There are certain people out there that look like a movie star 24-7. You can add Blue Bloods star Tom Selleck to that list. One of Selleck’s co-stars on the hit show sat down with CBS’ The Talk back in 2012 to talk about his larger-than-life appearance.
Tom Selleck definitely has a movie star face. He also has the experience to back it up — the 76-year-old has enjoyed an extremely long and successful career in the film and television industries. Selleck has been a fan favorite in just about all of his major works, but he is perhaps best known from his time in the 1980s on Magnum, P.I., and then today on the popular police drama Blue Bloods.
Speaking of Blue Bloods, it was Selleck’s co-star on the show, Will Estes, who spoke about him looking like a movie star. Estes is known for his role in the show portraying Jameson “Jamie” Reagan. He plays a police officer in the New York City Police Department. He is also the youngest son of Selleck’s character — New York City Police Commissioner Frank Reagan.
“Don’t you find that when you are in a scene with him, because, you know, Tom has come on this show,” the interview begins. “When he walks into the room, you’re like, ‘Now that’s a star.’ He has this aura about him, it’s like, ‘Wow.'”
Estes replied, saying that Selleck has the unique gift of looking like a movie star at all times.
“Some people look like movies stars completely on film,” Estes explained. “He looks like a movie star when he’s just standing in the room.”

Tom Selleck Could ‘Write, Produce, and Direct’ ‘Blue Bloods’ If He Wanted To
Make no mistake about it — there are a lot of reasons as to why Blue Bloods is one of the best shows on television right now. But without a doubt, one of the main reasons is that the show has Tom Selleck. Will Estes told The Talk that Selleck could run the show from top to bottom if he really wanted to.
“He is incredible,” Estes said. “You know, he’s such a professional. He’s so studied. He knows his characters so well. He could write, produce, and direct that show, and he maintains that he just wants to act in it.”
Estes has been on record crediting Tom Selleck for helping make the show what it is. He said that it is a treat getting to go to work with him every day.
“When you work with him you get to see how he is good at what he does. So, it’s a treat every day.”
