I was okay with the prospect, but this is good news.
"...But lo and behold I don’t have to get angry at the prospect of the star of “Surfer Dude” playing Magnum. Brian Grazer just told me it’s not happening. So it’s not going to be McConaughey, I asked? “No,” he said. “I think the idea for ‘Magnum P.I.’ is to find a counterpoint, to not try and find the new Tom Selleck but to find someone that is just so different that you go, oh my God! That guy is Magnum?!?”Again, nothing against Matthew McConaughey, but I've already cracked this pineapple for you, Mr. Brian Grazer. Behold my stroke of casting genius.
