In a bit of news that could have come straight from central casting, Entertainment Weekly says Matthew McConaughey has been offered the Tom Selleck role in the big-screen adaptation of Magnum, P.I.
He’s mulling, we hear—so allow us to throw in some points to tip the scales:
- TV-to-movie projects are huge. We’re all getting older, who doesn’t want to rekindle the happy memories of their youth? Who cares if they never measure up? A payday’s a payday.
- Hawaii, man! Can’t keep that trailer at the Malibu RV Park forever—you’ve got a baby on the way.
- Think of all the bare-chested buffing up you could get in on your downtime. Get yourself some new gear as a tax write-off.
- J.K. Living—remember that? Your new beach-inspired clothing line wants us to Just Keep Living. Do it.
This is meant to be. Take it, and make us stop yearning.
