Cancellation of ‘Blue Bloods’ threatens Tom Selleck’s California Ranch

A big change may be in store for Tom Selleck’s life. The 79-year-old actor has appeared in the popular CBS crime thriller ‘Blue Bloods’ since 2010, but the series will end later this year. Selleck may have to sell his California property if he can’t keep the money he makes from it.

While appearing on “CBS Sunday Morning,” he discussed his impressive career spanning decades. During their conversation, he said, “You know, hopefully I keep working enough to hold the spot.”

“The place” refers to his 63-acre ranch in Ventura County, California. He bought it in 1988, right after he left “Magnum: PI.” Before the drought it was an avocado farm, but now Selleck is focusing on restoring it.

He became an actor by accident. Taking theater classes for an easy A in college derailed his lifelong dream of becoming a professional baseball player.

He gained recognition for his acting in the late 1960s, and his star has only grown since then. It appears Selleck has no plans to retire from acting even if “Blue Bloods” ends this year.

Looking ahead to his acting career, he said: “As an actor you never lose – at least I don’t lose – the feeling that every time I finish a job, it’s my last job.”

His ideal situation would be to continue production of ‘Blue Bloods’. Even though the final episode would air this winter, he is still hoping for a reversal of the decision.
