Parade Magazine Talks to Tom Selleck

Tom Selleck as Jesse Stone

The online edition of Parade Magazine has a profile of and interview with actor Tom Selleck, who is currently starring in the CBS series Blue Bloods.

Selleck, who lives on a 63-acre spread near Santa Barbara he shares with his wife of 23 years, British actress Jillie Mack, was reluctant to take on the role of NYPD Police Commissioner Frank Reagan, due to on location filming. But he says, "It's the type of role that interests me. I didn't just want to play a dad or a commissioner barking orders. He's basically a good guy, but he has flaws. I found that fascinating."

Selleck also plays a flawed cop in a series of made-for-television movies featuring Robert B. Parker's character Jesse Stone. Before Blood Blues even aired, the actor was on record saying, "I'm not going to do this series at the expense of Jesse Stone." (Look for the next Jesse Stone movie, Innocents Lost, to air next spring.)

Selleck wraps up his Parade interview talking about who he'd like to see play the role of Thomas Magnum if a film adaptation of his popular series from the 80s, Magnum P.I., is ever made. His choice: Tom Selleck. He envisions an older Magnum in a story line that catches up with events since the series' final episode. "They can't just buy a title and stick some younger guy in it. These things are quite real to audiences."
