Too bad, forums around the world were clogged with fanboy rage at Cruise’s casting as Lee Child’s literary hero ‘Jack Reacher’ – a former military police major and full time juggernaut. ’Jack Reacher‘ proved to be a decent-sized hit (pun intended) and a sequel is currently in production, so we take a look at some other casting outrages that had the fans furious at first, but eating their words in the end. In 2005 the knives were certainly out for Daniel Craig upon the announcement that he would replace Pierce Brosnan as James Bond.
The Golden Globes have rolled around once more, bestowing fame and fortune to the lucky few who manage to nab Hollywood’s second favourite award. With all that glory however comes dubious celebrity impersonators who make a living looking a bit like their idols… if you squint a bit.

Recently, People unleashed its honourable hunk of the year, naming David Beckham “The Sexiest Man Alive” for 2015. The 40-year-old soccer star is hubby to fashion designer (and former Spice Girl), Victoria Beckham, and the two have four kids together. The announcement was made Tuesday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and Beckham voiced his many thanks to his parents, hairdresser, stylist and Photoshop. Interestingly, in his interview with People, Beckham expressed how he never feels that he’s an “attractive, sexy man.” He also took to Instagram claiming he “thought he was past his sell by date.” Humbling. Beckham joins a lucky list of male celebrities that includes veteran actors, Hollywood bad boys and even some that have made headlines in peculiar ways. Yahoo Canada decided to take this momentous occasion to look back at some of your favourite (and perhaps forgotten) studs of decades past.We did not forget the likes of George Clooney or Johnny Depp in this rundown, but rather assume that everyone knows these two have made People’s list. If not, we’re sorry, they did – twice respectively. Other crowned names include Sean Connery, Matt Damon, Pierce Brosnan, Patrick Swayze and Bradley Cooper.
There is no movie stunt too impossible for Tom Cruise. The 53-year-old star seems to relish putting his body in harm’s way, especially when it comes to his role as special agent Ethan Hunt in the ‘Mission: Impossible’ series.
