Thomas Magnum

Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum in Magnum,P.I.

The character Sam Beckett of quantum Leap shares an August 8th birthday with Donald Bellisario. One site said that Thomas Magnum of Magnum, P.I. also shared an August 8th birthday. I could not find a second source to verify Magnum’s birthday. Who even knew that tv characters had birthdays? I’ve included a photo of Tom Selleck as Magnum well, just because.
