Kevin Selleck: Movies and Career
Many might not know this, but Kevin did not start right away as an actor. In fact, Selleck’s first professional career began as a singer, where he performed in a band called Tonic. The group consisted of Emerson Hart in lead vocal and rhythm guitar, Jeff Russo in lead guitar and backup vocals, Dan Lavery in bass guitar, and Dan Rothchild also as a bass guitar and backup vocals.
Similarly, Selleck himself handled the drums. In July 1996, the band Tonic released its debut album titled Lemon Parade, including two singles Open Up Your Eyes: If You Could Only See and Solider’s Daughter.
Their singles featured on the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 for 57 weeks and later reached platinum. However, in December 1996, Kevin left the band due to some family issues. But rumors claimed he had some misunderstanding with the band members that led to his departure.
Even after that, Kevin tried to pursue his career in the music industry. Despite the financial support from his father, Tom Selleck, Kevin did not get success and failed miserably.
Yes, indeed, Kevin had not achieved success, unlike his step-father, and yes, he failed. But one thing Kevin was not was a quitter. He tried, again and again, to gain the momentum in his career and move forward.
Due to his persistent nature and a bit of influence from his step-father, Kevin ventured into the world of acting. He made several appearances in TV series and movies, including Magnum P.I. and Scream 2.
However, as of now, not much is known about him or his acting career.

Early Life and Parents
As we mentioned already, Selleck is not the biological son of veteran actor Tom Selleck. Born and raised in the states, Kevin is the son of model/actress Jacqueline Ray and father Shepard. The full name of his father is not disclosed yet.
Similarly, after the split, his mother Jacqueline started dating Tom and got married in 1970. Kevin was just 19 years old when Tom adopted him as his son.
Just when Selleck’s life was going well, his mother split up with the actor in 1982. From his mother’s marriage, Kevin has a half-sister named Umeko. At the same time, his stepfather, Tom, remarried with the British actress Jillie Mack and gave birth to his half-sister, Hannah Margaret Selleck.
Amidst such conundrum, Kevin enrolled in the University of Southern California to pursue a career as a volleyball player.

Similarly, the lack of father figure in his life and the absence of his mother, Jacqueline, due to work, left him unattended. This pushed Selleck to follow the path of addiction. Because of it, at the age of 22, Selleck was sent to Betty Ford rehabilitation center.
Luckily, his Tom Selleck never abandoned Kevin even after his divorce with Jacqueline and performed his fatherly duties. Also, Selleck was able to let go of his alcohol addiction due to Tom’s help.
