Todd Slavkin, a writer-producer for SV, has given an interview to the Coventry Telegraph. He talks again about Michael buying sushi for the crew on his last day, and hugging Tom, and says:
"Michael is an amazing person. People don't realise how much he cares, not just about his craft but about other people."

D'aw! (BTW, this is the same writer who was the recipient of Michael's naked practical joke. Lucky guy!)

Haven't seen this Michael-pic before; it's from the set of "Cutlass", the short film in which he had a tiny cameo:


Mmmmm, stubble! Source: Acce Productions

Big love for this fan-vid - Magnum!Lex.


Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canucks!

His fake mustache must be tucked in his pocket!

Doesn't that look like a great show? Love how it mimics the real Magnum credits.

Yes! I thought that was a nice homage to Selleck's trademark eyebrow waggle, which I seem to remember also coming at the end of the credits.

Yes! For comparative purposes...

Oh, my little heart is just going pitter patter! What an extraordinary find, Tas!!

*dabs at happy tears*

Also, that Magnum vid is pure gold. It was perfect. I can't tell you how much that theme song is engraved in my brain; my whole family were huge fans of Magnum, P.I., and of Tom Selleck; one of my long-deceased, much loved and much missed uncles bore a strong resemblance to him.

*dabs eyes again*

It's a sweet interview, isn't it? Michael is much-missed evidently!

Magnum was such a fun show - pure pleasure! I remember everyone having Tom Selleck photos in their lockers in grade 8 & 9...

Who is that? A fan or another celeb? He's probably trying to make Chris jealous! lol I joke. Anyway, he looks good in the pic. I've yet to see Cutlass though.

He's a vid-director who worked on Cutlass!

I've yet to see Cutlass though.
Michael's "role" lasts all of 5 seconds! Watch for him at the 1.48 minute mark:

Yes, and the Magnum!Lex video is hilarious! I have to say, it took me back, I haven't heard that theme tune in years. It made Lex/Michael look all dramatic and action!hero type.

I think Michael would thoroughly approve of Magnum!Lex!
