Tom Cruise’s latest movie project, Jack Reacher 2, has found its villain. 

Patrick Heusinger, who stars on Bravo’s Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, is in talks to star as the bad guy in the movie, which is being directed by Ed Zwick, THR has confirmed.

Cobie Smulders, Danika Yarosh, Aldis Hodge are already in various stages of talks to board the movie, which is heading towards a fall shoot, as well.

Zwick wrote the screenplay, which adapts Lee Child's book "Never Go Back," with longtime collaborator Marshall Herskovitz.

The part is a rather big break for Heusinger, who apart from the Bravo series has appeared in shows such as Castle and Revolution and Gossip Girl.
