Tom Selleck, perhaps best know for his role as Hawaii based detective Thomas Sullivan Magnum, wants to reprise his role in the upcoming Rawson Marshall Thurber directed film revival. The film which is still in pre-production has been a hotbed for casting rumors. Most recently the rumors involved Matthew McConaughey. Happily, that rumor was squashed, which means they are still looking. Although Selleck does not understand why, according to Tom:
They haven’t called, they haven’t written. I keep hearing they’re developing one but I don’t know whether I’m going to be in it… but they keep doing (fan) polls, and I keep winning them.
So what do you think? Would you pay your hard earned clams to see Mr. Selleck play the role that made him, or is it time for the 64 year old actor to pass the torch? I hope they are at least considering Selleck. I would have thought age was a factor as well, but hey, it worked for Harrison Ford as Indy
So what is your dream Magnum casting. Would you like for them to try to pull together as much of the original cast as possible? Or would you re-boot? If I cannot get an original Selleck “Magnum” my cast would be:
Jason Lee as Magnum, Chi McBride as T.C., James Kyson Lee as Rick, and David Strathairn as Higgins
What would Magnum movie cast look like?
