"Jack Reacher" is coming, and the millions of fans of the excellent book series around the world are both eager and perhaps a bit wary about Tom Cruise stepping into the lead role of the bruising ex-military investigator turned drifter. There has been lots of concern about the actor not being the right physical build of Reacher, but for author Lee Child, he wouldn't have it any other way.

We really don't recall Lee Child's Jack Reacher books being quasi-comedies, but in its transition to the big screen, the character has become shorter, more fashionable and armed with an arsenal of one liners. If people were complaining before, it won't stop here.

Last Christmas, Tom Cruise proved, after a difficult few years, that he's still got it with "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," a surprisingly thrilling actioner that proved to be, by some distance, the best film of the franchise so far, which further paid off by becoming the biggest movie of the season.

Don't like Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher? Well how about Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman, Vince Vaughn, Will Smith or Jamie Foxx? Author Lee Child tells Playboy that those were some of the names that were "interested" at one time or another. And while fans have cried foul that Cruise doesn't match the physique that the writer laid out for Reacher in his novels, Child is candid about the process of selecting Cruise, and is ultimately thrilled he took the part.

As the poster for "Parker" with Jason Statham proved, sometimes you just gotta roll with what people know. And just as a poster for a Jason Statham movie demands that Jason Statham be featured prominently on it so audiences know that Jason Statham is in it, the same rule applies to Tom Cruise.

To say that Paramount is having a pretty horrible 2012, which unfortunately coincides with their 100th anniversary, would be an understatement. With two movies bumped to 2013 -- "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" and "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" -- while "World War Z" goes through a pretty public and ugly reshoot and rewrite process to try and salvage a picture that currently is only half good and has Brad Pitt and director Marc Forster at odds, it's no surprise honchos are looking to find any silver lining they can. And it looks like Tom Cruise may be that hope.
