Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum! Tom Cruise To Play Giant In Beloved Series Of An Englishman!

| Filed under: Film FlickersTom Cruise

And those are some big shoes to film.

Tom Cruise is apparently in talks to star in the film adaptation of Lee Child's thriller book One Shot. Lee has a 16 book series following the former United States Army Military Police Major Jack Reacher, who finds himself drifting through life, literally. Physically, Jack is written to stand at 6'5, with barely any fat and has an intimidating demeanor.

Doesn't sound like Cruise to us - or to any of the fans!

In fact, upon hearing the news, fans of the beloved series started to riot (online) and swore if he were cast, they would boycott the movie.

Sounds like producers better start rethinking this casting situation. If the fans of the book won't come, then there is zero money to be made. Trust us, there aren't enough fans of Tommy to balance out the difference.

    "…aren't enough fans…"? Orly?
    .
    The endless legions of Xenu will crush you and your puny web site for your insolence!

    Muah ha ha. Muah ha ha ha ha.

    this is ironic to me considering how short he is. bahaha.



  3. 3

    Who did he have to blow to get that part? He is soooooo embarrassing.



  4. 4

    WHYYYY?! They are going to have to cast a bevy of "petite" people or a really sturdy box… Well at least his star power will prompt people to attend…

    No way!
    Jack Reacher is a total man. And 6'5"!!! Tom is 5'6".
    Talk about messing up a great series.
    They could have gotten Joe Manganiello, Jason Momoa, Dwayne Johnson or even John Cena.
    Joe Manganiello (Alcide on True Blood) would be perfect!!!

    It's over Tom! You are no sex symbol anymore!!!

    only his ego would allow him to play a man 6ft tall. He is so yesterday.

    That is how I felt about javier bardem being cast for Roland in the Gunslinger Series.
    Tom is like 5-6 or something? Gees

    What a travesty. And it is such a great series of books. Why would they ever cast a guy who hasnt even been taller than any of his multiple wives in the role of a lean, strapping, 6'5", muscular, 255#, blonde hero? Certainly there are action pics out there Cruise can be in that feature middle aged men who are shorter than average in the lead. Maybe some L Ron Hubbard opus from the 50s or something.

    Why is he still wearing this shirt?????????? He has been pictured in this outfit to many times.

    This is just the way Cruise sees himself. Not surprised at all!
