Filming schedules are buggers. They’ve scuppered many a fine actor’s chances at getting game-changing roles. None more so, perhaps, than Tom Selleck. Having successfully auditioned for both the role of Indiana Jones in Raiders and that of Thomas Magnum in Magnum P.I., he was forced to take on the latter after it emerged the schedules would clash. He’d signed with CBS to do Magnum first, who then refused to let him out of the contract. Bye Bye Indy, then, leaving the door ajar for Harrison Ford and making him one of the biggest film stars in the world. Selleck remained predominantly a TV actor, albeit a very successful one. The onion in the ointment comes, however, when Magnum’s filming was delayed, meaning he could have actually done both. Ouch.
