Joel who? Oh, yeah, the Altered Carbon guy (and Hanna, and...)

He'd be great, the other suggestions are muscle-bound thug types, not very intelligent-looking. Reacher is smart, and dedicated.
Which was why Cruise did a great job. I've read all the books and wanted to hate the casting ("He's half the size! Are the tickets 50% off too?"). I acted the same way when Tim Burton cast his Batman as... Mr. Mom?!?

But I loved the Cruise movies, because his Reacher had the intelligence and the intensity, and a laser-sharp sense of justice.
So hope they find a big guy that can pull that off.
