Like with the One Shot movie from the Lee Child book, they're using Tom Cruise as Reacher and he is so NOT Reacher it's ridiculous.
    He would make a great Jack, I can't believe I never thought of him before

    Edit: and John Leguizamo as Julio would be a good fit

    Default Repairman Jack should be ordinary looking, yet intense...

    Jack is supposed to look average yet can get intense when he has to so I think Jim Caviezel (The Count of Monte Cristo, Frequency) would be my first choice...and he can act!

    The last I had heard was Ryan Reynolds but that was a while back

    catching up with the board after a long absence (missed you guys, but life calls!) I think Tommy must be Caviezel's agent....

    I do see Dexter as a parallel to RJ. Running on a razor's edge, righting the oh so wrong. I do enjoy him, he is such a cut-up.

    The wonderful Gene Hackman, from his early years was a contender for the ultimate RJ, but Gene enjoyed playing the villian so much, you forget the "good" rough guys he played.

    Hi everybody! New here to the site, and RJ in general. I've only read The Tomb and Legacies, so in no way will I pretend to be an expert on F. Paul Wilson or RJ, not at this stage of the game.

    That said: I really hope, if the film comes to fruition, they pick a "normal" looking guy to play Jack. Maybe even an unknown. FPW stresses his "normal" looks and his ability to blend effortlessly into crowds. I don't feel some of the choices I'm hearing could accomplish that.

    Also, one of the things I like about RJ is his quirkiness. The fact that he's kind of a geek with the stuff he collects is endearing to me. I see myself in that and many of my friends, male and female, so I hope they don't transform Jack into some sort of ultra-cool, suave, ladies man--that's not the Jack I've come to know.

    Hollywood being what it is, we may see The Rock playing RJ with J-Lo playing Gia, and instead of the Rakoshi, he'll have to kill a cadre of Special Ops assassins with his bare hands to save Vicky. All without breaking a sweat.
