    • (when asked about Earl's mustache from My Name is Earl)
      Tom: Earl's mustache is coming along well and when he reaches puberty, it will really fill in. (laughs) That's a joke. I have my mustache now when people want it or when it is OK for that character. I have thrown plenty of spoofs at my mustache on Conan O'Brien. Every time I go on Conan, we make fun of my mustache.

    • Tom: There was a time I could have been mistaken for Burt Reynolds. I had a mustache and so did he. But he was the number one star in the world, so there wasn't really much confusion.

    • Tom: For a character with longevity, you have to have that strength.

    • Tom: I had a fantasy of being a pro baseball player, and I've gotten to play a Major League Baseball player (in 1992's Mr. Baseball). I loved Westerns as a little kid and I get to do them. I even get to die as an actor and then you just go home and have dinner. It's great. So now, I'm not a candidate, but I play one on TV and I'll be home for dinner.

    • Tom: His announcement was so typically Chuck -- he did it with grace and dignity and intelligence, ... Wolf Blitzer Reports.

    • Tom: I've got nothing against this particular set of candidates, but I do think we're not seeing enough of who they are, ... We're kind of seeing who they and their handlers think we want them to be.

    • Tom: It's intimidating to play the nominee for president. The little kid inside you says, "I'm not enough". I would guess that happens to politicians, too. They go, 'C'mon, who am I kidding? I'm just this guy or this woman".

    • Tom: I had a fantasy of being a pro baseball player, and I've gotten to play a Major League Baseball player (in Mr. Baseball 1992), ... I loved Westerns as a little id and I get to do them. I even get to die as an actor and then you just go home and have dinner. It's great. So now, I'm not a candidate, but I play one on TV and I'll be home for dinner.

    • Tom: Popularity is the pocket change of history. The true measure is courage. There will never be another Charlton Heston.

    • Tom: Going through my mind? Don't screw up, don't screw up Frank's birthday.

    • Tom: If a guy as good and decent with as much grace as Chuck Heston can stand up for an issue that I think is very important, ... then I certainly could stand up and I plan on remaining a life member for life.

    • Tom: He said, I still got a lot of fight in me, and this isn't the end of the line" and that's very much Chuck, too. He had a lot of humor Friday and it was great to talk to him.

    • Tom: It's not that Conservatives don't care. We do. We just have different answers than Liberals do. It's a difference of the mind, not of the heart.

    • Tom: There was a time I could have been mistaken for Burt Reynolds. I had a mustache and so did he. But he was the number one star in the world, so there wasn't really much confusion.

    • Tom: Son, never throw a punch at a Redwood.

    • Tom: Do you like my suit? I think this is an amazing suit, don't you think?

    • Tom: (in a TV interview a day before Laguna Heat started) I was planning to go in to Architecture. When I arrived (to sign up for courses) Architecture was filled up. Acting was right next to it. So I signed up for acting instead.

    I love everything Tom Selleck has done in the way of TV and Movies. I have most of his westerns and i have three of the Jessie Stone Movies. I love everything he has ever done. Love Blue Bloods Magnum Pi. I am waiting on Tom and Sam Elliot to get the rest of the gang together for another Western while they can still get on a horse,if they can. Love your fan forever !! <3 :)moreless
  • Same old Same old.

    Tom, we are tired of seeing your ditto reactions to every complication the writers script for you. You play every complication with the same pompous, grumpy expression. BOOOORING. Your fellow cast members are first rate - even while suffering through the inevitable family dinner your writers force you to endure - YAWN: but you just sit there stodgy as ever with the same old expression show after show. My husband seems to think the dinner scenes help make the show more believable. Sorry, for me it just give you another opportunity to play the same old same old.moreless
