‘Magnum’ Capped A Long Road To Stardom For Tom Selleck

Things weren’t always easy for Tom Selleck. Though it’s now difficult to remember a time when he wasn’t a star, he didn’t land his breakout role on Magnum, P.I. until he was 35 years old! (Selleck had previously been cast in six other TV pilots, but none of them were picked up.) Then again, achieving stardom a little late made sense for Selleck, since he didn’t even think about getting into acting until he’d almost finished college.
