I hope you all enjoyed my recent press junket! I apologize for the infrequency of my updates but as I mentioned in a very early post I was busy writing. I just didn't say what! Well, now the new Jesse Stone is out. Enjoy, everyone.

Jon Stewart certainly is a funny guy. I thought everything went well.

I suppose I had less to say than I thought. Take care, everyone. Keep the fanmail coming. I may not have time to respond to it all but I do read it all.

We miss out on alot of things over here in the UK, so after alot of surfing the internet I have found this site! I have been surfing the net trying to find out if you are married? Everyone dreams dont they? I am 29 and never thought my head was turned that easy, especialy after I read the comments of the Rosie O'donnell show. I myself am a member of the British Rifel Assoc and have often argued over the same points. Well stay safe and I heard that you were thinking about filming a Magnum PI movie? I would love to see it.
Lots of love

I missed John Stewart, but did see the newest Jesse Stone. You sure nail the character! Here in San Antonio you were bumped so that the city could see the Spurs lose (and badly, unfortunately!), but I did manage to DVR it and just saw it this morning. Are you planning another one? Is Robert Parker keeping up with you?

Enjoyed it very much...have a good summer....Bev Aranki

Hi Tom,

Just watched the newest Jesse Stone and enjoyed it very much. I have enjoyed your work for many years (we are the same age!) but I think this character is one of your best. I hope you will make another of these Jesse Stone movies, also looking for you in another western, I hope! Have a good summer...

Thanks for the updates. I saw your bit on Live and part of your segment on Martha. Both very good.

I liked Jesse Stone. Good series of movies.

Great movie, am looking forward to more of this Jesse character. Just so happen to stumble upon you on Martha on TLC. Come on, water gardens??? LOL I guess we got to see your feminine side. Great to see you back on TV. We don't watch the alphabet soup channels anymore just TLC, Discovery etc.

I did enjoy your recent work . When will you be holding auditions for the next Jessie Stone [Sea Change .How long did it take you to film Death in Paradise . I love all your work . Know anyone needing a production assistant I'm willing to learn all the ropes of acting and behind the scenes.

I just came across this site and wanted to say hello! I have been a big fan of yours for 25+ years. I LOVE the Magnum P.I, Series! It is still on TV here and I watch it every day. I know it's only a series but it just seems like the crew was a family and that you all really enjoyed making every episode.

I think I've seen every movie you've ever done! You are just a fantastic actor!

My husband and I thought you did a magnificent job in IKE: Countdown to D-Day. He is a huge history buff and we watched the movie every time it aired.

I missed your newest movie this past weekend and am looking for someone who taped it.

Thanks for taking the time to make this site.

Smiles!

It's great to see you on TV again. Caught you on Boston Legal, Martha and Stone. I wish the Magnum follow up would happen with you in the lead.

You were right about the Stone character. He's got some issues and layers. Plans for more Stone in the works?

Thanks for keeping us up to date. We appreciate you talking to us.

Hi Tom,

I am a big fan of yours & have all of the Magnum episodes on tape & now on DVD as they come out (they need some special features added though, maybe the two Lance White episodes from Rockford Files?). I also love the new Jesse Stone series & hope you make a few more. It's good to see you on TV again. Even the Boston Legal episodes were kind of funny. I'm glad you're not going to be in the Magnum movie if it's a spoof. It's a shame what they do originals when they try to remake them into movies years later.
I guess I'll say goodnight for now.

Dear Tom,
This is my first time as a blogger so please excuse any mistakes that I may make. I was thrilled to discover your blog site. I am a huge Tom Selleck fan and have followed your success through Magnum, your many cowboy movies, Three Men, and your most recent Jesse Stone movies. But your best work so far was Countdown to D-Day! I had read that the writers/producers of Magnum wanted you to play more of a playboy character and you did not want to play Magnum that way. I believe playing Magnum the way you did made the show a success. I feel this shows your true character. I appreciate the integrity that you put in all the characters that you play. Thank you! I am looking forward to seeing you in more movies/shows. I would love to see a Magnum, P.I. reunion. My kids like to tease me about being such big fan of yours. I am a very happily married women. But I just want you to know whether you are 30 or 60, you are still a HUNK!! Take care!

Hello Tom. You are a night owl also, judging by the time of your postings, or possibly, like myself, have trouble sleeping. Perhaps as we get older, our bodies require less sleep, though I admit I yawn quite a bit! Okay until that first one hits, then WHAM, every couple of seconds a yawn happens. I was a major Magnum PI fan (a great cast) and cried like a baby during the series finale when the John Denver song started playing. Cannot recall the name of the song, but it is lovely. You've stayed a gentleman all through your career, and it is so refreshing to see. Thank you for the many hours of enjoyable entertainment!

Hi Tom! I'm so nervous actually writing to you! I'm originally a Chi-town gal, but live with my husband and 2 tweenagers a stone's throw from Edison's Florida winter home. I was on the net tonight and up popped a GoRVing ad. Curious about that oh-so-familiar voice I've heard on their commercials, which I suspected long ago was yours, I read that it IS yours, and that GoRVing is revving up its ad campaign. Good for you! You'll be ever more present to fans. We are Going RVing! thanks to you!
Anyway, loved your role in Ike: Countdown... My husband - a physician - is a D-Day buff... his dad (sgt.) was in the first wave Omaha Beach. Survived, but I never got to meet him... passed on just before my husband's and my first date. Ambrose was his hero, too.
Annnyway, you look so much like my brother Glen (WITH mustache...) He was a Maui hotel chef, but passed on last year at 44. We spread his ashes by outrigger canoe - flowers strewn in an outgoing wave... Powerful tradition. It was my first trip to the islands, but given the timing, the ocean and mountains were like cardboard scenery. We shall return there someday soon - maybe GoRVing! You (Magnum) and Garner (Rockford) go way back in our lives - I'm 51. Reruns are a sentimental journey... we know you so well - like family - like having my brother here still. Thanks for the memories, Tom. God Bless...

Do you still stay in touch with John Hillerman, Larry Manetti & Roger Mosley? The three of you always seemed to be friends more than just castmates.
Thanks for the years of enjoyment and looking forward to more from you :-)

Mr. Selleck-if you do in fact really post here, I am delighted to finally have a direct means to communicate. If in between Jesse Stone installments (is the next one going to be Sea Change?) you might contemplate another Western, I have an author to recommend - Ivan Doig. Please let me know if you have any interest; I will happily forward his trilogy about Montana.

Hope your work brings you as much pleasure as you bring to your legions of admiring fans!

Please validate the Pollyanna in me by responding.

Fingers crossed-

Might you be interested in new idea(s) for a Western?? It's been a while since Monte rode into the sunset. Take a look at the books by Ivan Doig on Montana. I think you would enjoy them and might even consider them for screen??

Hope your work brings you as much pleasure as you provide your legions of fans (I've been "yours" for over 20 years!!)

My wife & I are new to Utah and are impressed with how the area looks like all the westerns we've read & watched. Right now we're watching Crossfire Trail (by our favorite author) and were wondering if you planned on doing any more of his westerns before you retire.

Take care big guy!

Hi Tom,

I watched a rerun of you on the Ellen show today. You had not aged a bit from the day it was run live. [wink]

It prompted me to see if I could find any contact info for you on the web. I really did not expect to find any. But on page 13 of my google search, here you are.

Cool.

My husband and I are fans and would watch about anything you are involved in. [dangling participles make too much sense to avoid them.] We have become avid Boston Legal watchers and enjoyed your character and his interactions.

I have written a fiction horse book. It's not a western, and no, I don't want you to do a movie on it. But I would like to know if you, your wife or daughter would like to read it. It is a nice relaxing read. It is due for release in August. If you're up late one night and get curious you can view more info and the first chapter at www.tordenspage.com

I'm sure you'll get this web thing down to the point you handle search engines like Quigley handles his rifle.

Happy trails.

This has nothing to do with your original post, but I was wondering if you would comment in your post about the DVD releases of Magnum P.I. So far we have seasons 1 through 4 and cannot get any information on when 5 thru 8 are going to be released. Do you know?

I have enjoyed every episode of Magnum as well as all your movies. You are one of a dying breed of truly GOOD actors. And you're not half bad looking either :-)

Hi Tom, I have always loved all your work, with Jesse stone no exception. I was sick last week end so I stayed home and pulled out my Magnum pi dvd s, and had my own Magnum Pi marathon. All the new dramas on the air today are so serious, while Magnum brought us Humour and witt, and made one feel close to all the characters, all with great stories! Good Times.
Looking forward to your next Jesse Stone movie.

This blog is an interesting read, and one can't help but wonder if the Real Tom Selleck is behind it all. However, last I heard he didn't reside in Jonesboro, Maine. Also, read the first few entries...dating back to 2005...those are not the words of a mature, down to earth, professional. Nice try though. That's one nice thing about the internet, you can be anyone you want to be, and only someone truly skilled in computer security can track you down. Funny world, eh?
Personally, I'm an author, yes published, and have wanted Mr. Selleck to view my work for a couple years now...unfortunately, the packet of information I sent, via UPS, to his personal mgr, was signed for, but never delivered to him. So much for ... 'the mail must get through...' LOL....
Anyway, get your jollies however you want...and blog away before the charade passes by. ; )

I married "Mike" 26 years ago today...(together for 29 years). Mike is a look alike Tom Selleck; people have told him that for years & years. It was really creepy when I first noticed the resemblance. I was turning a corner in the grocery store. Out of the corner of my eye I caught your photograph on the cover of a magazine and thought it was my husband. That was sometime in the early 80's and I cannot remember which magazine. Mike is 6'4" tall, 215 lbs., 56 yrs., has dimples, dark wavy hair (cut very short now, and a moustache.
I've always wished I could meet you in person..perhaps one day, if you are ever in Ft. Lauderdale. My son-in-law worked with you in the movie, FOLKS. He was a taxi driver. He said you are the nicest person.
I have been enjoying your appearances on Boston Legal. I absolutely LOVE that show!!! Are you going to appear some more this season?..I hope so !!!

Just wanted to say you are a great actor and my sisters adore you...I do to, lol. I remember being at our vacation home in Montana and hearing that you were at your vacation home there as well. We vacationed in a small town of Lakeside and you were just outside in another town close to us. Anyway my sisters went wild and drove to try and find you (they never did). But that excitement they had was just as neat as if they had met you. I still remember it to this day. Thanks for the good memories and smiles, keep up the good work and looking forward to seeing you on Las Vegas!!

Tom, I want to start off saying I have been a big fan of yours for years. I really enjoy the Louis LaMour westerns you do. I have read a lot of his books and do enjoy the movies. John Wayne has always been my Hero, and I as a young kid always wanted to be in a Movie with him. That never happened. I feel that our Great western actors are going away and we are losing our heritage. I really enjoy it when you and Sam Elliott work together. I know you probably get asked this, but if there is any way possible I would love to be in a Movie with you. It would be a dream Come true. Hope to talk to you later.

Hi Tom,
We met a long time ago while living in Kailua Oahu with my son Michael. We loved your show Magnum PI (my son has Cerebral Palsy and just loves those shootouts and car chases--a male thing I guess).
Anyway glad to know you're up in Maine now; great to be in the NE states. We live in MA and just love Maine; go there often to sail our Morgan32.
I love your new show and just wish it were a series so that I could see it weekly. My Michael enjoys seeing you on TV cause it reminds him of Hawaii...
Hope all is well with you and your family; maybe I'll catch a glimpse of you in that big state of Maine!
take care,

Ok,Tom....I did see the tailend of your new movie that came out on tv and I've seen the first one that you did for the character of Jesse Stone. I have to say that you still look just as good today as you did back then when you were acting in the series Magnum P.I. You haven't really changed. As for you shaving your mustache,you look like a completely different man.....I'm not going to criticize you for shaving it off,you do what you want. I have written you a letter just in case you don't respond or not able to just to let you know that I've read your blog. Your last post was in May of 2006. By the way,whatever happened to the man that played Higgins? I loved his character. He was so funny....and I loved the way you would get to him....also,I had read that you are now taking that other actor's job on the series Las Vegas. It'll be refreshing to see you again on a once of week series. I can't wait to see it when it comes out,I believe will it be this fall when it premieres? I really think that you are a good man. Take care and I know that this is impossible,but please try to get some rest. sincerely,Ladale

Tom,
I watched Magnum P.I. when I was a kid and I loved it. You are my favourite actor and I think you are terrific. I also think that moustaches look sexy. I enjoy watching your movies and programmes you did and I admire you and your work. You don't even look your age and you look like you are in your early 50s.
I'm a big fan and I wish you and your family all the best. I live in Australia and its a beautiful country.
Thankyou
Rachael - the biggest fan

Hi Tom,
We just saw the new Jesse Stone this weekend. (06.23.07 Victoria, British Columbia) We did really enjoy it!
Robert B. Parkers' witt and you're delivery is on par.
I don't write "Stars", but you know, it just seems like a good year to do things I don't usually do.
My son is named after Magnum a.k.a. yourself.
He doesn't have dark hair or a mustache, but he does have a great name!
Take care and we will look forward to the next Jesse Stone movie!
Cheers!
Colleen

Tom, where have you been? I somehow stumbled upon this blog and noticed you haven't posted in over a year. Time does fly.

I hope this finds you in great health and wonderful spirits. Please throw us all a bone and start writing again.

I must say, I read the old posts and comments....wow, some strange ones out there.

Anyway.....good day!!

Hello Mr. Selleck:

I have been a long time fan and was really jazzed that I found this site. That is only because I figured out what a "blog" is. Now that I am here I am not sure what to say. I heard you may be taking the place of James Caan on Vegas. That would be great. I loved Magnum P.I., I have even been collecting the series, and you play Jesse Stone beautifully, but what I really like you as is a cowboy. You do great cowboy. Just happens I am a big western movie fan. I wish you well and great success if you are accepted as the new casino owner in Vegas. For sure I will be watching. All the best to you and your family.

Hello Mr. Selleck: I see it has been over a year since you posted last but I hope you still keep in touch with your website. I only just figured out what a "blog" was otherwise I never would have found this. So, I read your postings and alot of the comments and thought I would give it a try. I loved Magnum P.I. as I am a real romantic and loved the Michelle/Magnum storyline. I also enjoy you as Jesse Stone. But my favorite is when you do western movies as you do great cowboy. I also heard you may be taking the place of James Caan on Vegas and wish you the best of luck in getting this part. Best wishes to you and your family and I hope to hear back from you.

Mr. Selleck thank you for your career and all the joy you've brought to so many of us. I in particular wish to thank you for the high standard of your individualism and your unwillingness to conform to pressures that are very much left of center as it pertains to second amendment rights as well as a grounded conservative view on life in general.

I'm a 40 year old New York city boy, first generation hispanic American and formerly a life long liberal who over the past two decades have slowly come to realize that my values are far more closely aligned with that which some may term traditional American values.

It's those like yourself in the public eye, so vulnerable to the external forces in the press and Hollywood at large, who set the bar high for those of us seeking to express our views without giving into fear of retribution from a hysterical liberal or two, or a full mob of them.

I am so glad I found your blog, I had been thinking about somehow extending a personal thanks to you ever since R. O'Donnel ambushed you regarding gun ownership rights and the NRA.

Thank you my fellow American.

P.S. Should you ever decide to run for public office, you have my vote

John Wayne, Ben Johnson, Robert Duvall,Sam Elliott, you....are all favorites in my "testosterone" home.....
I would like to say, thank you for the Jesse Stone series, I won't watch t.v., so my guy's (law enforcment-military) can relate to your character, as tough, honorable and get me to sit down and watch t.v. with them and actually enjoy it....

hey tom long time no see. i was listening to shawn hannity the other day and he was talking about the liberal actors and how conservatives had no representation in the acting community. i remembered in the past that you were well spoken and literate when most actors were lost in other peoples ideas that were based on opinions not facts. i my self am a recent veteran of the navy and after thinking the thoughts of you as an actor, believe you would be a good spokesman for what is really going on over there in iraq. i beleive that the service men would like you to tour there enviroment to take there stories and the reasons for there support of there actions over there. i feel that that you could represent what most of us fighting over there felt. that we would rather keep those idiots over there busy than have people dying at home. the media really pisses me off when they show the death toll since the war started. every year the stars and stripes give the number of death's due to drinking and driving in the armed forces and it is more than the combined death toll for iraq and other current missions. well i will get of my soap box. i hope you get a chance to read this brian

Wow, what a stroke of luck finding this! Just wanted to let you know I bought the first three Jesse Stone movies on DVD. To say they are fanastic is an understatement. I may have to get cable again just so I can watch any future ones. Already missed number 4, but will catch it on DVD also. As much as I liked Magnum, I think this is by far some of the best work I've seen from anyone in a very long time. Thanks.

Dear Mr. Selleck,
Posted this earlier but was'nt sure if it went through... Please pardon any redundancy. I'm kinda' new at this whole computer thing.
Sincere regards

Dear Mr. Selleck,
As a USMC veteran who served as an infantry squad leader with the Marine Corps 3rd Division in Vietnam during the year of 1968, I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation for the way that yourself and co-stars portrayed us in "Magnum PI". Most others in the entertainment industry were pretty tough on us.
Also hoped that you might assist in a film venture begun by me in 1981. It's entitled * GRUNTS * and, yes, the scenario concerns Vietnam. And touches more on the human, and even humorous, side of those who served our infantry at the time. And emphasis is also placed on the wonderful ladies (Nurses, Red Cross & USO) who also did their share of tours in RVN.
An attempt was made by me to produce the motion picture and succeeded in attracting Hannah Weinstein for distribution and a senior producer at Columbia, Larry Wilcox, who signed on to play a lead (Can prove it), the Marine Corps for Department Od Defense (DOD) which also can be proved and Alan Wilson of The Completion Bond Company.
Sadly, Hannah Weinstein passed on as the project was heading toward conclusion. Distribution went out the window. Sader, though, was her loss.
Anyway, and to make a long story a bit longer, my eldest son recently found a copy of the screenplay in the family archives and I thought, what the heck. I jumped on the Long Island Railroad (I live in Hicksville (Yes, a town with a name like that does exist...), treked into NYC and re-registered the script with the Writer's Guild. And here I am...
With thought in mind of all those great hours enjoying episodes of "Magnum PI", and with prodding from my two sons, your name came up. I had literally insisted they watch so as not to believe all that other stuff that was depicting those of us who fought in not so favorable a light. Stuff that was also an affront to the spirit of their uncle, Gregg Lavery, also USMC, who died in a fire-fight near Qua Viet in March of 1968. He was a great friend and paying condolence to his family upon my return was how I met my wife.
Hope you might come on board as Executive Producer, a major role player, co-writer (I'm sure the script could use a bit of spiffing up)or within any other capacity of which might fit into your schedule. Your envolvement would certainly enhance and, no doubt, ensure the ventures success.
THANKS again for being a friend to those of us who served in RVN.
Sincere regards
&
Semper Fi',
Mike Regan
PS This is a bit off topic, but with further thought of your service with the National Guard and subsequent involvement with the Watts riots, I hope you go to the "ASK" search engine and type in the key words, Mike Regan, TSBD (Texas School Book Depository). Feeling very strongly that the riot, and other violent events taking place around the country at the time (And since), are very much linked to the violent act which took place on that tragic day in Dallas on November in 1963, I've shared my research, and conclusion, as to what I feel, again quite strongly,what actually went down in Dealey Plaza that day.
Hopefully, once again, you will find the material of interest.
THANKS again...

I enjoy your Jesse Stone series, I have to search for them to catch them. But I really like the westerns you have written, produced, directed, acted in. Just seem more the cowboy type to me. You are a very talented individual, I have looked for and watched you for many years. I would like to see you write and produce and act in more TV series. Much more accesible than cinema. The moustache thing, either way, you are still winning my view. Nancy in Brookings Oregon

Hello Mr. Selleck,
My name's Kim, I'm 33 & I live in Valdosta, GA. I've always enjoyed watching any shows with you in them. When I was a kid I never missed an episode of Magnum PI. You're great as a cop, or anything else you act as but I think you make the best cowboy, second only to John Wayne. It was said best in Monte Walsh, "Nobody sits a horse like Monte Walsh", and it's true. I have laughed so hard at some of the things you've said in your westerns & the more recent Stone movies & cried like a baby at other times like when you had to put Boomer down in Night Passage. I haven't been able to get all of them yet but I'm working on it. You may feel your age from time to time but you definately don't look it. You seem to get better with age. No, I don't want anything, lol. This is the first time I've ever written to a celebrity, I don't mean to ramble on. I've had a constant reminder of you in my life because when my dad was younger he was mistaken for you so many times, strangers would come up to him asking for his autograph. He was the same height, had the same build, same mustache, hair & eyes. He ate it up, too, lol. Anyway, sorry to be so long winded. I hope you've had a great summer & that you'll enjoy the rest of the year with some much deserved R & R. Take care.
-Kim

I feel like an idiot doing this but I want you to know that I really enjoy your work. My favorite bodies of work so far are the "Luther Gillis" episodes of Magnum PI. I watch Las Vegas now that you are there. I enjoyed seeing Roger and Larry in one episode. You guys really need to do a Magnum movie. You were a wonderful "Eisenhower". I hope you are happy in your personal life.

Dear Tom,
You are one of the best actors that had ever happened to Hollywood. I've seen many of Your movies and most episodes of Magnum P.I. Today I read that You turned down a role in Indiana Jones for M. P.I.
You would have deffinetley been the better actor for the Indy role, but I must thank you for turning the role down and continuing making M.P.I.
I really hope to see you any time soon in Croatia, Zagreb or Dubrovnik so I can get an autograph.

Hi! Ok, it's been a year and a half since you were here, but I'm going to give this a shot anyway. First, let me say, the concept of marinating steaks on a cedar plank sounds interesting, how did that work out for ya? Next, what goes in a Ceasar Omelette? Third, there's been a very persistent rumor going around for about 5 years, now, that you're establishing a residence in AZ. And, finally, do you remember someone sending you a hand crocheted Christmas ornament because both her son and Hannah were born the same year? That was me. I'm pleased and proud about the Jesse Stone work, and I hope "Las Vegas" gives you as much satisfaction. May all go well for you, hope you come back online!
Much love,

Dear Mr. Selleck,

I see that you haven't posted anything on this blog since 2006, but I thought I'd give this a try anyway...

Today was such an exciting day! I stopped by my husband favorite cigar shop to see what I could find for Christmas, and picked up the latest issuce of Cigar Aficionado - with you on the cover. Nice article, by the way (yes, I read it before giving it over).

And then as I drove home, I saw a FedEx truck following behind. It was delivering the tail section for the plane my husband is building! The first section to be exact. You can be sure he'll be celebrating as he examines his latest project while smoking a cigar!

Without sounding like a crazed fan, I just wanted to say that Jason & I both enjoy your work, and we appreciate your comments on gun control and politics. If you are ever in NE Wisconsin and need a place to relax, don't hesitate to give a call.

Warm regards - Mary Kelly

Dear Tom,

Have you given up on your blog? We miss you!~ What a joy to read your thoughts - delightful.
Maine can be rather boring in the colder months - yet so beautiful in the summer. A blog is a wonderful place to visit yer fans. I live in LA (22 + yrs) but grew up on the Maine coast (Portland & Cliff Island). I miss the people, the water but mostly the food!

We miss you Tom. Yer all heart and there's not one like you. Sure we all loved Magnum - but not Magnum - it was Tom Selleck that we all love. Belisarious did the right thing by casting you in Vegas - but geeezzz that's the best charater you guys could come up with?! Could the writers maybe let you smile once or twice an episode - we miss yer teeth!~ Maybe swap Casino roles w/ Duhamel for an episode or two and spice it up a bit. I suppose the writer's strike doesn't help matters. I'm a bit miffed at them (yes, I am in the business) - they jumped the table too soon. Nough said. So I guess Maine is a perfect place to get away, write your own material and enjoy life in a place that matters. I miss Maine - s'where my heart is, I only "work" in LA. Well - stay warm, cook lots.

Take good care - we miss you!~
