Though he's obviously gone on to have a long and successful career in Hollywood, the Daily Mail says that Tom Selleck has been haunted for the past 20 years by a role that he decided to turn down.

Tom Selleck has been haunted for the past 20 years by a role that he decided to turn down.

See.

What they're referring to of course is Indiana Jones in 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'. They say new pictures and footage have been released from the screen test he did in 1981 with Sean Young as Marion Ravenwood. Selleck was offered the part, but Universal wouldn't let him out of his 'Magnum P.I.' contract to do a movie for Paramount, so the role went to Harrison Ford and the character became one of the most popular in the history of movies.

And yes, I know most people already know this, but I'd never seen his screen test before and thought it was cool. It's also more evidence that George Lucas is a fat titted jackass whose entire career is based on sheer random luck.
