A new trailer for Jack Reacher (keep your credit card in your pants, John Travolta, this isn’t about a guy who gives fantastic reach arounds) starring Tom Cruise just came out and it looks like a welcome departure from that abortion called Rock of Ages. According to Yahoo,
When a gunman takes five lives with six shots, all evidence points to the suspect in custody. On interrogation, the suspect offers up a single note: “Get Jack Reacher!” So begins an extraordinary chase for the truth, pitting Jack Reacher against an unexpected enemy, with a skill for violence and a secret to keep.
Jack Reacher was written by noted author Lee Child. In the novel, Reacher is 6’5” with a 50-inch chest weighing around 210 to 250 pounds. He has ice-blue eyes and dirty blond hair with very little body fat and a completely natural muscular physique *coughroidscough*. Once in a fight against a 7′, 400 lb roided out thug, Reacher was able to lift him into the air and drop him on his head.
In contrast, Tom Cruise is 5’7” and 50 years old. His chest is nowhere near 50 inches and he’s close to 160 to 180 pounds and that’s being generous. There is no way he could raise 400 pounds above his head. He can barely raise the roof without his arms giving out.
