Amazon’s announcement today that it picked up Jack Reacher to series "doesn’t mention Jack Ryan or the potential for confusing viewers about these different spy thriller shows with similar names, but that’s probably not as much of a problem as it seems like it could be," says Sam Barsanti. "After all, if someone wants to watch one show about a military-type guy named Jack doing cool stuff, there’s no reason to think they won’t watch the other one." Meanwhile, Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke vowed to find a big-statured star for the Jack Reacher series -- unlike 5-foot-7 Tom Cruise. “We really are determined to find somebody who can embody that character for Lee (Child) and for all of us," she said at the TV press tour. "We think that is a great thing and that’s what we want to do. So, you may see us take our time really making sure we find that person whether they exist in our purview or they are a new discovery from somewhere. So, we’re going to do an extensive exploration of who could step into those big, big shoes."
