When we first heard Tom Cruise would be playing Lee Child's One Shot lead, a long-running character named Jack Reacher, many were a tad skeptical. After all, Reacher is described as a 6'5", 250-pound powerhouse, whereas Tom Cruise tops out around five-and-a-half feet. How would Cruise account for the missing foot of height?
Reacher creator Child offered a partial solution, saying, "Reacher's size in the books is a metaphor for an unstoppable force, which Cruise portrays in his own way," and now, from Celebuzz, we see how Cruise will make up the rest of the difference: Just a nice set of thick heels, you know? What acting can't project, two inches of rubber will.
