Tough conservative? Not me, Selleck says

SHARE Tough conservative? Not me, Selleck says

Tom Selleck's latest role may seem out of character for a man who once publicly supported Ronald Reagan and the National Rifle Association.

Television's former "Magnum P.I." starred in a Sunday TNT special about a Democratic presidential candidate searching for a running mate. Selleck, however, insists he's been mistakenly branded as a conservative activist.

"I've been a registered independent for a decade," he said. "And in the last decade, I've probably given as much money to Democrats as Republicans."
