Personal Quote:

[on his character Jack Reacher in Jack Reacher (2012)] Reacher is such a great character. He doesn't have a cell phone, he doesn't have email. He's off the grid. He pays for things in cash.

Trivia:

He became good friends with Sean Penn and Timothy Hutton during the making of Taps (1981). See more »
