This week’s MoBro of the Week is the legen-hairy private investigator Tom Selleck. Most known for his breakout role as moustachio-ed private investigator Magnum P.I.
A native of Detroit, Michigan, Selleck has had a successful career in television and movies since his time as Thomas Magnum in 1980, even though he had been busting his TV acting chops since 1969. Selleck was even offered the role of Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark, but producers on Magnum P.I. wouldn’t release him to be a part of the film and it went to Harrison Ford.
Since then he has gone on to star in movies like Three Men and a Baby (1987) and as a regular guest star on Friends (1996-2000). But it is obvious the true reason Selleck is as revered as he is today is because of his moustache. This moustache is even named after his most well known character, The Magnum. There are severalFacebook pages dedicated to Tom Selleck’s Moustache.
Without said Moustache, it is safe to say that Tom Selleck may have drifted off into obscurity like many other actors of his time. The moustache keeps him alive, and you are always guaranteed to see at least one MoBro rocking the Magnum style stache with a Hawaiian shirt and aviators at a Movember Gala!
