I haven't seen the movie, or read the books ( I do have One Shot though, so hoping to start that soon), but i thought Cruise played a brilliant badass in Collateral. Intense performance

Re: Could Dwayne Johnson played Jack Reacher better than Tom Cruise?

I read the book on which the movie is based on like 2 months ago. Was a very good read and since then I became a fan of JR (LOL I love that JR too)

Cruise and The Rock are both underrated actors for all I care.

As to answer the question - there is no much point in guessing, is there?

I think Dwayne Johnson can achieve anything he sets his mind on.

Tom Cruise is underrated as an actor? First time I've ever heard that in my life.

Having not yet seen the movie, did they just cast bad guys to be proportionally short to Tom? Seems like the easy solution.


Call Kenny Loggins. Cause you're in the Danger Zone.

I've read a lot of comments lately of people who shit on him as an actor. Thought a few seconds later I reminded myself that everyone is being battered on teh internetz.

Nah, just normal guys. The bad guy in the movie was probably 6 inches taller than him haha.

The size issue only really comes up in the movie once because in the book one of the henchmen is a giant guy too and he uses his physical size to break someones neck to frame Reacher. And they kind of play that off in the film and while it makes sense in the book from a forensics standpoint in the movie its just like a "Hey he did it! Get him!" poorly written plot point.

In the book Reacher sneaks up behind the same henchman and snaps his neck one handed so thankfully they kept that out of the movie.

Reacher is 6' 5" tall (1.96 m).

How tall is Cruise again?

Jason Statham

He's not naturally bald, and shaves his head. So had he let his hair grow, and dyed it blonde I feel like he could have pulled it off. But even that wouldn't be a total necessity when doing an adaptation. He's also done films in the past with an American accent so that would not have been a problem.
