It isn't official yet but producers are very eager to get Ben Affleck to play Magnum PI. It is sad that Tom Selleck will not be playing his original part. Wonder can only wonder if it was because he got to old and they wanted a younger version of him. No one knows 100% why Tom wn't be in it, however he was very good at his original role.
Rumors have it that Tom was offered the t.v. series but he wanted to make it a feature and held out. Now they are looking at others instead. This is good news however for the young Ben Affleck, however he has some big shoes to fit into.
I am still trying to picture Ben with that mustach, something just doesn't look right when I try scribbling one on him. I guess we'll all just have to wait and see. Of course, he does have that image that almost anyone would love.
