I am all for artistic licence but I thought the author Lee Child's character Jack Reacher was 6'5" tall and weighed 17st.
Tom Cruise is 5'7" and a bit and around 12st.
A bit of a difference in size I think you will agree. Of course the ideal man to play this character would have been Clint eastward in his prime.
I am not sure I could watch the film without thinking your far to small to play this part.LOL.

Tom Cruise may well be good in this role but he does not immediately come to mind for the role of Reacher. He is perhaps too pretty for a start.
As an aside, I wish someone would make a film of Harry Bosch, the grumpy, unhappy middle age detective created by Michael Connelly. The Lincoln Lawyer by him was made, played by Mickey Haller as the defence lawyer was excellent. If you have not come acrross his books try "The Reversal" amongst plenty of others. A film I would highly recommend at the moment is Killer Joe, again with Mickey Haller in the lead role of a crooked, sadistic detective.
