McConaughey as Magnum?

Posted by Jay Medina on January 17, 2007

Blonde-haired Matthew McConaughey with a moustache, fit out with shorts and a Hawaiian tee, driving a Ferrari down a palm tree-lined avenue. Is that a close enough approximation of Magnum P.I. for you? It might have to do. It’s been a while since we heard what was happening with the feature film remake of Magnum P.I., but according to the UK’s Teletext, writer-director Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball) has finished his latest draft for the film and named McConaughey as his choice to play the suave Hawaiian detective. The same report pegs…

I liked this show as a kid.  The location, the character of an ex-Navy SEAL from Vietnam who went private eye. It all worked.  Not sure if I like the Matthew McConaughey thing, though.  Don’t get me wrong, I really like Mac in Reign of Fire.  Just not sure he’s worthy to take on Magnum.  Check out the article to see who they have for Rick, T.C. and Higgins!  It might blow your mind.

Two Enterprise Captains in Trek XI?

Star Trek XIMost non-casual Star Trek buffs know that Capt. Kirk wasn’t the first man to command the bridge of the first USS Enterprise. In the original, rejected pilot episode of The Original Series, the legendary ship’s captain was Christopher Pike. The captainship became the domain of William Shatner’s character for the pilot remake and the rest of the series, but the Pike character was revived in the episode “The Menagerie”, establishing Pike was the Enterprise’s first captain. Actually, the hardcore fans doubtlessly remember that the animated Star Trek series of the ’70s named a predecessor of Pike’s, Robert April. However, that character, and the animated series in general, are not considered Star Trek canon. This sort of background history becomes important now that a pre-TOS film is on the way.
