He was offered the chance to play Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark but chose TV instead. Fortunately, his show became one of the biggest hits of the '80s. While Tom Selleck's movie career never really recovered from the lost opportunity to star in Steven Spielberg's adventure film, it is difficult to say that he made the wrong choice--he won an Emmy® in 1984 for his role on Magnum P.I. and the show enjoyed a wildly successful eight-year run. After that, he tasted big screen success with films like Three Men and a Baby, though he will probably always be best known for his TV work. This BIOGRAPHY® is filled with rare clips from Tom's pre-Magnum days, including segments from The Young and the Restless and an appearance on The Dating Game, along with interviews with his mother, siblings and colleagues like Larry Manetti and Ted Danson.
