I think they should have tried Tom Hardy or even Keanu Reeves for the role as Reacher, instead of Cruise, but we'll see how this plays out. I'm not really that much into the Mission Impossible series, because frankly, Tom Cruise doesn't seem like an intelligence agent 'super-spy' type (he seems too stiff and uncomfortable in the role sometimes); he surprised me a little in M:I 3, though.

I know he's a TV star, but Jeffrey Donovan would have been a good choice too, in my honest opinion.
