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.

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.

Robert B. Parker, author of the Spenser novels, dead at 77

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 19th 2010 2:00PM
Robert B. ParkerJust last week I posted one of my favorite episodes of the 80s ABC series Spenser: For Hire, and now comes word that the author of the novels, Robert B. Parker, has died at the age of 77.

No details yet, but Parker died at his desk in his Cambridge, MA home. When you're a writer that's probably the way to go.

If you only know Spenser from the TV series that starred Robert Urich (which was great), you should pick up the novels, too. He's been writing them since the 70s and they're quite good, very engaging first person mystery stories set in Boston. He started a new series of book based around the Jesse Stone character (who happens to live my neck of the woods), and while I've never read those novels I have seen the TV movies featuring Tom Selleck as Stone and they are very good. There's a new Jesse Stone novel coming out in May. Not sure if Parker had finished a new Spenser novel or not (his latest is The Professional).

I think it's time for a Spenser: For Hire marathon.

Tom Selleck returns as Jesse Stone

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 5th 2008 2:23PM
T SelleckThe other day, Les Moonves said that CBS is a network where the good guys win. That's part of the reason for the Tiffany net's success, even if their programming is sometimes deemed too traditional. Well, a great CBS star is coming back to the fold to play a good guy in a movie series that fans embrace. Tom Selleck will returns as Jesse Stone in his sixth TV movie based on the Robert B. Parker character.

The new TV movie is called Jesse Stone: No Remorse. Stone, a small-town cop with a checkered past and a troubled personal life, hits a major roadblock in his career when the town council suspends him. He takes a job for an old friend, going to Boston to investigate a series of murders in Boston.
