ALAN RITCHSON IS best known for his role in Prime Video’s hit action-thriller-mystery series Reacher, where he plays the titular Jack Reacher—a large man who’s good at solving mysteries, fighting on behalf of the little guy, and kicking all sorts of ass. In the time since the show, which is based on author Lee Child’s Jack Reacher book series, Ritchson has done a number of interviews, showing the world who he is and what he believes in.

The latest, a cover story for The Hollywood Reporter, finds the towering action hero (who this month will also appear alongside Henry Cavill in Guy Ritchie’s Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare) explaining why faith remains important to his life, but showing issue with the way some of his fellow Christians today have become “vitriolic.” He also expressed concern with how one particular person has been rallied around: former President Donald Trump.

“Trump is a rapist and a con man, and yet the entire Christian church seems to be treat him like he’s their poster child, and it’s unreal,” he says. “I don’t understand it.”

In the same cover story, Ritchson also addressed an Instagram post of his from 2020 that recently went viral, where he wears a t-shirt that reads “Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.” Taylor was a 26-year-old Black woman who was shot and killed in her apartment back in in March 2020 by police in Louisville, Kentucky as part of a botched drug raid.

The image of the Reacher star gained traction due to the show’s popularity in some conservative circles, but he didn’t back down from the message his t-shirt bore when pressed on it nearly four years later by THR.

“That was a tragic case,” he said. “Cops get away with murder all the time, and the fact that we can’t really hold them accountable for their improprieties is disturbing to me… I mean, you shouldn’t have to spend more time getting an education as a hairstylist than as a cop who’s armed with a deadly weapon.”
