Born Jan. 29, 1945, in Detroit, Tom Selleck is best known for his work as the happy-go-lucky, Hawaiian shirt-wearing, hunky private investigator Thomas Magnum in the long-running 1980s television series "Magnum P.I.," a role that earned him numerous accolades, including an Emmy and a Golden Globe.

As "Magnum" wound to a close, Selleck made the move to the silver screen, most notably in the 1987 hit Three Men and a Baby, and picked up starring roles in other films such as Quigley Down Under (1990) and The Love Letter (1999).

In the '90s, Selleck was cast as the on-again, off-again boyfriend of Monica in the TV sitcom smash "Friends," a recurring role that garnered him an Emmy nomination and a whole new slew of fans. In 2007, he was nominated for another Emmy for his portrayal of boozy police chief Jesse Stone in the TV movie Jesse Stone: Sea Change.

In this exciting drama, Jesse Stone has settled in as the police chief of the small New England town of Paradise, Mass., and his ultimate nightmare has come true: Stone finds himself filling his time writing parking tickets and struggling to keep his ever-present attraction to beautiful women and booze under control. With one of his officers on maternity leave and another fighting for his life after suffering a gunshot wound, Jesse's restlessness gets the best of him and he re-opens a 12-year-old cold case involving the murder of a bank teller. Jesse finds his unsolved case unfolding while he's also investigating the tawdry circumstances surrounding an alleged rape aboard a yacht during the town's annual Race Week.
