Inspired by the James Bond thread. If anyone was to make another Jack Reacher film then who should play him? 15 years ago it would have been Liam Neeson. I can't think of anyone suitable now.

I still think Liam Neeson ! He's the only one I can think of tall enough

Clive Owen ��

I think Clive Owen is a bit dark for Jack Reacher but if they ever made a film of the John Connolly books he could be a contender for Charlie Parker.

Certainly not Tom Cruise!!!

Jason Statham! smile

Anyone, absolutely anyone apart from Tom Crusie, and I mean anyone, even Tom Hanks.

Clive Owen would be great, but has anyone considered Christopher Meloni from SVU. Many drunken conversations with friends and all agree he would be fab.

Tommy Lee Jones.

Hm, Daniel Craig might work. Tom cruise? Bloody awful.

The actor who plays Phoebe's policeman boyfriend in Friends.

Alexander Rhodes.

Liev Schrieber is a very good suggestion. Jack Reacher is not smug so Tom Cruise and Damien Lewis are automatically excluded.

I love Jason Statham as well but accents are not his strong point.

Philip Winchester (from Strike Force).

Loved the Tom Hanks suggestion and I quite agree. Literally anyone other than Cruise. Philip Seymour Hoffman in character as Truman Capote would have been better than Cruise. In fact Hoffman was so amazing in everything he could have been a fantastic Reacher despite being - ahem - unsimilar physically. No more so than pocket-sized Tommy mind you.

I know: Woody Allen.

Jim Cavaziel. If anyone has watched Person of Interest, Reece is what I think Reacher would be like. That and he's vair easy on the eyes wink

Great shout smurfing!

"Jim Cavaziel. If anyone has watched Person of Interest, Reece is what I think Reacher would be like."

Was just coming on to say the same. Has to be him!
