Tom Cruise once again stars as Jack Reacher in the new movie Never Go Back.
After weathering the furore over his casting as Lee Child's 6-foot-5 blond muscle man in the 2012 film Jack Reacher, Tom Cruise set out to make the character his own in the sequel, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. "I love this character," Cruise says with a smile. "I love the iconic nature of this character. I like the physicality of the character. It's fun creating the kinds of stories that he has as he goes to different places."

Cruise also liked the way the novels keep the action grounded in reality. "When you read the books you just find yourself thinking that they're really satisfying," he says. "It's like the movies I watched in the '70s, and some from the '60s, the movies that you kind of look back on. Jack is the cool loner - it's very Western, very American. And I love the fact that today, especially in this digital age, he's someone who doesn't have a phone, he's off-grid. He walks into a place and he's enormously capable but just very human."

Director Stephan Elliott initially thought Guy Pearce was too handsome for a role in 'The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert'.
Of all the possible reasons why an actor might receive a "no" when auditioning for a part in the cut-throat world of movies, being "too handsome" must rank among the best of them. But that's exactly the fate that almost befell Guy Pearce before he won the part of Adam Whitely/Felicia Jollygoodfellow in The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
Guy Pearce: too pretty for Priscilla
Director Stephan Elliott recently told The Herald Sun that he had reservations about Pearce starring in the 1994 comedy-drama, which follows the adventures of three drag queens, because the young Guy was just so darn good looking:

There's a loose charm to this comedy that disarms the audience, raising smiles instead of laughter as three nutty characters swirl around each other. But writer-director Andrew Bujalski (Computer Chess) seems happy to just let things meander without much sense of momentum and no real underlying point. So the characters become less endearing the more we get to know them.
It's set in a gym in Austin, Texas, where the dim owner Trevor (Guy Pearce) has a dream to create the ultimate holistic fitness centre, a goal constantly belittled by his sharp-tongued employee Kat (Coby Smulders), a fitness-obsessed personal trainer with whom he once had a brief fling. Their newest client is the recently wealthy Danny (Kevin Corrigan), who is just looking for ways to spend money and kill time. But Kat once again blurs professional boundaries, and Danny sacks her. Trevor steps in, offering Danny some whole-life training, which inadvertently convinces Danny to invest in his super-gym, working through a quirky lawyer (Giovanni Ribisi) and an estate agent (Constance Zimmer) who happens to be Trevor's current squeeze. What could possibly go wrong?
Bujalski reveals details about each character slowly, with back-stories and flashbacks thrown randomly into the unfocussed narrative. The film has a brisk pace, but is fairly aimless until more details are revealed about these people. Pearce is very funny as the too-serious Trevor, and his earnestness is the perfect foil for the cynical Kat, who is played with stinging cynicism by the up-for-it Smulders. The problem is that while their mutual physical attraction is believable, the underlying romance isn't. And while Corrigan completes the triangle nicely, he's so disinterested in everything and everyone that it's difficult to imagine him ever developing a proper friendship. Thankfully, the interaction is packed with barbed wit and some intriguingly dark emotion.

Many people would love to be rich and still have plenty of free time, but for Danny (Kevin Corrigan), it is a living hell. He may be newly rich, but he's also recently divorced, and his bank account does little to help him in the dating game. When he decides to attend a fitness class, he meets Trevor (Guy Pearce) - the lively and energetic personal trainer. He also meets Kat, (Cobie Smulders), and finds himself immediately attracted to her. But when the three of them are forced into a professional relationship with one another, it is their personal feelings which begin to clash.
