Tom Selleck Hates Signing 'Magnum, P.I.' Poster Featuring Him In A Hammock

October 24th, 2011 9:10am EDT
Tom Selleck Magnum PI
Tom Selleck is haunted by a "Magnum, P.I." poster he still wishes he hadn't agreed to be photographed for because it's the one fans seem to want signed more than any other.

The ageing hunk admits he was reluctant to pose for the Hawaiian hammock-themed shoot but signed on to be "a nice guy."

And he's regretted his decision ever since.

He explains, "They put me in a hammock between two palm trees and I had on a purple Hawaiian shirt... and they gave me one of those pineapples that are cut off with a big straw and an umbrella.

"I said, 'I don't wanna do this', and they said, 'Oh, come on,...

Who Aced The 2010-11 TV Season? (Hint: It's Not NBC)

June 4th, 2011 3:30pm EDT
The Voice
The 2010-2011 TV season is officially over. The ratings are in. If there is one surprise, it’s that last year’s top five shows were all up in viewers this year. With hefty viewer erosion in recent years, that’s nothing short of a miracle.

Most other veteran shows, however, saw a drop-off in viewers. There are some exceptions, however, such as ‘Modern Family,’ which saw very healthy ratings in its second year, particularly in the 18-49 demo.

The stats didn’t change much from last year. CBS won the season in total viewers with 11.6 million. It’s the eighth time in nine years the netwo...

Magnum P.I.-turned-NYPD Commissioner Tom Selleck tops the list of cops, but CBS' rookie hit has also gotten Donnie Wahlberg — who traded NKOTB for the LAPD in NBC's underrated 2002-2003 crime drama Boomtown — back on the beat as his son, hotshot detective Danny Reagan. Meanwhile, Nicholas Turturro, who served seven seasons as Det. James Martinez on ABC's NYPD Blue, has rejoined the force as Sgt. Anthony Renzulli, the seen-it-all partner of newbi...

Tom Selleck Warns Movie Bosses To Treat 'Magnum' With Respect

October 13th, 2010 11:15pm EDT
Tom Selleck
Tom Selleck is urging movie executives keen to adapt his hit TV series "Magnum P.I." into a film to tread carefully - because the show is too important to become another shoot-'em-up blockbuster.

The actor admits he keeps hearing about a film version of the hit 1980s show but he hasn't been asked to be a part of it.

And he's reluctant to give any such project the thumbs up until he knows for sure it will honor the hit TV series and not mock it or his character.

He tells TV Guide magazine, "My fear is, we see too many examples of studios buying the rights to a franchise, then spending $10...

Mike & Molly, Mon. Sept. 20, 9:30/8:30 CST -- America's obesity epidemic has left a lot us a bit fluffier, and "Mike & Molly" might be CBS's attempt to deliver a show we can relate to.

The main characters, played by Billy Gardell ("Yes, Dear") and Melissa McCarthy ("Gilmore Girls"), meet at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting, fall for each other, and deal with the modern-day problems overweight couples face.

Tom Selleck's New Show 'Blue Bloods' Won't Stop 'Jesse Stone'

Next week, Tom Selleck’s new TV series Blue Bloods premieres on CBS. The commitment to a new weekly drama won’t hurt his other job though. Selleck promises more Jesse Stone movies while he’s on Blue Bloods.

“Number seven is ready to go,” Selleck told the Television Critics Association this summer. “It's called Innocents Lost, e-n-t-s. I made it real clear that I wasn't going give up Jesse, so we're writing number eight.”

Sales of the last Jesse Stone DVD haven’t hurt Selleck’s case. “My boss Helen Verno, just sent me a note saying that No Remorse, the last one that just aired, is Number...

Tom Selleck is back in a weekly series this fall in CBS’s Blue Bloods. He plays a New York City police commissioner with two cop sons and a prosecutor daughter. This is was the sort of juicy dynamic that got Selleck to return to the world where he once played Magnum P.I.

“Conflicts are interesting for me,” Selleck told the Television Critics Association at a press conference today. “You can’t be more conflicted than a police commissioner who’s got a prosecuting attorney for a daughter and two sons who are cops on the street. From a command standpoint, that’s going to be a big conflict in t...

Making his new movie Killers made Ashton Kutcher feel a little bit insecure. In the film, Kutcher faces off against hunky legend Tom Selleck. Selleck plays his tough father-in-law, with that trademark moustache we’ve known since Magnum P.I. Kutcher tried to level the playing field a little, but admitted defeat.

“I have been trying to grow that mustache since I could grow facial hair,” Kutcher said. “I can’t grow a mustache. It’s pretty sad, if I attempt to.”

In the film, Kutcher’s character tries his hardest to win over his wife (Katherine Heigl)’s disapproving father. In real life, Kutch...

TV and movie star Tom Selleck has his sights set on Broadway - almost a decade after he made his theatre debut in New York.

The actor was a big hit in A Thousand Clowns in 2001 and he has been keen to get back onstage ever since - but his film and TV career and his sideline as an avocado farmer in California have kept him too busy.

He says, "I'll probably do a Broadway play soon. There's a lot of possibilities but it requires time which I'm happy to say I don't have right now.

"As much as I enjoyed doing my first Broadway play, my first play of any kind back in 2001, I haven't had ...

80s Vs. 90s: Which Decade Was The Best In Entertainment?

Madonna
Eighties and Nineties nostalgia are running rampant in pop culture right now. Television networks and film companies are resurrecting TV shows and movies like 90210, Melrose Place, Halloween, and Transformers. This obsession with the 80s and 90s have lead to TV specials and debates about which decade is better. Both provided us with fascinating films to watch, memorable music to listen to, and new forms of entertainment that we still use today. But when it comes to entertainment, which decade was better?

Celebrities Trying To Bring Back The Mustache

February 6th, 2009 11:51am EST
Robert Downey Jr.
Let's be honest, men's fashion isn't nearly as much fun as women's, especially when it comes to getting all gussied up in formal garb. For men, the pot can pretty much be boiled down to three basic variables: 1. Tie shape 2. To cummerbund or not to cummerbund and 3. Level of fashion bravado. So it is totally understandable for male celebrities to become jaded with the limited realm of prosaic male attire and seek other methods of adding a little snazzle dazzle to their personal senses of style.

Many men dabble in self-expression via varying facial hair patterns - a.k.a. "manscaping." ...

Harrison Ford's Seven Best Films (Not Including 'Star Wars')

Harrison Ford is, without question, one of the biggest box office stars of all time. With the release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on Thursday it couldn't be a better time to take a look back on the seven best movies of Ford's career.

We purposely left the Star Wars trilogy off the list considering those are not really "Harrison Ford movies" and quite an entity unto themselves. Plus, we do not need every movie on this list being a "Star Wars" or "Indiana Jones" movie. At times we do like to be challenged.

A Lost Art: Top TV Opening Credit Sequences

January 11th, 2008 11:23am EST
The Cosby Show
The television opening credit sequence is truly an art form. Frankly, it is hard to believe that it has never been considered as a category for any of the major award shows. It should be. An excellent sequence can make a mediocre series good, a good series great, and a great series…well, you get the idea.

Okay, so maybe the above statement is a little bit of a stretch. Still, opening sequences can be pretty entertaining. They may be a dying art form these days, but that is all the more reason to celebrate the very pinnacle of achievement in the field. There have been many great ...

2009 is upon us, bringing with it all the hope that new year's usually bring. Usually, this hope is for health, happiness, and prosperity, and that is exactly how it should be. This year, however, I have an additional hope - or I should say, I had an additional hope - that Hollywood wouldn't soil our planet with films that make me wish my eyes had been burned out in some kind of electrical accident. Alas, ever the Cubs fan, I must wait for next year. Until then, I take solace in the fact that I may save you the pain of sitting through these movies.
