Would Tom Selleck have made a good Indiana Jones.
I have just gotten through ]Ike: Countdown to D-Day

This is a fine performance from Tom Selleck. I have looked up his biography before and one of the main things it always focuses on , is the fact that he had to turn down Indiana Jones to do Magnum Pi.
The real sin of course is that he could have done both.
I feel that he would have been a fine Indiana Jones. He is every bit as good an actor as Harrison Ford and I feel that TS's interpretation of the character would have been more laid back. I have also read reports that he is very good with any of the crews he has worked with and because the "Lost Ark" was such a collaborative affair he would have fitted in really well.
I also feel that he would have kept his mustache so that he would look even more like action hero equivalent of Howard Carter
I saw a documentary once about Howard Carter on the BBC and it was suggested that Indiana Jones was a action star equivalent of Howard Carter.
I feel that Tom Selleck has a great deal of integrity about him and because of this i feel that he deserves more credit than he gets. He also does not take himself too seriously. He is one of only 3 people to accept in person a Golden rasberry award.
