The Magnum P.I. reboot got a pilot order from CBS back in late January; the casting of Jay Hernandez is a clear sign that the show is moving forward at a quick pace. Hernandez could be a solid choice for the leading role. He’s different enough from Tom Selleck that viewers might not automatically begin comparing their performances, and he has plenty of experience on the small screen. Since 2012, Hernandez scored multiple episodes of Last Resort, Nashville, Gang Related, The Expanse, and (most recently) Scandal on ABC. He’s clearly a versatile actor; it should be interesting to see how he works as the new Magnum, assuming the reboot gets a series order from CBS.
