TV’s ‘Magnum, P.I.’ Says There’s Only One Person Who Should Play Magnum in the Film Version

Nov 8, 2010  •  Post A Comment

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."


  1. Tom Selleck is sooo right about these unnecessary remakes. Hollywood should take a listen.
    “The Fugitive” is one of the best of the TV to movie remakes and it didn’t star a younger actor.

  2. I would pay extra to see a ‘Magnum” movie with Tom Selleck. I wouldn’t cross the street to see a remake without him, I don’t care who they picked. I like Selleck’s idea to make the movie about what has happend to everyone since the last epiosde.

  4. What a GREAT idea! Magnum, Higgins, Rick, TC, everyone. I will pay to see that too. I’d be too let down to not see Tom Selleck as Magnum. Why bother? Let’s face it, we fell in live with the character because of Tom Selleck. I’ve been a Selleck fan ever since! Love it all. The Sackett movies, Jessie Stone movies, & Blue Bloods are all favorites. I’m glad he’s back on TV every week with Blue Bloods. I don’t miss it.

  5. No one replaces Tom Selleck period.

  6. I’m not a fan of either Selleck or Magnum P.I. but have to agree with his assessment.
    Without him, it’s just NOT Magnum!!
