Skip to comments.Clooney to revive 80s tv icon (Hollywood outdoes itself ruining Magnum PI)
Posted on 01/27/2006 2:58:24 PM PST by presidio9
George Clooney is being hotly-tipped to play Magnum PI in a new movie.
Film bosses believe the handsome star would be perfect as the suave private investigator, played by Tom Selleck in the classic TV show.
A source is quoted in Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying:
"He is a big fan of the original series. The part is his if he wants it." Meanwhile, George - who split from on/off girlfriend Lisa Snowdon last year - recently revealed he thinks 2006 will be the year he settles down.
The 44-year-old heartthrob - renowned for keeping his romantic life under wraps - said: "I want to be married with six kids this year. I want six little sextuplets around."
The star also admitted he believes in love at first site, saying: "It happened to my parents. My dad asked my mum on a date and asked her to marry him immediately.
"They're still together so I know love at first sight can work."
You'd better be a chick if you're posting beecake photos like that on my thread.
hmmm, does george clooney count as a one?
Seems stupidity does not get covered by plastic surgery.
I wish you'd waited until after I ate.
I wasn't saying Magnum was cheesy. I just meant that shows such as the Dukes of Hazzard and Miami Vice don't need to be remade into bad movies.
Take notes, could be used in a documentary on how to take a successful idea and crush it into absolute drek.
Isn't Chuck Norris a Pubbie too?
Ping list for the discussion of the politics and social (and sometimes nostalgic) aspects that directly effects Generation Reagan / Generation-X (Those born from 1965-1981) including all the spending previous generations (i.e. The Baby Boomers) are doing that Gen-X and Y will end up paying for.
Freep mail me to be added or dropped. See my home page for details and previous articles.
How dare they think they can fill Magnum's shoes with Clooney! puke yuck disgusting!
Re Magnum the movie, any word on which major male character will be turned into a swishy girly man? Hollyweird has to have at least one in every film these days. Maybe they will have Higgins and Magnum getting it on. (Barf!)
The heck with the terrorism threats.............THIS really upsets me!!!!!! LOL
Selleck has always been one of my favorites. Haven't been to a movie in years and this is another reason not to go.
I guess Alec Baldwin was unavailable.
Maybe they couldn't find a big enough Hawiian shirt. Have you seen Baldwin lately? He's got Chris Penn disease.
Interesting - thanks!
LOL What did you expect when you throw up a thread indirectly concerning Selleck who had the best legs of any man I've ever seen? Not to mention dimples, dry humor, killer smile (fanning self now)
But I understand. You had just come from peyton randolph's post (with pics) #56. :o)
WHAT? George Clooney in a Tigers' baseball cap doesn't work.
Clooney fits in more as Higgins than Magnum.
Hopefully Wikapedia will soon be adding the name of a former Pittsburg Steeler to its list of Republican office holders.
From your mouth to G-d's ears.
BTW, that list is obviously far from complete.
Tall, dark-hair, handsome and sexy and he wears his dimples well.
This is an older picture, but it was fun to GIS for him.
Teflon P-9 will be your new handle, Presidio.
