Size DOES matter.
Tom Cruise is being replaced in the next installment of Jack Reacher. The two movies based on the British novel were released in 2012 and 2016 respectively. The series is making its way to the small screen next, a streaming network will be the new home for the spy thriller as a TV series based on the books was announced today.
Author Lee Childs admits that the superstar actor is just "too small" to play the title character. Reacher is written as 6'5" with hands the size of dinner plates. Attributes that...Tom Cruise...just...doesn't have. It's a big part of the story, and the author approves of the decision to go in a different direction.
