I’ve read and enjoyed all of the Jack Reacher books and watched all of the first film and a little bit of the second, but I have to admit that, like a lot of people, I struggle with Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher. So, just for fun, let’s imagine that the film series goes the same way as many film, book and comic franchises and gets a reboot. Let’s imagine that we start from the beginning a la Casino Royale and kick off the reboot with “Killing Floor”. Who would you put into the starring role of Jack Reacher, fresh out of the army? I’ve pondered this and so far I can think of one American actor (maybe) and one Australian actor (if he can do the accent), but the role does need someone of the right age, with a bit of ruggedness and gravitas, intelligent eyes and a voice to match. He has to be tall and well-built and (I probably need to say in 2018) he can’t be a she. Over to you.
