For Veteran's Day, 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) brought on Tom Selleck, a veteran of the California Army National Guard before becoming an actor. Elisabeth Hasselbeck thanked him for his service, and the ladies oggled at an old photo of Selleck in his uniform.

Selleck was on his way to Washington to help promote an education center at the Vietnam Memorial Wall that, as he said, "tells the stories of all the fallen from all our wars. While there, he can go visit some old mementos from his past. The Smithsonian houses his Hawaiian shirt, Detroit Lions hat and ring from 'Magnum P.I.' "They recognize this as the first show that really recognized Vietnam vets in a positive light," Selleck explained.

Kathie Lee Gifford talks about Cassidy's 'Blue Bloods' cameo on 'Today'Kathie Lee Gifford didn't have to go far to get her story for Thursday's edition of 'The Scoop' on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC). Gifford beamed into a proud stage mother when talking about her daughter Cassidy's upcoming cameo on the police drama 'Blue Bloods.' Gifford recently visited the set to watch Cassidy, who turns 18 next month. "They were filming at a bar. Apple doesn't fall far," she joked.

Cassidy plays a teenage girl who goes to a bar with a friend and encounters the son of Tom Selleck's character, who is working undercover. 'Cassidy and her girlfriend come in a little tipsy and start flirting with Tom Selleck's younger son at the bar," said Gifford, "and then they go off to the bathroom because the girlfriend wants to do a hit of coke."

Tom Selleck Says His Mustache Is Famous on Its Own (VIDEO)

Tom Selleck on 'Rachael Ray'Tom Selleck's mustache is a thing of timeless beauty. It seems like it hasn't changed for years, a comforting image in turbulent times. He said today on 'Rachael Ray' (weekdays, syndicated) that his mustache is famous by itself, without him, so much so that it really needs its own representation.

Ray brought up the fact that there are pub crawls dedicated to Selleck, and he was sure it had more to do with the 'stache. "My mustache is getting so famous, he has his own agent now," said Selleck. "And I can't talk about him without his permission."

They don't even share the same agent; it's a completely different agent, Selleck said. He's pretty sure the mustache also has his own insurance, but he can't say for sure -- he doesn't have permission.

'Magnum P.I.' Cast: Where Are They Now?

by Kim Potts, posted Dec 10th 2010 2:00PM
It's been 30 years since Tom Selleck introduced us to his Hawaii-dwellin', Tigers cap-wearin', Ferrari-borrowin', generally-mooching private investigator Thomas Magnum.

'Magnum P.I.' premiered Dec. 11, 1980 and ran for eight seasons on CBS -- and was a top-20 rated show for the first five. It followed formal Naval intelligence officer-turned-P.I. Magnum as he lived on the palatial estate of wealthy writer Robin Masters; the estate was operated by fussy Jonathan Higgins, who may or may not have been the same person.

Could Jimmy Fallon and Tom Selleck Be Related? They Compare Mustaches (VIDEO)

Tom Selleck, Fallon Compare Mustaches on 'Late Night'When Jimmy Fallon hosted the Primetime Emmys last August, he introduced Tom Selleck as "my real father" and hugged him -- much to the surprise of Selleck. Not that the 'Blue Bloods' actor thought it was some nationally televised family revelation. Just that he was backstage and didn't hear Fallon say that.

So the hug was rather confusing. "I see this figure in white, coming out from my peripheral vision -- dashing at me -- and I go, 'It's an ax murderer,'" joked Selleck. "And then suddenly I was in your arms."

Fallon was eager to apologize for the confusion when Selleck visited 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC). Then the host donned a mustache to see if they really could pass as father and son. What do you think?

Tom Selleck Talks About Being Inducted Into the Cowboy Hall of Fame on 'Late Show'(VIDEO)

Tom Selleck, 'Late Show With David Letterman'It's been nine years since David Letterman last had Tom Selleck on the other side of the desk. He brought the actor onto the 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM on CBS on to talk about his induction into the National Cowboy Hall of Fame alongside the likes of John Wayne, Henry Fonda and Steve McQueen, as well as his new series 'Blue Bloods.'

But it was in their Hall of Fame discussion, that things got a little heated. Apparently, Selleck is a bit of a stickler about anachronisms in his movies. "If you see a movie that takes place in 1860 and the guy's using an 1894 Winchester," he explained. "It's not good."

"And they appreciated this and now you're honored with the induction." Letterman said.

"Well that wasn't the only reason!" Selleck snapped.

'Blue Bloods' Premiere Review: Tom Selleck Brings More Cops to CBS

by Maureen Ryan, posted Sep 24th 2010 11:30AM
'Blue Bloods' (10PM ET Friday, CBS) sounds good on paper.

Yet despite its good cast and competent execution, this drama about a family of New York cops feels a bit perfunctory. There's nothing necessarily wrong with the drama, which is ably headed by Tom Selleck, but there's every chance that 'Blue Bloods' will turn out to be just another cop show.

We aren't short of those.

Is CBS's 'Blue Bloods' in Trouble?

by Chris Jordan, posted Aug 6th 2010 4:15PM
There's lots of drama concerning the new CBS policer 'Blue Bloods,' but unfortunately it's not happening in front of the camera.

Executive producer Ken Sanzel has exited the show due to creative differences with star Tom Selleck, according to a report on Deadline. Selleck, who plays the New York City police chief (or commissioner -- more on that later), had been rejecting scripts produced by Sanzel. The report suggests that Sanzel's intent was to have the show go in a more procedural direction when Selleck wanted it to focus more on character development.

'Blue Bloods' is a New York Show... Or So They Say - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 29th 2010 6:01AM
Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg on CBS's ' Blue Bloods' panel at the Summer 2010  TCAsOne of the more overused cliches spilled by panelists at the press tour is that a show's locale is like another character on the show. Why is it cliche? Because those producers are only right half the time; they may shoot a show on location, but for some reason the location doesn't seem to come into play in the show's action at all. In fact, the show could be shot anywhere and it would feel the same.

Both the producers of 'Hawaii Five-O' and Tom Selleck in 'Blue Bloods' mentioned that their respective locales are characters in their shows. But, while you could feel the Hawaiian vibe in 'Five-O,' the New York in the 'Blue Bloods' pilot felt weirdly sanitized, even though the show was shot there.

One of the things that did it for me was the fact that Selleck's character, New York police commissioner Frank Reagan, is called the police chief. It's a small thing, but one that grates on an east coaster like myself.

Tom Selleck Talks 'Jesse Stone,' 'Blue Bloods' and a 'Magnum' Movie

Tom Selleck as Jesse Stone
Just as it did when (yes, we know, the fictional) Jack Bauer was hot on the trail of terrorist baddies, New York City will again feel a little bit safer this fall when 'Magnum P.I.' legend Tom Selleck begins another regular primetime gig as New York City police chief Frank Reagan, in CBS' cop family drama 'Blue Bloods.'

The Emmy and Golden Globe winner also recently starred in 'Jesse Stone: No Remorse,' the sixth entry in CBS' series of movie adaptations of the late Robert B. Parker's novels about alcoholic LAPD homicide detective-turned-Massachusetts police chief Stone.

With 'No Remorse' released on DVD today, Selleck took time to chat with TV Squad about his affection for the Stone character, filming his new TV series in NYC, whether or not Thomas Magnum will ever reunite with pals Higgins, T.C. and Rick, and whether or not he will ever consider a run for political office.

'Killers' Cast: Before They Were Movie Stars

Killers
Like many before them, the cast of 'Killers' got their humble starts on television, so Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher are in fine company as TV stars turned marquee movie names.

In 'Killers,' Heigl's Jennifer and Kutcher's Spencer are a young married couple living a seemingly perfect life ... until Jennifer learns that Spencer is a secret agent, and somebody is out to kill them both. Think lots of guns and action sequences with a dose of romance.

Heigl and Kutcher are joined by other TV names in their latest flick, so we've taken a look at where they all were before they became movie stars.

Tom Selleck to Star in New Show For CBS (But it's Not Jesse Stone)

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 17th 2010 3:04PM
Tom SelleckWhen I first saw the headline that Tom Selleck was going to star in a new drama for CBS, my mind instantly went to 'Jesse Stone,' the fine series of TV movies based on the books by Robert B. Parker. I think it would make for a great TV series, but alas, this is a completely different show.

Selleck is in talks to play the lead in a new drama for the network that would center on a family of cops in New York. Selleck would play the police chief and other members of his family would include Donnie Wahlberg (playing his son) and Len Cariou (playing his father). The show used to be called 'Reagan's Law' but now they're changing the name.

I'd rather see some Jesse Stone movies (or how about a 'Magnum, P.I.' reunion?), but if it keeps Selleck at CBS that means they'll be more Jesse Stone movies, so that's a good thing.

Tom Selleck Joins the NYPD

by Kim Potts, posted Mar 17th 2010 9:30AM
He's put his stamp on Hawaii and Sin City, and now, 'Magnum, P.I.' and 'Las Vegas' star Tom Selleck is headed to the Big Apple.

Selleck is reportedly close to signing on as the lead in CBS' as-yet-untitled fall cop drama pilot, in which he would play Michael, the "handsome" (duh) and well-decorated chief of police for the NYPD.

The family drama will also star Donnie Wahlberg as Brian, Michael's detective son, and Len Cariou ('Damages') as Patrick, Michael's dad and the former police chief who is now involved in the local political scene.
