MacGyver reboot: X-Men: Apocalypse star Lucas Till cast in title role
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.
