Here’s your FIRST LOOK at Jay Hernandez as Magnum PI in new series

May 14th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Em… where’s the ‘tache?!

You may recall a few months back (here) we reported that CBS was bringing Magnum back to our screens in the shape of Suicide Squad star Jay Hernandez, replacing the legendary Tom Selleck and tonight we have our first look.

Hey, at least the car looks right…

The new series comes from Peter Lenkov, the man who brought back Hawaii Five-O and MacGyver and will follow Thomas Magnum (Hernandez), an ex-Navy SEAL, who returns from Afghanistan and used his military skills as a private investigator.

He will have help from two fellow vets, Orville ‘Rick’ Wright (Zachary Knighton) and Theodore ‘TC’ Calvin (Stephen Hill), plus a disavowed MI-6 agent named Juliet Higgins (Perdita Weeks). Magnum takes on the cases no one else can handle.

Jury still out on this one… thoughts?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
