Yes. Mr. Hillerman is a fine fine actor. He played an outstanding role in Magnum, P.I. And other works, I'm sure. Handsome, too!

Great on Magnum P.I.

I sent Mr. Hillerman a letter (He lives about eight miles from me) offering him a role in a film I was working on in 2007 being filmed in Texas. He called and declined. He stated that he has retired and he does not do cameos.

Loved his show but Tom Sellick (Magnum) starred in a few las Vegas Episodes with Larry Manetti andRoger E. Mosley. But no appeared, Why?John Hillerman

Jeff SnyderMar 29, 2009

I always thought that John Hillerman`s portrayal of Higgins in Magnum was the hilight of the show. Now knowing that he is a Texan and NOT British, it makes his performances even better. A genius!


i hope to hear news about you after alongtime. ramadan
