Producer Brian Grazer has dismissed the rumor that Matthew McConaughey will play the lead in the upcoming Magnum P.I. movie adaptation, produced by his company, Imagine Entertainment. With a script and director Rawson Thurber (Dodgeball) already on board, casting has been the project's biggest problem. Grazer told MTV: "I think the idea for 'Magnum P.I.' is to find a counterpoint, to not try and find the new Tom Selleck but to find someone that is just so different that you go, oh my God! That guy is Magnum?!?" Sorry Matthew, apparently you're too Tom Selleck-y
Our dream casting: Mad Men's Jon Hamm as Magnum, The Office's Craig Robinson as T.C., Pineapple Express' Danny McBride as Rick, and Rowan Atkinson as Higgins.
Magnum P.I. casting, mostly Twilight style: Robert Pattinson as Magnum, Edi Gathegi as T.C., Peter Facinelli as Rick, and Bea Arthur as Higgins.
