Jack Elliot

Jack Elliot
  • TV Show/Movie Appeared: Mr. Baseball (1992)
  • Actor/Actress: Tom Selleck
  • Position Portrayed: First Base
  • Played For:: Chunichi Dragons
  • Why you should vote:: This is Magnum for God’s sake!
  • Why you should not vote:: This movie was made in the wrong decade.
  • : This is kind of a shame for a few reasons. The first being that Tom Selleck in 1992 looked every bit the part of an aging slugger and could have been in a better film as opposed to the clichéd racism that he was in here. As Jack Elliott, Selleck entered the world of Japanese Baseball and the attempt at outdated humor began. Frankly, Selleck deserved better, and so did the movie going public. Maybe that movie would have worked a decade before, but for every year that passes, this film becomes more and more offensive. However, can we give him a pass because it’s Magnum P.I.?
