George Clooney: The Next Jack Ryan?

Source: The Daily Beast

Could George Clooney be the next Jack Ryan? According to The Daily Beast, this could be a possibility. Jack Ryan is a character from the series of books by author Tom Clancy. There have been three actors who portrayed Clancy’s character on screen. Alec Baldwin was the first to portray Jack Ryan in “The Hunt for the Red October”. Harrison Ford took over for two films, “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger” and in an effort to relaunch the franchise, Ben Affleck took over the part in “The Sum of All Fears” (2002).

I could see George Clooney as the next Jack Ryan but then again has this franchise’s ship sailed? I guess we have to wait for the trailer. 🙂
