The original Jack Dalton is coming to town.

CBS has announced that Bruce McGill, who played Jack Dalton in the original 1985 series, is going to guest-star in MacGyver‘s second season. McGill will play Detective Greer, a seasoned LAPD veteran who reads MacGyver his Miranda Rights for a murder. Not knowing who MacGyver really is, Detective Greer believes that he is a bomb maker who took down a warehouse, killing someone, and intends to charge him with domestic terrorism.

“I was happy to make a guest appearance on MacGyver,” McGill said in a press release. “It’s unusual for an actor to be on the original series and then, 30 years later, be on a newer version. The cast and producers were warm and embracing, and I enjoyed being a part of the new show.”

Of course, as fans know, the role of Jack Dalton is now played by George Eads.

MacGyver airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
