Only one person should play Thomas Magnum in the film version of the popular 1980s television series "Magnum, P.I.," says Tom Selleck, Parade Magazine reports.
And that person? Tom Selleck.
There are rumors that actors Matthew McConaughey and Ashton Kutcher have been considered, but that doesn’t fly with Selleck, who starred in the TV show, the story says.
"Look, I’m not being egotistical, but ‘Magnum’s’ in about 100 countries," Selleck said. "They can’t just buy a title and stick some younger guy in it. These things are quite real to audiences."
