Jay Hernandez Reveals Why He Dropped Mustache For His Portrayal Of 'Magnum P.I.'

Jay Hernandez paid a visit to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday (January 28) and opened up about being the new Magnum P.I.!

The 41-year-old actor revealed that the team behind the reboot opted for him to not imitate the iconic mustache worn by the man who portrayed his character in the original Magnum series, Tom Selleck.

“It’s funny, that was a conversation I had with the producers and all the creative people involved,” Jay admitted. “It was my first question, literally, that was my first question. They said no mustache and I was like, ‘okay, right on.’ You know, in the early ’80′s it was kind of a great thing but now it’s sort of like a hipster thing.”

“I don’t know if could just rock the mustache, I don’t know if it’s appropriate,” Jay continued before host Stephen pulled out fake mustaches for both of them to try on.
