TOM CRUISE: 'I WOULD NOT HAVE PLAYED JACK REACHER IF AUTHOR CHILD WAS N=

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 - Ot Supportive' Tom Cruise has assured fans of the Jack Reacher books he would not have played the title role in the adaptation of author Lee Child's One Shot if the writer had not given the movie star his blessing.

Cruise's casting has been somewhat controversial because he looks nothing like Child's leading man, who is described as being almost a foot taller than the Top Gun star in the books.

But the actor signed on for the role after first checking with the author if he was good to go.

He says, "Had he said, 'Look, I'd rather you not (play Reacher)', I would not have played the character... (The height) was a characteristic for

me. It's not the character."
