Just wanted to wish you all the best with the filming of Jack Reacher. Just one thing - we bagged Tom Cruise before we'd read a single word of the books (come on, have you seen how long they are? Fuck that), and it turns out that Reacher's meant to be 6 foot 5 and Cruise is only 5' 7". Awk-ward! Can you do something about that? Hope so, because if not Ratner's outside claiming he can do it for half what you're costing us.

Thanks for your words of encouragement. Don't worry - I watched the extras on the Lord Of The Rings DVDs and I've got this covered. I'll simply place everything and everyone else in the film way in the distance. That way Tom will look twice as tall as everyone else! Job done.
