CBS’s MacGyver reboot has found its new MacG. (No, not that one.) THR reports that Lucas Till, who plays Havok in the new X-Men movies, has landed the lead role in the Eye’s pilot. Given that Till is 25, it probably won’t surprise you to learn that the series plans to tell the origin story of the familiar ‘80s action hero. If it gets picked up, the MacGyver pilot is expected to finally explain, in a gripping three-episode arc, where exactly he bought that Swiss Army knife.
