Lee Child was on Turner Classic Movies last night as the special programmer for the evening. He was interesting talking about not thinking about being a writer in the early part of his life.

Back to Tom Cruise and the movie, well it will be interesting to see how believable Tom is in the role. Undoubtedly, many people will see the movie and not have read the book. Personally, it won't matter to me. Then others like yourself may possibly hate his portrayal for being short and/or other reasons.

Speaking of the Green Mile and Levar Burton, I might even have believed him in the role. I didn't read the book. Didn't know he was described as a living Hulk type character. I really get into the fantasy of movies. And, I don't matter if one is "based on actual events" and then takes liberty to make the movie more appealing.
