Reacher's Producer Told Alan Ritchson Not To Reach Out To Tom Cruise

Reacher's Producer Told Alan Ritchson Not To Reach Out To Tom Cruise

“Reacher” season 2 is set to debut this December and it will be interesting to see how well the series fares in a post-lockdown market. But you can pretty much guarantee hardcore Jack Reacher fans will be watching either way, having finally been given an on-screen version of the ex-military police officer that’s actually familiar to them.

Meanwhile, Tom Cruise is too busy launching himself off cliffs and fighting on top of trains traveling 60 miles per hour in “Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning” to care about what’s happening with the character he previously played. Still, as Alan Ritchson explained on an episode of The Rich Eisen Show, Cruise had done a lot to raise awareness of the Jack Reacher character among the wider public, which is partly why he wrote him a letter. The actor said:

“I just felt it was the respectful thing to do. You know, ‘Dear Tom, Mr. Cruise, I appreciate what you did for the brand.’ You know, I think a big part of why “Reacher”‘s so successful is because of the eyes that he brought to it. I mean, say what you want about whether he was right for Reacher or not, most people know about Reacher because of Mr. Cruise, you know?”

Unfortunately, Ritchson never got to send his heartfelt missive after Cruise’s old pal Don Granger stepped in.
