What did you think of the Reacher clip? I am familiar with Alan Ritchson. I’ve seen him in shows like Smallville and Titans. I am glad the showrunners picked him to play this character. He fits the role much better than Tom Cruise. It’s like Tom’s version got the super-soldier serum and turned it into Alan’s. Don’t you think?
