LOS ANGELES, March 22 — He’s got some big shoes to fill in and we do hope Lucas Till will step up to play MacGyver in the CBS remake.

According to Comicbook, CBS has announced that Till will play Angus Macyver, who is recruited into the same secret organisation from the original series. Once recruited, he uses his problem solving skills to prevent disasters using unconventional solutions.

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.

The original MacGyver series ran from 1985 to 1992 and starred Richard Dean Anderson in the title role. The character is famous for his ability to save the day by improvising fixes with his trusty Swiss Army knife and other random everyday items like duct tape and rubber bands.
