Unlike previous actors who played the same role, Alan actually fits the physical description of Jack Reacher in the novels; The 38-year-old is physically how many readers will have imagined Lee Child’s no-nonsense, big 6’5″ hulk of creation in their mind’s eye while reading any of the 26 Reacher novels.

Alan on his role: “ I had seen some of the scripts, so I had an understanding of the tone of the show, but it was all about the books for me. As an actor, the first step that I take is to absorb as much material as I can that exists, whether that’s just the script or, in this case, I had 24 books to pore over. My job was reading these books, and it didn’t feel like work at all. I love the books and quickly became as big a fan as anybody. When I have so much material, and I’ve seen Reacher in so many situations, it really answers all the questions I could have about how he would treat a certain person or situation. It gave me a firm footing to get started with, and then the scripts were incredible as well. Nick Santora, our showrunner, did an amazing job adapting the book faithfully but also creating a really three-dimensional character in Reacher and those supporting characters, like Willa Fitzgerald and Malcolm Goodwin, who are just amazing talents for Roscoe and Finlay, and that trifecta. He really brought them to life in a way that bests the books.”

Amazon has renewed Alan Ritchson-fronted action drama series Reacher for a second season. The fast turnaround renewal comes three days after the streamer launched the Lee Child adaptation.
