McConaughey P.I.?

04.02.2008
Is Matthew McConaughey willing to grow out some lip fur and spend his time hanging on Hawaii beaches or cruising around in a red Ferrari?

It's possible -- according to EW, the amiable charmer has been "offered" the title role for the MAGNUM P.I. feature. Universal's flick is, of course, based on the hit 80s TV series that starred the infamously mustached Tom Selleck as a former Navy SEAL turned Oahu-based crime solver. Writer-director Rawson Marshall Thurber (DODGEBALL) is handling the remake.

Of course, bear in mind that an offer doesn't necessarily mean it will happen (remember when my beloved Jessica Biel was officially offered the part of Wonder Woman, and then left me devastated?), but it doesn't come as a surprise -- McConaughey has been linked to the role for over a year, along with his SAHARA co-stars Steve Zahn and William Macy rumored for supporting roles as Rick and Higgins.

Thanks to 'Paul F.' for pointing out Matt's mustache possibilities.
Extra Tidbit: George Clooney was previously rumored for the Magnum role.

HA!

If McConaughey plays Magnum, Higgins might end up calling the police after finding him naked in the living room playing bongos and smoking weed!

I would have been neutral on this if it were some other actor, because this IS, after all, yet another remake--but Matthew McConaughey filling TOM SELLECK'S shoes? It's like trying to cast Glenn Close to replace Helen Mirren in PRIME SUSPECT, for crying out loud! Bugh. This *is* a BAD idea.

disagree

sorry, disagree, Theshadowalker. Firstly, Harrison Ford has aged way better than Tom Selleck. I do agree that he was the perfect Magnum, but now anymore. Besides that, your analogy just doesn't cut it. Manum P.I has nver been on the big screen, whereas Indiana Jones (at least with Harrison's character) has only been on the big screen. If they want to bring Magnum back to life in theaters they need a new, fresher face which to me, McConaughy is perfect for it, he's got the hair and could rock

I can't wait

No.


No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No.

Tom Selleck IS Magnum. And if Harrison Ford can still play Indiana Jones, then Tom Selleck should still play Thomas Magnum.

P.I.'s success was largely due to Selleck anyway, so he deserves it.
