Tom Cruise’s time as Jack Reacher has come to an end. Despite portraying the character in two films, Cruise is done as the action hero.
While a top Hollywood actor not continuing to play a character over and over again is not unusual, the reason behind Cruise’s ousting is rather, well odd.
The author of the Reacher book series, Lee Child, says Cruise is just too short to play the imposing, rage-fueled action hero.
Even though the diminutive star will not be returning as Reacher, I don’t think he’ll mind. He’s currently filming a sequel to the beloved 1980s action flick “Top Gun.”
Oh, and there’s also those somewhat popular Mission Impossible movies. Something tells me Cruise will be just fine without Reacher.
