Watch Lee Child’s Cameo in Jack Reacher

If you saw last year’s “Jack Reacher”, Christopher McQuarrie’s adaptation of the Lee Child novel “One Shot” starring Tom Cruise as the laconic former lawman turned road warrior/vigilante, then you probably saw a scene early in the film when Reacher is talking to lawyer Helen Rodin (Rosamund Pike’s character) in the police station.

In that scene, you see a uniformed cop in the background. That’s author Lee Child doing a cameo in the film. If you missed that scene, or didn’t know who it was, you can watch it again below.

Paramount has “Jack Reacher” set to hit DVD/Blu-ray this May 7th, 2013 (see the box cover art below) and they’ve released the clip featuring Child’s cameo. It’s a good thing Child is sitting down for the cameo because he’s like 7 feet tall or something.

I’m still hoping Cruise will get a “Jack Reacher 2” up and running. I though the did a bang-up job in the role, shortcomings, er, notwithstanding.
