The new MacGyver has been located in the X-Men Universe
Move over, Richard Dean Anderson. There's a new MACGYVER in town.
Lucas Till, best known for playing Havok in Fox's X-Men Universe, will be putting together all sorts of contraptions to escape the stickiest of situations for CBS as the network hopes to rejuvenate a past property for modern audiences. The search for the lead role got complicated along the way as there was no script for the pilot after CBS opted to go with a new pitch from an old writer who was originally attached to MACGYVER when it was first put into development. But now that everything has been settled and a vision has been decided on, Till is their guy.
Till recently wrapped X-MEN: APOCALYPSE and will be the lead in MONSTER TRUCKS for Paramount, so it's safe to say his star is on the rise after bringing a certain amount of organized chaos to the mutant world.
