“I see some real genius in your flying, Maverick, but I can’t say that in there. I was afraid that everyone in “I see some real genius in your flying, Maverick, but I can’t say that in there. I was afraid that everyone in the tax trailer would see right through me, and I just don’t want anyone to know that I’ve fallen for you.”
Maverick was a true Top Gun.
30 years later it’s still a great movie.
A suave and cocky Tom Cruise was perfectly cast in the role and the movie will go down as one of the classics.
Will Jack Reacher still be getting late night replays and memorable quotes 30 years later?
I doubt it.
Cruise can carry an action movie like nobody’s business.
But Jack Reacher is meant to be 6″5′ and an awesome street fighter.
A man so physically imposing that he’s laid back to the point of being horizontal with the knowledge he can pummel anyone without breaking a sweat.
Reacher: big, relaxed. Cruise: small, intense.
Good actor, bad casting.
The price is less than stellar results.
You see this in business all the time.
Entrepreneurial creatives trying to play administrative roles in their business.
Methodical systems contorting themselves into creative problem solvers.
It’s painful to play roles that aren’t natural but you feel there is no one else to do it but you must.
I am not a fan of accounting and the running the company piece of my own business.
If I was forced to play that role I would rush through, do a half assed job and costly mistakes would be made.
So we have a system. A system that frees me up to play the role I’m good at.
If you want to be cast in your perfect role then I can show you how.
