  • Alan Ritchson cast as Jack Reacher in TV series

Alan Ritchson has lined up his next TV role, and it's a big one.

After the news of his casting was announced, Ritchson tweeted: "I guess my joke about not fitting in bathtubs a couple weeks ago really killed at amazonprimevideo" - an apparent reference to a scene in Jack Reacher.

Season 1 of the Jack Reacher series will cover the events of the novel, The Killing Floor, which was released in 1997 and spawned a series that has sold over 100 million books.

And since you're probably wondering, Ritchson - who plays Hawk/Hank Hall on DC Universe's "Titans" - is listed at 6 feet 4 inches tall and 235 pounds, considerately larger than Tom Cruise's 5 feet 7 inches frame that drew the ire from fans of Lee Child's books (and Child himself).

The series is based on the Lee Child book series.

Ritchson is also well-known for his one season run on Blood Drive, as well as playing superhero Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman on The CW's Smallville.

"Scorpion" creator Nick Santora will serve as writer, executive producer and showrunner on the upcoming series, which was given a script-to-series to commitment last summer. "Lee Child's Jack Reacher book series is a global phenomenon with one of entertainment's most well-known heroes, and a ideal fit for Amazon Studios' slate of bold, character-driven series", Amazon Studios boss Jennifer Salke said back in January.

Catching Fire vet Alan Ritchson has officially signed on to play the titular role in Amazon Studios' upcoming series adaptation of Jack Reacher. "He is the pulse of Reacher". "By now I know these guys, and Reacher is in the flawless hands, believe me".

Currently, there's no word on when we can except the Jack Reacher series to premiere via Amazon Prime.
