Tom Cruise Slammed Over New Role
Tom slammed over his short stature

Tom Cruise has been slammed by fans of the bestselling Jack
Reacher books, after he signed up to play the hero in the novels big screen
adaption, One Shot. Jack Reacher, who is a hulking ex-soldier, is to be played
by Tom but critics have branded him too small to play the popular fictional
character.

“It’s absolutely ridiculous,” cried one fan to Britain’s
Daily Star. “Reacher is huge and Tom Cruise is tiny. It’s the worst casting
decision ever.”

“I will not pay to see this movie,” spilled another fan
online. “The thought of casting little Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher makes me
sick.”

Lee Child, the book’s author, came to Tom’s rescue saying
that: “Reacher’s size in the books is a metaphor for an unstoppable force,
which Cruise portrays in his own way.” You tell ‘em Lee!
