CBS has a new star for its MacGyver reboot pilot. Lucas Till, who plays Havoc in the new X-Men movies, will take over the role originated by Richard Dean Anderson.

Till will star as a young MacGyver, who will be in his 20s when he is recruited by a group to use his incredible knack for coming up with unique ways to get out of tricky situations.

According to TheWrap, the pilot will also star Joshua Boone (Fan Girl). Former CSI star George Eads has been cast as an eccentric who loves conspiracy theories but also does a good job as a government employee.

The pilot is being written by Paul Downs Colaizzo. James Wan and original MacGyver producer Henry Winkler are among the executive producers.
