Tom Selleck, born Jan.
29, 1945 in Detroit, started his acting career way back
in the early 1970's, and some may remember him as Jed
Andrews on "The Young and the Restless." There is
no doubt that Selleck is best remembered for his role as
Thomas Magnum on the hit TV series "Magnum P.I.
(1980-1988)." Selleck would pop up on Simon and
Simon, The Fall Guy, Murder She Wrote, and a couple of
made for TV movies. His 80's movie resume includes
High Road to China (1983), Lassiter (1984), Runaway
(1984), Three Men and a Baby (1987), Her Alibi (1989),
and Innocent Man (1989). Selleck had a resurgence
of sorts, with roles on shows like "Friends," but for
whatever reason, he has never been the big box office
star (who knows why).
