Have you seen Valkyrie?
I certainly wouldn't say he's "great" in everything he does, but he's 100% wrong for Reacher (and not just because of the foot difference in height). I'm just not a huge fan of his newer, more serious work.
I'll still see this movie because it looks cool, but for me, I think someone else in this role would be a lot better.
