Lucas Till is about to make the transition from mutant to MacGyver.

EW can confirm that Till, who just wrapped his role as Havok in X-Men Apocalypse, has been cast in CBS’ upcoming MacGyver pilot. A reimagining of the original series, which starred Richard Dean Anderson as the titular character, the show will follow a 20-something MacGyver as he’s recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his problem-solving skills to saves lives. (Odds are, he can do a lot with a paper clip and some chewing gum.)

Till joins Joshua Boone, who’s been cast as Gunner, MacGyver’s best friend from high school in the reboot from writer-executive producer Paul Downs Colaizzo and director James Wan.
