I'm a Mac...

Isn't this sacrilege though?

In the ’80s, action television shows were everything. From Magnum, P.I. and his sweet-ass Ferrari to The A-Team and their inability to hit anything with their machine guns, it seemed like the viewing public just couldn’t get enough of primetime explosions and car chases. One of the coolest of these shows was MacGyver, the series which proved that all anyone needed to be a badass hero was a mullet and access to chewing gum, twine, and a BIC pen. CBS is bringing back the series, which debuted in 1985, and has cast an X-Man as the title character.

Lucas Till, who portrayed Alex Summers, a.k.a. Havok, in X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, will take on the role of Angus MacGyver for the network’s reimagining of the classic series, Deadline reports. The pilot, written by Paul Downs Colaizzo and Brett Mahoney and directed by David Von Ancken, has also cast Joshua Boone as Hunter, MacGyver’s best friend from high school.

The new MacGyver series will — you probably guessed it — be a prequel of sorts to the original show. 25-year-old Till will portray the problem-solver as he’s recruited into the show’s clandestine organization for his ability to prevent bad things from happening by using only household objects and rudimentary science and physics. (Okay, some of it was pretty advanced. College level.)

One thing that is yet to be seen is whether Till’s version of the character will maintain Richard Dean Anderson‘s trademark hockey hair that he sported through most of the series’ seven-season run. But, if you saw the Canadian horror movie Wolves (pictured above), you’ll know how well Till can rock a ridiculous coif.

God of making the characteristic which becomes dirty sends the hurricane.

A handsome young man, who seems to have had a fairly successful career as an actor. Born in 1990, he has been in show business since he was about 13. Though, I have yet to see any of his performances. The show would have to be a prequel, as he looks much too young to portray the same aged character as Richard Dean Anderson, when he portrayed that character. While I am familiar with the "old" "MacGyver," it was not a show that I watched that frequently. Thus, this is a show that I am also unlikely to watch with any great regularity. The most interesting question I have is since Richard Dean Anderson is still alive, is he going to play any part in this version?

I hope this show bomb it will never be just like or better than the original MacGyver. Hatred
