For decades, actor Tom Selleck has been one of the biggest names in Hollywood. His rugged good looks, masculine demeanor, and gift at dramatic acting have brought him fame, fortune, and thousands of loyal fans all over the world.

Selleck has a reputation for being just as charming in real life as he is on screen, but recent reports indicate that his upcoming autobiography might hold some not-so-charming takedowns of other Hollywood celebrities.

Tom Selleck was born in 1945 and by the mid-60s, was a firm fixture on televisions everywhere. Although his first few acting jobs were small, mainly commercials for Pepsi-Cola, viewers couldn’t easily forget someone who looked as striking as Selleck. He found his earliest success in the popular late ’70s TV show The Rockford Files, opposite the legendary actor James Garner.

His role on The Rockford Files led to his breakout, star-making turn in Magnum, P.I. Playing a private investigator based in Hawaii, Selleck was charming, tough, and intimidating. He became famous for his signature mustache, and soon after the premiere of Magnum, P.I., Selleck found himself a massive star. 

Magnum, P.I. ran for eight years, and after the series ended, Selleck went on to find continued success in many more TV shows and movies. He had a recurring role in the hugely popular ’90s show Friends and made a host of television movies based on the book character Jesse Stone, which kept him consistently busy over the next decade.

Selleck found fame with a whole new generation when he was cast on the cop drama Blue Bloods in 2010. 

Selleck’s upcoming book

Blue Bloods has been on TV for nearly nine years and has only grown more popular with each passing season. The dedication to realism, on-point acting, and the family-focused storylines has drawn in new viewers while retaining a consistently loyal fanbase.

In his role as Police Commissioner Frank Reagan, Selleck plays up his trademark masculine energy and creates a character that remains popular with critics and fans alike. Selleck has been able to find relevance with a whole new audience, a gift that is rarely granted to any actor, much less one in his seventies.

Recently, Selleck announced that he would be writing a memoir, which would detail his legendary life and career. Shortly after the book was announced, rumors started surfacing that the memoir would include tawdry stories about his marriages, old girlfriends, and dirt on other celebrities that he’s worked with over the years.

The rumors even stated that Selleck would be offering up seedy backstage stories about fellow cast members, and reveal how he actually feels about the new Magnum, P.I. reboot. 

Will he gossip about other celebrities in the book?

As headline-worthy as it sounds, Selleck’s new autobiography will not feature any such dramatic details.

According to a recent report, the claims that Selleck is out to stir up salacious history are entirely false. Rather, a statement from Selleck’s spokesperson says that the book will include inspiring details from Selleck’s life, including his work ethic, his impressive career, and how he stays optimistic in the face of turmoil and obstacle.

Based on that, it seems as though tabloid-worthy gossip will be the exact opposite of what is featured in Tom Selleck’s book. What is likely is that the book will be an immediate best-seller – especially among all of the new fans that Selleck has earned through his work on Blue Bloods
