I've also been reading the series by Lee Child featuring the character Jack Reacher - a recent bout of illness saw me read three more, I think I may have about 7 or so to go. I really like this character, I guess the type goes back to the knight errant or even the Rangers of Lord of the Rings type of character, with a liberal dose of Dirty Harry to boot.

I was dismayed to learn that Tom Cruise has been cast to play this character - Lee Child, the series author, has said that with Cruise 'you get 90% of Reacher but 100% of the character', but in fact by my calculations Cruise is actually about 70% of Reacher at best, going by height and weight. Although I do't mind him as an actor, I can't see him delivering 130% that way.
