Tom Selleck and Charlie Beck — Separated at birth?

Tom Selleck plays NYPD chief Frank Reagan in CBS’ new drama “Blue Bloods” — which BTW is very enjoyable if you have the love-Tom-Selleck-gene common to people who came of age in the ’80s.

But really, his doppelganger is LAPD boss Charlie Beck. Unfortunately CBS doesn’t have gallery shots of “Blue Bloods” up yet for a good close-up of Selleck in all his brass. But trust me, Selleck in his “Blue Bloods” garb could pass for the boss at any Parker Center news conference.

(The blog LAist was all over the Beck-Selleck connection a few months ago, and that was before “Blue Bloods” was picked up.)

Beck is pictured left, Selleck on the right (no, that’s not a comment on his political leanings).
