    Well, if they want to hire someone with no charisma, and ruin the franchise completely, they'll hire Matthew McConaughey. I can't stand the man. Pure second banana material only.

    The TV show was awesome because of the likability of Tom Selleck...McConaughey can't pull that off & would be awful. I'd never watch it. Honestly, why not pick up from where the series left off & show up was Magnum, T.C. & Rick are doing now? Higgins would more than likjavascript:void(0)
    Publish Your Commentely be exposed as Robin Masters & just tell a new story with the original actors & characters? If they insist on someone new taking up Selleck's mantle....I pray it won't be McConaughey.....

    I think he'd be great in the role. I am more worried about the script.
