    This is what is so cool about books and music before Satan, MTV, came along, the joys of individual interpretation.

    To me, this is NOT Jack Reacher.

    I suspect Larry is thinking of some character other than Reacher. I mean, Matthew McConaughey? He has "ghey" in his name for a reason.

    Having too much ammunition in the house is like having too much fuel in your aircraft; the only time you have too much is when you're on fire.

    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.
    The worst casting mistake EVER.

    That's what I thought. That would explain you not getting it. Thanks for joining the conversation, though. We really got a kick out of your recommendations

    edited to add, in all fairness, I haven't read any of the bigs we're discussing.

    I don't suppose you can stop making fun of me long enough to make a recommendation of what is a good movie by this guy that will sell me on his Reacher-ness?

    Priest-Not a great movie, but you can see how he would fit the bill for Reacher.
    DaVinci Code-He's opus day-on a mission.
    A Knights Tale-this character does nothing to indicate he would be good for Reacher. But I think watching some of the movies he's in will help. I think he's fairly well rounded.

    You may have even seen him and don't remember him. I'm think he's just coming into his own.
