Tom Clancy dies: Who is the best Jack Ryan? [Poll]

The longer Jack Ryan is around, the younger the actors playing him become.

Tom Clancy's singular character creation has anchored the plots of five movies, starting with 1990's "The Hunt for Red October" and continuing with "Jack Ryan: Shadow One," which opens Christmas Day.

Four different actors have played the CIA operative over the course of the films.
