Who’ll be Jack Reacher?

The big question remains, who will play the lead role? It will not be Tom Cruise, who played Reacher in two movie releases. Our money is on it being Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood), with a long shot at Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Endgame).

Regardless of this, considering the popularity of the books, Jack Reacher is likely to be a coup for Amazon Prime Video.
