Nicolas Cage is rumored to be the front-runner for the title role in the big-screen adaptation of Magnum P.I., wielding the mustache of doom as private investigator Thomas Magnum. This is a film that has been long-rumored to be close to production, but might be on the fast track now that there is a strike looming.
No word on who will play any of the other parts yet, though Ricky Gervais turned down the role of Higgins when George Clooney was rumored to be Magnum. No matter. It's still gonna be a fun time, and hopefully just as funny and cheesy as the original television show.
