Magnum P.I. gains full cast?
The rumours for who is playing Magnum P.I. in the film version of the Tom Selleck led TV series have been rife and wild, and they haven't stopped. The latest is that the main cast are all assigned, and these names fit rather well if you ask me.
Rawson Marshall Thurber, the director and writer of hit comedy Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, is finally ready to go on his redraft...Matthew McConaughey, Steve Zahn and William H.Macy who last played together in the movie Sahara, are signed to star as Magnum, Rick and Higgins respectively. Tyrese Gibson, from the upcoming blockbuster Transformers, is coming on board to play T.C.
Now just sit there and think of the characters for a moment and see how well you think they fit. I think that's a great list.
For those of you who don't know the story, Robin Masters is a millionaire who is never home at his Hawain estate, Magnum however is and he runs his P.I. business from there. He drives Masters Ferrari and his security head Jonathan Higgins mad. His friends T.C. and Rick help him out as T.C. is a local helicopter pilot and Rick a guy who has his hands in many not so legitimate areas of the island.
The story comes from UK Teletext, but do take it with a handful of salt because the rumours have been wild.
You know the best part of this list for me is Macy as Higgins, that does make me smile. My god, I've just read the same words from Josh...I didn't copy you, honestly, same taste! I do think that McConaughey could throw down a strong Magnum, as long as he plays it down. Is this a cast that would work for you whether you know the series or not?
