Despite Paramount putting Tom Cruise front and center in all marketing for Jack Reacher, the real draw around these parts is Werner Herzog playing the villain of the action blockbuster. While the auteur showed up in a recent trailer, he’s now heavily featured in one of two new TV spots for Christopher McQuarrie‘s film.
