Tom Selleck’s New Careers After Blue Bloods Are Cancelled
Tom Selleck’s New Careers After Blue Bloods Are Cancelled
Up to date on October 19, 2011 Kenneth Avery moreContact Creator How all of it started . . .
Sooner or later, a couple of weeks ago, I used to be sitting at my dining room desk having fun with a field of Kentucky Fried Chicken, a cup of fresh Neighborhood espresso, and immediately Tom Selleck, superstar actor popped into my thoughts. I didn’t suppose that much of it on the time. And continued to eat my Kentucky Fried Hen like every regular man would do. Then, as I took out a rooster leg, he was there once more. Tom Selleck. Smiling the devilish smile and not saying a phrase. One time, coincidence. Two instances, I didn’t know. Now I was getting more annoyed than concerned. I don’t prefer to be interrupted as I eat my Kentucky Fried Rooster.
I completed my meal. Cleared the table and headed for my trusty outdated couch in my living room for my each day nap. Ahhh, I felt good. Ready to sleep an hour or two in peaceful bliss. No, not right now. Fate did not have me napping like a child at this time. I tossed to the fitting. There he was. Tom Selleck. I tossed to the left. Tom Selleck. I obtained up, very cranky, from not getting my nap, and went outdoors. There he was. Tom Selleck. Standing in the bushes near my front yard. Boy, did he look foolish crept down behind those bushes. He looked like a “peeping tom.” No pun, supposed.
Now I appreciate Tom Selleck, the illustrious star of television and movies as much as any man, but I’d like the respect of being called when Selleck of any famous man or woman goes to pay me a visit. That’s just plain good manners, when you ask me. Even Tom Selleck should know better than to scare a man of my age, 57. I shouldn’t have the cat-like reflexes as I did when I used to be 20. And that, my mates, is difficult to deal with.
Let’s talk briefly about Tom Selleck’s profession . . .
At the moment, Tom Selleck is the star of CBS’ Friday night time hit, Blue Bloods. Selleck plays Frank Reagan, police commissioner of new York Metropolis. His two sons, Donnie Wahlberg performs Danny, Will Estes, performs Jamie, his daugher, Bridget Moynahan, performs Erin Reagan-Boyle, the assistant district lawyer while Lou Cariou, plays Frank’s dad, Henry. Blue Bloods is a superb mixture of drama, motion, and suspense–all properly-meshed to make an important present about how the trendy-day policeman (or lady) deals with life every day.
Selleck, I suppose, is finest-recognized for his tv signature role as Thomas Magnum, or Magnum, P.I., also on CBS. Selleck played a single man, with Naval experience who wished to be a personal detective in Hawaii. Magnum stays at the property of well-known ‘author’ Robin Masters and the estate is managed by veteran actor, John Hillerman, who performs Higgins who at all times gives Magnum a hard time about his way of life of preserving late hours, partying with stunning women and boozing along with his buddies, Roger E. Mosley, who performed T.C., his Vietnam buddy who now owns a helicopter-for-rent for vacationers and Orville Wright, or Rick, performed by another Vietnam buddy, Larry Minetti. With Magnum whizzing across the island territories in Robin Master’s red Ferrari, and dealing with stunning woman purchasers every week, throw in the schemes (to assist Magum) by T.C. and Rick, you may have your self a dynamite show. And CBS knew full-effectively what having an enormous present like Magnum, P.I. meant. Money. And plenty of it.
However one sad day, Magnum, P.I. was cancelled . . .
and one unhappy day, when the rankings start to slump, so will Blue Bloods be put on the chopping block. That is unhappy, however a reality of the tv industry. It does not take a Harvard graduate to determine the equation of viewer-supported hit show equals large promoting revenues. But when the viewer-support (drops) on the hit show, so do the massive promoting revenues, and with “fixes” to the ailing show like plot and character modifications, characters being ‘killed off’ the show to boost rankings, then the inevitable occurs. Cancellation. Nothing private. Just tv business. And that i hate to be the one to convey dangerous information, but one day sooner or later, Blue Bloods might be historical past. Sorry, of us. However you recognize as well as I do if you are a fan of tv, that this reality of cancelling a show is the ‘nature of the beast.’ Hey, I shed tears when Barney Miller, (ABC), was cancelled. And that i also felt depressed when M*A*S*H left the air, however wasn’t cancelled. Actors burn out. Screenwriters get burned out. Change is at all times only one script away.
But what’s going to Tom Selleck do when his Blue Blood days are over . . .?
I am so glad I requested that query, for I have a number of answers for our pal, Tom Selleck, who even seems good hunkered down behind bushes. Advised you he was that versatile. Tom is fortunate, more like blessed, to have someone like me who has thought ahead into his future to safe a very good job for him as his days of fame are slowly fading into entertainment historical past.
the ‘darling and workhorse of CBS,’ could star in the new Magnum, P.I. set in the identical picturesque Hawaiian islands and have Tom Selleck co-star as his long-lengthy brother, Tommy, who was a prisoner-of-struggle who the Navy Seals rescued and now lives with O’Loughlin, the brand new, extra-fashionable, stylish, smooth-talking, New Magnum, P.I. For some purpose, the plot has it that every week, O’Loughlin faces a process that he is not skilled to sort out, so Selleck/Tommy comes up with this brainstorm from somewhere out of the blue and the brand new Magnum, O’Loughlin, is the hero again while Tommy/Selleck remains within the shadows.
don’t inform me that Tom Selleck could not be Batman. I will not buy that. Everybody else on the block has performed the caped crusader–Val Kilmer, George Klooney, Michael Keaton, so why not Selleck? All that’s required is an upgraded Batmobile, Robin, Alfred and plot, Ribbed Standing Collar Button Placket Sweater In Black and you’ve got yourself a mega-billion-dollar film. Does this make sense? It makes good ‘cents’ to me. Selleck has the body. The appears. The suave manners. Easy discuss. Witty remarks. So why doesn’t Hollywood have Selleck star as Batman? I have to get on that right away.
would be a super job for Tom Selleck after Blue Bloods is nothing greater than a clipping in someone’scrapbook. Selleck continues to be in good shape. Fine condition enough to be in physique building competitors. And speak about sponsors! Companies like Hawaiian Tropic, V-eight, Johnson’s baby oil, to call a number of, can be clamouring to be Selleck’s sponsors. I can assure you this: each physique constructing event Selleck entered would be an prompt sell-out with tickets mostly bought by ladies, each single, married, and people not wanting to stay married.
Used Car Salesman
this is a gimme. No description required. Selleck may show up on the used automotive lot the place he works, dressed in on a regular basis clothes, and sell your entire lot of vehicles earlier than noon. Then he may go home, nap, count his cash and go back the next day and do it yet again. Selleck’s patented, copyrighted gross sales pitch: “Buy this automobile,” is all he would ever say. The client, a lady, would have pen-in-hand able to sign the papers. Selleck’s fame would work for him for years.
Recreation Show Host
what recreation show’s scores would not undergo the roof with Tom Selleck as host? There isn’t a sport show that Selleck couldn’t host and with little or no rehearsing. Just Tom being Tom could be greater than ample to have a game present like, “Bowling For Puppies,” primary in America overnight. Now, on this show, Selleck could be anticipated to gown the half–tuxedo, black patent leather footwear, bow tie, ruffled shirt, the works. And that cute Selleck smile and eyebrows going up and down, the viewers would eat it up. Hey, talk about a great combine. Family Feud that when had Richard Dawson the kissing-host, would be the perfect present for Tom Selleck. When he walked to ask the families their questions, all of the females would move out. What a “ratings monster.”
on any beach. Tom Selleck is a natural for being a lifeguard. Hey, a remake of Bay Watch is simply what the physician ordered. He can do his lifeguard work in his off-time. But what David Hasselhoff lacked in being a star, Tom Selleck may just show up in swimming trunks and the present could be headed for primary instantly. Oh, the co-stars, the girls, Selleck can be in command of who is a Bay Watch Babe an who is not. What a drudgery.
can you just see Tom Selleck in his jungle wardrobe with whip and chair going head-to-head, even wrestling two male lions in a cage in the Barnum-Bailey Circus? This would be a blockbuster of a job for Selleck. He would not must get tough with the lions both. Only one angry look from his eyes and the lions would flip into kittens. Of course, Selleck would have a pretty lady assistant. I might say, Lindsey Lohan, to help her rehabbing from medicine.
and I am critical. I feel I have heard Tom Selleck sing before. Someplace on some sitcom, I’m undecided, but as proficient as Tom Selleck is, singing classes would be a formality. Tom would star in a weekly-series known as, “Western Lawmen,” and Selleck, who may “act’ like he’s strumming his guitar, might sing to the girl of his coronary heart each week. Yes, Selleck, with ten-gallon hat, bandanna, and guitar over his shoulder, would win the guts of all the ladies on his new western present. It worked for Roy Rogers. Why not Tom Selleck?
this one I threw in to give Tom Selleck a spot for some “me time.” What higher solution to loosen up from the rigours of show business, even in his latter years, than being a scarecrow guarding some farmer’s pumpkin patch. Selleck might sleep, relax, and not even transfer all day lengthy, but when at some point, a lady buyer who wants to buy her little “Tommy” a pumpkin for his birthday, happens to see that the good-looking scarecrow is Tom Selleck, the show is over. Soon, the pumpkin patch can be overrun with consideration-starved girls wanting to pose with Selleck the scarecrow.
Danny Zuko, Chief of The T-Birds in Grease
is just what Tom Selleck’s agent ordered. Tom has ‘that’ masculine enchantment that can’t be dampered with a black wig and a bit make-up. No sir. He’s Danny Zuko, within the remake of Grease, now referred to as New Grease, with co-star, Taylor Swift, as Sandy, who’s enjoying Olivia Newton John’s outdated position. It is a workable film. Selleck and his T-Birds, Ethan Hawke, Denzel Washington, Rob Morrow, and John Goodman as “Tiny,” this film would rake in money by the wheelbarrow full.
The Duke, John Wayne
This people, I am severe about. Tom Selleck starring as John Wayne in the autobiographical accounts of The Duke in his rise to stardom and finally, the “king of Hollywood.” Tom Selleck, to me, might pull this role off with little work. Selleck has starred in some western shows before, Quigley Down Under, and The Shadow Riders, so this function of The Duke shouldn’t be that hard. I could be the first to buy a ticket if some sensible-thinking producers in Hollywood would simply set this up. I am completely-serious. Tom Selleck may simply win an Oscar for his portrayal of The Duke. Are you with me?
Now. I feel significantly better at realizing that after Blue Bloods is over, Tom Selleck, I call him Tom, may have a number of jobs to choose from to bolster his career and keep his fame alive.
Now that Tom Selleck’s profession is safe, who’s next?
My office is open.

Whats up, Turtle,
Thank you to your fascinating opinion. I agree with you up to a point, however I’m wondering what Selleck and actors like him, will do in the real world once his profession with Blue Bloods or no matter mission he was in, is over. I suppose I should not assume on such thinks.
Thanks for stopping by and listen, I might like to have you ever as a follower if you are not one already.

In the event that they cancel Blue Bloods additionally they are taking all one of the best shows off the Tv and leaving garbage that individuals are caught watching. They might as well just make a present out of the commercials since they show so many of them throughout the exhibits. KEEP BLUE BLOODS ON !!!
I love you for this remark. I simply can not help it. She does this on each show. I simply occur to be watching Blue Bloods tonight, June 5, 9:40 p.m., cdst, and she is talking with Frank about Nicky’s college and sure, trying on so dramatic.
Thanks once more for the candy remark and visit with me anytime.
Really funny comment about Erin Reagan, and proper on cue. If I didn’t despise prosecutors a lot, I’d feel sorry for her.
You’re oh so right in your candy comment. But I have discovered to like Jesse Stone for it is a dose of reality in cops shows that I desperately-needed.
I forgot to mention the girl, “Francis Reagan’s” daughter. Does she just must have ‘that” forlorn, deep-dramatic look on her face in every shot?
At dinner . . .
Frank: Care for some costly roast beef and an even bigger wine glass?
Girl: Ohhhh effectively, uhhhh, gasp, I suppose . . . I would be the sacrificial lamb in court docket when i let that jaywalker get bail. Ohhhhhhh.
Come back and go to anytime.

Nah, Kenneth, I do not suppose so. Tom Selleck is about my age, and there comes a time when it is time to throw in the towel and admit you’re getting outdated. I think Blue Bloods does a good job of permitting him to do that gracefully. I do love Tom Selleck, although. I love anything he has completed besides Jesse Stone. I discover the brooding Jesse Stone boring and need to tell him to get off his duff and reside slightly. It just isn’t an important function for an ideal actor. Neither is used automotive salesman!
I agree with Nicomp that a potted plant might change Boehner.

This text is still current! Boehner nonetheless needs changing and a potted plant may suffice.
I admit that I like Selleck also, but his film series, “Jesse Stone,” to me is more of a practical manufacturing. However thanks, Ann for commenting. Garment-Dyed Cotton Pique Twin Tipped Polo Shirt In Red Wine I hope to listen to more from you.

After i had a Tv I used to observe Blue Bloods. Love Tom even if he’s a Republican. Of course he’s changed a lot since his cigar commercial days. Can’t think about he can be a worse Speaker than the orange one in that workplace now, so why not give him an opportunity?

That is the primary hub I’ve learn by you, so I am off and operating now to begin reading the remainder. Thanks in your attitude and sense of humor.
Good day, AurelioLeo, You’re right too. I AGREE along with your assertion. Selleck CAN play any function/character that’s thrown his way. I would like to see him in an upgraded personal-eye setting, possibly New York/Los Angeles…however not the Magnum format…throw in a few of Jesse Stone’s Scotch, a raincoat, a used Mercedes an on-again off-once more girlfriend, and you bought your self a brand new Peter Gunn….a traditional from the past. Thanks on your comment. You made me think of one other Selleck position. Kenneth
Hi there, my Hub Friend, jenubouka! Sure, You’re Appropriate. I was NEGLIGENT in NOT including Jesse Stone, whom I really like greater than Blue Bloods. Thank you for correcting me. And i cannot remember their title, perhaps it was YOU, mentioned that Sellect would make an excellent Paladin, Have Gun Will Journey–one way forward of your time, and that i agreed with that 100% with his quiet methods.

Tom Selleck is my hero, a true blooded actor. Do not forget his Jesse Stone character, he at all times can fall back on the drunken mystery solver.
