Tom Selleck’s “Magnum, P.I.” Sidekick, John Hillerman Has Died

A spokeswoman for the family of actor John Hillerman says the co-star of TV’s “Magnum, P.I.” has died.  Hillerman was 84.  Spokeswoman Lori De Waal said Hillerman died yesterday at his home in Houston.  She said the cause of death has yet to be determined.  Hillerman played stuffy Jonathan Higgins to Tom Selleck’s Thomas Magnum in the hit 1980s series set in Hawaii.  Hillerman also was known for his 1970s roles as arrogant radio show detective Simon Brimmer on the “Ellery Queen” series, and as a difficult boss on “One Day at a Time.”
