…..through my eyes. I thought the boys would appreciate this. I’m here to help, after all.
Jack Reacher is a character in the novels by Jim Grant (aka Lee Child). The other day when I was at my sister’s for Mother’s Day, she told me Tom Cruise portrays Jack Reacher in the movie. Three words: I was appalled!!
Let me back up and say that Jack Reacher is 6’5”, he is blond, and he kicks ass. Uh-huh. He’s a former Army MP. Honestly, I believe the author was thinking the same thing as I when envisioning the character. Jack’s birthday is the same day (not year) as the 6’51/2” blond actor, Dolph Lundgren. He is the perfect fit given his bio, but I know very well that he is a bit long in the tooth (by Hollywood’s standards) for the role now. Being that Child’s first book was out in the late 90’s, I imagine he envisioned a rugged 40ish-year-old. He is still hawt.
He’s really pretty. Too pretty to be Jack!!
Gawd…..zilla!!! What was I on about? Oh, yes, Jack!
Truthfully, I’m not very attracted to blonds, but I would feel it quite necessary to make an exception for Jack Reacher. Dang! I should’ve cast this movie!! Go read Echo Burning by Lee Child; it is one of my favourites from the series. Then again, you could start at the beginning with the Killing Floor…..They’re all good. Yeah, I’ve kinda got it bad for a character in a book…..
