Jack Ryan franchise

Released: Patriot Games (1992); Clear and Present Danger (1994)

U.S. box office gross (cumulative): $205.5 million

Though Ford is probably the actor most closely associated with Jack Ryan, he’s only one of three actors to play author Tom Clancy’s durable Cold War hero.

Ben Affleck, in 2002’s The Sum of all Fears.
