is a terrible idea for the part of Jack Reacher.

I didn't see Lestat, but could it be any worse than Elvis as a blond?

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 16, 2011 7:12:41 AM PDT
From these stats, his body would be just like my late husband's (except for the color!) and I don't think for a minute Cruise would be able to play that part.

I vote for Jeffrey Dean Morgan. A couple inches short of goal, but an awesome voice to match the character. And he's very manly.

I have only read part of a Jack Reacher novel, but isn't the character like, 6'3'' and very brawny? How is Tom Cruise going to fill that role? Ben Affleck seems like a good fit.

Personally, I would prefer Kyle Chandler *grins*, but even his 6' 1" would be too short.

Edit: because roll is much different than role. lol

Worst choice since some dingbat decided to bleach Cruise's hair for the role of Lestat. Never saw a more unnatural-looking blonde before or since and that's coming from a bottle-blonde lol.

Isn't Tom Cruise like 5'8" tall or shorter?? Jack Reacher? No way could he pull that off.
