Selleck's versatility in both television and film has won the attention of audiences and critics worldwide. He is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Thomas Magnum in the '80s television hit, "Magnum P.I.," which garnered him both an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award for “Best Actor in a Drama Series,” as well as five People's Choice Awards, four Emmy nominations and six Golden Globe nominations.
Although Selleck is a television icon who still maintains a strong fan base that dates back to "Magnum PI," he has also established a contemporary audience thanks to the success of his Emmy Award-nominated role in the "Jesse Stone" television film franchise. Selleck's additional television credits include the series "Las Vegas" and the recurring role of Candice Bergen's lovable rogue ex-husband on "Boston Legal." His memorable guest-starring run on "Friends" as Courteney Cox's love interest earned him an Emmy nomination in 2000 for “Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series.” In television films, he portrayed General Dwight D. Eisenhower in the 2004 Emmy-nominated television movie, "IKE: Countdown to D-Day." Selleck also starred in the television film, "Reversible Errors" and "Louis L'Amour's Crossfire Trail."
