Tom Selleck would probably be thrilled to find out that “Magnum P.I.” will be getting a reboot real soon.
Although, instead of him reprising the classic role of Thomas Magnum, it would be Jay Hernandez, a talented actor and fashion model known for his role as El Diablo / Chato Santana in the hit DC movie, “Suicide Squad.”
Some Things Don't Last Forever
Tom Selleck had his fair share of ups and downs in the love department. In fact, after getting married to model Jacqueline Ray and adopting a son together back in the day, the spark just didn’t last.
They eventually filed for divorce after 11 years of marriage. Tom was able to pour out his heart into a role that resonated with his situation in a film called "Divorce Wars: A Love Story."
The Price of Fame
A huge reason for his marital problems was definitely Tom’s steady rise to fame and fortune with "Magnum P.I.." Jumping from set to his promotional tours, interviews, and parties surely set some limitations on his relationship with Ray.
The show producers even forced Tom to reject role offers such as Indiana Jones in "Raiders of Lost Ark!"
Decades of Love
Fortunately, his marriage with Jillie Joan Mack has been going strong to this day! The couple has now been together for over 30 successful years.
Tom even shared in an interview with NY Daily News, “Jillie and I have a pretty good partnership. We don’t do anything or make any decisions without consulting each other. And if one of us makes a decision involving Hannah, the other parent completely supports that position, even if you disagree.”
One distinct aspect that sets the Selleck family apart from many other Hollywood families is that they have never let their celebrity lifestyle overpower them. Instead of getting all flashy with a ton of houses and cars, the Sellecks just enjoy their life residing in their cozy California ranch.
Quality has truly been greater for them than quantity.
