    I completely agree.

    It just annoys me when they take a great book that could be a great movie and screw it up.

    Please please please don't let them get their hands on Lucas Davenport or Mitch Rapp.

    They did Mind Prey, I think it was on Lifetime, with that guy that used to be on ER - his name is Eriq LaSalle. Not sure who thought THAT was a good idea, but I couldn't bear to watch.

    What horsehit that is!!!

    I'll have to think on this a bit but, that is outrageous!

    Now, in Tom's defense, he played an assassin in some movie I can't remember the name, things go wrong and he basically kidnaps a taxi cab driver to get him around town to do his business in such and such time. He actually pulled that off pretty good.

    Bad castings; Will Smith in that golf movie. Tailor made role for Morgan.

    Defoe as Clark in Clear and Present Danger. Clark is Seagal.

    Aflack as Ryan in Sum of all Fears. Ryan is Baldwin but, if Alec doesn't want it, someone had to do it.

    Cruise also did a great job in that Samurai movie, a Jack Reacher sort of disaffected character, no where near the credit the whole movie deserved, so, we will see.

    I could see Colin Ferral as Reacher. I could even see what's his face, Mathew Mcaughney.

    Too gay. I think mAlice nailed it with Paul Bettany - he's good looking enough to star in a movie, but brings that sense of strong silent dangerous to the mix.

    That's not Reacher. At least not to me. Reacher is a rather reflective character that thinks about stuff and people and life as well as being a tough guy. Or, am I thinking of the wrong guy?

    Maybe you're thinking of the wrong guy, 'cuz PB has those exact qualities, at least that's what I see based on the characters he has portrayed.
