And Matt Damon could be Higgins



Rumor has it that the producers of the "Magnum, PI" film remake want to cast Ben Affleck in the title role. Uh, no. Hey, I dig B-Fleck (he was the bomb in Phantoms, yo), but I think he's all wrong for the part. I don't care if he's thought of as "too old", there's only one Magnum: Tom Selleck. Personally, I think all of these movie updates should be scrapped, as more often than not they turn out to be craptacular.

Daredevil was just a bad idea in general I think.

Vince Vaughn (15 lbs lighter? Possibly.

kate,

well, although i may not be a trek nerd, per se, i am a recovering comic book nerd. more or less.

personally, i think they should scrap any remakes not involving micheal knight and KIT.

Ben Affleck? No. David Hasselhof? Yes.

What I want to know is, why can't Tom Selleck do it?

As a fan of the comic, Daredevil wasn't that bad, although I hear that the director's cut DVD (which I haven't seen) makes it better.

As for Selleck, I figure he's spreading out his "Magnum" royalties and rolling around nude in 'em. That's what I'd do to keep busy.

Right now, since he ain't gonna be the new Fletch, Jason Lee should be the new Magnum. Hell, he's proven he can rock the 'stache.
