Ritchson told to The Hollywood Reporter that his upcoming slate was full for at least the next couple of years with, at most, six days off in between projects, including travel. Despite his busy schedule, the actor intimated he would play Jack Reacher for as long as he could. “I owe it to the audience to explore as many of these books as my body will allow, and I owe it to the people that took a shot on me when I was a huge risk for them. They have given me a real career,” he said. Amazon and MGM Studios chief Jennifer Salke echoed Ritchson’s sentiments about the length of his tenure as Reacher. “We’ll have Alan as long as he will play Jack Reacher. No end in sight for that. Hopefully, that’s for a very, very, very long time,” she said.Reacher and O'Donnell stand in a police interrogation room

“To me, Reacher has and always will be a fight to prove that they made the right decision,” Ritchson stated. “On set, I am always thinking, ‘How can I work hard enough to make them feel good?’ It’ll never go away. What got me ready for Reacher was all the losses that I took early on.”

He’s inventive, and he’s got all the gadgets, but he’s super smart. I want to be that guy. And, also, to have a cave with, like hypercars, sports cars, and awesome motorcycles.”
