Jim from The Office is on a mission to make everyone forget he was Jim from The Office. And even I have to admit he’s been doing an OK job lately, first by directing and starring in A Quiet Place and now by starring as Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan in an upcoming new series on Amazon Prime.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is a new screen version of the character played by such actors as Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck, and Chris Pine on the big screen, and now he’s making his way to television. And, surprise, the show will be part of the noble genre I refer to as “spy stuff,” per the official synopsis:
“Jack Ryan, an up-and-coming CIA analyst, is thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time. He soon uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale.”
