George Clooney is reportedly interested to follow the footsteps of Ben Affleck in portraying the fictional government worker who appeared in many Tom Clancy's novel series.

George Clooney eyes to star as Tom Clancy's notable character, Jack Ryan. Rumors emerged after a source informed The Daily Beast that the 48-year-old actor has expressed his interest to portray the character, last portrayed by Ben Affleck in 2002, when and if Paramount attempts to revive the Tom Clancy series.

Despite the source's claim, it will be premature to state that Clooney will portray Ryan, especially because several actors, such as Ryan Gosling and James Franco, have also been linked to the possible revival of the character since 2008. If Clooney were indeed to be the new Jack Ryan, he will add his name to the list of actors having portrayed the heroic character, they are Alec Baldwin in "Red October", Harrison Ford in "Patriot Games" and "Clear and Present Danger", as well as Ben Affleck in "The Sum of All Fears".

Since Affleck's portrayal of Ryan in 2002, Paramount hasn't made another movie with Ryan as the main character allegedly because the movie did not score in overseas market. However, reports were coming in last December that the studio has hired Oscar nominated screenwriter Hossein Amini to write a screenplay and was in negotiation with "Spider-Man" director Sam Raimi for a new Jack Ryan movie, untitled Jack Ryan project. Though so, the studio hasn't officially released any confirmation about this plan.
