    Default Pronouncing this name

    Hi, everybody. I have a doubt: how do you pronounce Selleck, as the actor Tom Selleck

    Is this /'sɛ.lɛk/ or /'sɛ.lɪk/ or /'sɛ.lək/ ?

    Thanks!!!

    I say number 2. But I think number 3 would be acceptable too. I don't think number 1 sounds right though.
