LSU's Les Miles hopes to play villain in film opposite Tom Cruise

Iconic actor Tom Cruise was in attendance for LSU's victory over Florida in Tiger Stadium this past weekend. Sitting in AD Joe Alleva's booth, Cruise watched Leonard Fournette rush for 180 yards and Brandon Harris toss two touchdowns in the 35-28 victory. 

While Cruise was enjoying some high-quality SEC football, was he also scouting talent for his next film? 

LSU coach Les Miles threw his hat into the ring during his Monday news conference. According to Miles, "I'd be a good 'bad guy', I think, in a Jack Reacher movie."

The average movie villain is generally cunning, intelligent, calculated and a bit eccentric. Based on Miles' "Mad Hatter" persona, he may fit the bill quite well in this capacity.
