Reacher season 3 has unveiled a first look at its man-mountain of a villain.

Portrayed by Black Widow actor Olivier Richters, bearded newcomer Paulie stands at over 7 feet tall and can be seen in a behind-the-scenes picture on Instagram as shooting on the next season continues.

Seen crossing out Reacher’s name on his trailer’s front door and replacing it with his own, a caption reads: “REACHER isn’t going to like that. @thedutchgiant has arrived to Season 3.”

Prime Video’s third season adapts the seventh book in author Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series, Persuader, which was published in 2003.

In its pages, “deranged bodybuilder bodyguard” Paulie is described by Reacher as being: (via Forbes): “A very big guy. I stand six feet five inches tall and I have to center myself quite carefully to walk through a standard 30-inch doorway.

“This guy was at least six inches taller than me and probably 10 inches wider across the shoulders. He probably outweighed me by 200 pounds. Maybe by more.”

Reacher stars Alan Ritchson in the title role, but Rictchson recently revealed that he could have been famous for another role if only he had taken his audition seriously.

Speaking to Men’s Health, Ritchson said he auditioned for the role of Thor, but he was more concerned with looking the part rather than acting the part.

“I didn’t take it seriously,” he explained. “I was like, ‘They’ll throw me the part if I look like the guy. Nobody really cares about acting’.”

However, the casting team said Ritchson hadn’t shown he had “the craft”, and the part went to Chris Hemsworth.
