Not-so-tall Tom Cruise playing the six-foot-five Jack Reacher in 'One Shot' hasn't gone over well with fans of the Lee Child novel. The outcry over the casting is reminiscent of when he got flak for signing on to play a blond, androgynous bloodsucker in 1994's 'Interview With The Vampire.' Cruise tells Empire that he's aware of the brouhaha. " I'm very sensitive to it," he explained. "This is Lee's book and Lee's character. Him giving me his blessing is what made me do it. If he hadn't then I wouldn't have done it."
