Cruise as Jack reacher

Cruise as Jack Reacher- Tom Cruise is a perfect fit as Ethan Hunt, but perhaps he's reaching a bit with his next proposed role.

The "Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol" actor is reportedly in negotiations with Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions to star as drifter Jack Reacher in an adaptation of "One Shot," based on the popular Reacher thrillers from author Lee Child. "The Usual Suspects" writer Christopher McQuarrie would write and direct the film. Cruise's casting is undoubtedly a bit of a curveball for fans of the Reacher series, since the character is described as 6'5" and roughly 250 pounds — not exactly Cruise's physical type.
