Tom Clancy Movies, From Worst To Best
Tom Clancy, who had written over a dozen best-selling spy novels (and co-written more than a dozen additional novels) and overseen a vast, hugely profitable videogame empire, has died today at the age of 66. For an author who was prolific, and whose works were so inherently cinematic, usually involving large-scale tactical military strikes, a shockingly small amount of his material was actually developed for the screen. This December (unless it gets pushed) sees the release of Paramount's "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," in which Chris Pine takes over the role of CIA analyst Jack Ryan, a character previously inhabited by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck.

Hint: It Was Probably Harrison FordIn a column for the Huffington Post, Alec Baldwin turned what was supposed to be a piece telling Charlie Sheen to show some remorse and beg to get his job back on "Two And A Half Men," into a much more interesting story about how he lost out on the Jack Ryan franchise after "The Hunt For Red October."
