Central Casting is currently seeking submission for background and featured talent to work on Season 2 of the CBS series MacGyver. Production has began on the second season of the reboot series which stars actor Lucas Till (X-Men) as the resourceful and ingenious agent who improvises his way out of sticky situations using everyday items like rubber bands, chewing gum and a Swiss Army knife. Also cast in the project, from CBS TV Studios, is Joshua Boone (Fan Girl). The pilot, co-written by Paul Downs Colaizzo and Brett Mahoney and directed by David Von Ancken, features twentysomething Angus MacGyver (Till), who is recruited into the clandestine organization from the original series where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening. The drama serves as a prequel to the original series, in which MacGyver was played by Richard Dean Anderson. Boone will play Gunner, MacGyver’s best friend from high school. Shooting is taking place in the Atlanta, GA area beginning July through December 2017.
