'Reacher' star says he imitated his crime-fighting character while on date with his wife and seeing crook breaking into car

"Reacher" star Alan Ritchson said during an interview that he actually imitated his show's crime-fighting character, Jack Reacher, while on date with his wife when they saw a crook breaking into car.

What are the details?

Ritchson broke it all down in a clip posted last week from "etalk," a celebrity program that's part of Canada's CTV network.

“We were on a date in Montreal walking to a very nice dinner all dressed up, and we saw somebody breaking into a car. And, like, she put it together before I did," Ritcher recalled to the program, noting that there was "glass everywhere" and a crook was "rooting through somebody’s stuff and came out with all these bags."

He added that his wife said, "I think he’s breaking into that car." Richter's response? "By gosh, I think you’re right."

Apparently, Richter's wife had an inkling of what might happen next.

"And she goes, ‘Don’t do it!’ And I was like, ‘Instant Reacher Mode,’ and I was like, ‘Some justice has to be done here.’ And I chased that dude like four blocks until I tossed him into a building and the cops came,” Richter added.

In the end, he said his wife was "very mad at me for not just, like, taking her on our date," but Richter noted that "we got there eventually."

Anything else?

According to the Internet Movie Database, the hit Amazon series "Reacher" focuses on a retired Military Police officer who's arrested for a murder he didn't commit — and who "finds himself in the middle of a deadly conspiracy full of dirty cops, shady businessmen, and scheming politicians. With nothing but his wits, he must figure out what is happening in Margrave, Georgia."

Tom Cruise played the same character in two movies released in 2012 and 2016.
