Magnum P.I. has been in development as a movie for quite a while now, and many actors have been in consideration for the role, including George Clooney and Ben Affleck. Now, however, Matthew McConaughey has been offered the part, and insiders are saying he's seriously considering it.
Could it be because Magnum would afford him an opportunity to walk around with his shirt off a whole lot onscreen? Or is it that there's a lot of money involved in the role? Odds are good it's the latter, but you know what happens when you assume. All we know is that Matt would surely benefit from some sort of franchise built around him, because that's when the serious money starts.
