ScooterMike's Celebrity Birthday With A Disney Connection - Tom Selleck was born on this day in 1945. He was best known for his role as manly man Thomas Magnum on the popular Magnum P.I. television series from 1980-1988. It has been said that his legendary mustache possesses magical powers over women, and has been insured by Lloyds Of London for one million dollars (Dr Evil voice). Tom was the voice of the adult Cornelius Robinson in the 2007 Disney animated film Meet The Robinsons. Who could forget his portrayal of Peter Mitchell in the 1987 Touchstone/Disney film Three Men And A Baby, which reenforced stereotypes that men don't know what they're doing around babies. It has been theorized that this controversy was the reason he was not nominated for an Oscar for that role. Tom was also the original choice to play Indiana Jones in Raiders Of The Lost Ark, which in an amazingly wise career move he turned down. It was later revealed that his mustache would not sign the contract after demanding equal pay for facial hair. So we say happy 68th birthday to you Tom Selleck!
Whenever I think of Tom Selleck, I'm reminded of my mom telling me that she liked my dad's legs because they were like Tom Selleck's. O_o - cesium55
