There's a Jack Reacher TV show that will be out soon BUT Tom Cruise isn't a part of it and the reason according to the author of the story is (first of all) Tom Cruise's height. He's 5'7" & he's too short because according to the books Jack Reacher is 6'5" with hands as big as dinner plates. The author also says that Cruise didn't have the "physicality," needed for the role which is weird to hear because we've all seen Cruise hanging off the sides of planes for stunts for Mission Impossible. BUT this author is now out with his 23rd book in the series so I guess he can say whatever he wants?

Amy Schumer was forced to cancel her Dallas tour stop on Thursday after being hospitalized for severe morning sickness.
Along with an Instagram photo of herself on a stretcher, the pregnant comedian wrote, “Texas I am so deeply sorry. I have been really looking forward to these shows. I have to reschedule. I am in the hospital. I’m fine. Baby’s fine but everyone who says the 2nd trimester is better is not telling the full story.”
This is the first child for Amy and hubby Chris Fischer.

Iconic Toy Store Returns To New York City -
If you plan to visit the Big Apple during the holiday season, you’ll be able to once again visit a legendary store.

The most luxurious item on sale could be a child-size, drivable Mercedes Benz encrusted with 44,000 Swarovski crystals. Base price: $25,000.

Batkid Is In Remission Five Years After His Crime Fighting Wish Is Granted -
Five years ago, BatKid raced around San Francisco in a Batmobile defusing a bomb and saving the city from a supervillian.
Thousands of residents joined with city leaders, police and firefighters to stage the grand scale Make-A-Wish dream of the young leukemia patient. In case you don’t remember, even International Space Station astronauts and President Obama cheered little Miles on.
Miles Scott is now 10-years-old and in full remission from cancer, living with his family in northern California's Siskiyou County. Today, Miles enjoys science and robotics and plays baseball, and helps on the family farm.
BatKid's adventures inspired people around the world and proved a major boon for the Make-A-Wish Foundation which continues to fulfill the dreams of sick children. To learn more about Miles' story, check out the film produced from that day, "Batkid Begins."
