Happy Birthday to actor Larry Manetti, co-star, "Magnum, P.I."! 2010 PODCAST INTERVIEW

LARRY MANETTI AUDIO EXCERPT: “Tom Selleck was born gorgeous.When you’re born ike that, you kinda know inside of you that you’re special. He does have little idiosyncrasies. He’s a dear friend; he’s there if you need him. He’s a great guy. And I don’t lie. If he were a big jerk, I’d say he was a jerk.”

Part memoirs and history, part back story from Magnum, PI, Larry Manetti's Hollywood insider book took me into the working and private lives of the characters that I enjoy watching. I learned lots of interesting things about many actors and situations, and enjoyed getting to be "behind the scenes" of the iconic show. Getting to experience some of it through his eyes gave me more appreciation for the people involved, and who they are as people and human beings, not just as actors and their charac ...more

My friend Hinkie told me that Tom Selleck was thee nicest guy when he was shooting Magnum P.I. in Hawaii, so i had to read this book.
I found out that everyone who worked with Tom said the same thing, and also that Larry Manetti starred in Baa Baa Black Sheep before landing the role of Orville 'Rick' Wright on Magnum.
Larry dished great behind the scenes Magnum stories, as well as various other tv shows & films.
The best one was how he discovered, dated, then introduced Michelle Pfeiffer to a

so far so good- hee hee I got this as a gift and wow- what a story! Larry Maneti played the bartender on magnum PI and mre than that is a real character in the real world. Prt 2- okay so now I kinda slowed don on reading it because once you get the pace and all the hijinks, These perhaps told at the bar a few times stories are something you don't really need to read all the way through. I'm going to pick up on it later, for bits of inspirational hollywood 'wisdom'.

Hundreds of funny anecdotes about one of my favorite shows. If you're looking for dirty laundry or controversy, it's not here. Larry is very respectful and positive about the show and his co stars. He doesn't pull any punches about himself and admits he wasn't exactly a choir boy, and I'm impressed how active the group was in raising money and making appearances for charity. Recommended!

This is a fun book. A must read for any Magnum fan. Not great literature but fun nonetheless. Larry's personality comes through this book with all his stories. If you are/were a fan of the show this is a quick easy read with neat stories and a few good chuckles.

Nothing amazing here, but this was a fun read for me bec of my summers spent at the colony surf in Oahu where my grandparents lived. A few of his stories took place there and some of these incidents (Tom sellecks son rolling jeep out of elevated garage) I witnessed and remember

This is an excellent stocking stuffer -- an insider's account of the best show ever aired on television.

I enjoy the show (still watching re-runs) and thought that the back stories were great.

Ich habe viele der Folgen gesehen. Warum weiß ich bis heute nicht ganz:). Es wirkt entspannend, obwohl es manchmal wirklich sinnfrei ist. Aber eines werde ich mir merken. Diese Serie hatte auch Esprit.

Thomas Magnum:
