MacGyver star dishes on Friday's season finale
Astrid MartinezUpdated 3 hrs ago | Posted on May 7, 2020 0

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) -- Thereís some good news for MacGyver fans. The show, which has been a Friday night hit on CBS was just renewed for season 5.

And thereís also one more new episode to enjoy this Friday.

Given the pandemic, thereís a lot of uncertainty of when the cast will be able to be back together in Atlanta to start taping. The good news is the star Lucas Till is dishing on the final episode and what heís been up too during quarantine

Things are about to get explosive in the last episode of MacGyverís season 4. This Friday is the culmination of a season-long arc where MacGyver and the Phoenix team fight to prevent another organization from detonating a weapon of mass destruction.

ďYou know, we confront our big bad guy Codex who has been living in the shadow like the illuminati, and theyíre trying to plan to wipe out a portion of the Earthís population so they can reset it. So you think does Mac really believe in their cause or is he trying to infiltrate it and so we will find out on Friday.Ē

Lucas Till and I go way back to season 2 of the show. I typically meet the Atlanta native at the local set of the CBS show. But given the current times, we had to adjust.

The actor has been sheltering in place at home. A feeling heís familiar with.

ďHonestly itís been no different than normal. When Iím on hiatus sit in my house like Pablo Escobar in Narcos when he just sits outside and doesnít know what to do with his life.Ē

Typically Lucas would be getting ready to shoot the upcoming season 5 of the series in July. Given the pandemic, film dates are unclear.

ďNo one is really going to want to get close to each other and exchange stuff. Itís going to make things really interesting because we work so closely, I mean when you get makeup done someone is close,Ē he says.

Lucas adds tat he has reunited with his cast members online.

ďYea it was really fun, it was like an hour long [the Zoom gathering] because you canít guarantee the connection between that many people so we kept repeating stuff, but it was fun though. We got to talk for an hour which would have never happened if we had not done that.Ē

And while off air relationships between the cast members are always friendly expect the season 4 finale to be much more adversary and intense.

As for the release date of season 5, due to the pandemic the traditional fall launch of MacGyver may be pushed back.

Interview for CBSN Boston: https://boston.cbslocal.com/2020/05/08/luca...-season-finale/


Lucas Till On His Career Goals, ĎMacGyverí: ĎI Just Want To Make People Laugh, Have A Good Timeí


Mac is back for one more go around this season as MacGyver will air its season finale Friday, May 8th at 8:00PM ET/PT, only on CBS and streaming on CBS All Access. In this weekís new episode ďSave + The + Dam + WorldĒ Mac, played by Lucas Till, sees the culmination of a season-long arc where the Phoenix Foundation are battling to stop Codex, a longtime organization with deep roots, whose mission is to save the planet, even if that means killing off a portion of the population.

CBS Localís Matt Weiss spoke to Till over Zoom about MacGyverĎs latest episode and how heís holding up during the Coronavirus pandemic.

MW: Lucas, nice to see you again. How are you holding up with everything?
LT: I am OK. I mean you seem to be doing better than I am. You got the cool hat on, the beard going; itís more than I got.

MW: Hey man, I canít complain. Where are you actually riding everything out?
LT: Iím at my house that I rent in Atlanta. Iím just going to continue to rent it out until things settle down because we shoot here in Atlanta. Iím here 10 months a year I might as well just stay here. Iím from here originally and think Iím going to stay here instead of trying to go back to LA. I never really use my time wisely there.

MW: A lot less crowded too.
LT: It certainly is.

MW: Any new hobbies, activities youíve been picking up?
LT: I started, Nintendo Switch has this game, I think itís called Ring Fit. Itís a video game with fitness. Itís so hard if you set it to the right level but itís great. It makes it into a video game you have to push this ring in. It hurts dude. Itís intense. A full body workout if you want it to be. Do it every day, workout done. Youíre focused on a task instead of Ďoh I got to get to 10 reps.í Itís like no, Iím going to beat this dude.

MW: Iíve played it too and it gives you a better burn than a lot of actual gym equipment, Iím with you 100%.
LT: Right?! Itís crazy.

MW: Now before the whole country got shut down you were still shooting. What was your reaction when you got the call that everything was getting wrapped up early?
LT: It was an announcement while we were on set. It was abrupt because we had agreed to finish. Everything was crazy at this point. No one knew what was happening. We had agreed that we were going to stay a couple extra days and finish with the crew for four extra days.
Weíre basically halfway through an episode; then when we got done with our last shot of the day our producer came up and said, Ďhey guys this is it.í It was abrupt. It was upsetting, but I understand we had to do it.

MW: Have you been keeping in touch with everybody on the cast and crew since youíve all been separated?
LT: I just talked to them two days ago. We had a Zoom call together so that was pretty fun. Iíve been missing those guys, theyíre the people I spend every day with.

MW: Yeah, itís tough. Itís one moment youíre there, one moment youíre not. You donít know when youíre going to see them again.
LT: Yeah not knowing, exactly. You didnít have time to prepare to say goodbye and itís done.

MW: On this Friday nightís episode, a lot of things come to a head that have been building for the whole season with Macís arc coming full circle. What else can you tell us about the new episode?
LT: Friday nightís episode involves some pretty great guest stars you have Tobin Bell, we have Jeri Ryan playing my aunt, as we figured out last couple episodes. We also have the Yellowstone Super Volcano playing a role in a plot to restart the world. Itís pretty epic.

MW: Pretty casual, just restarting the world. I also wanted to ask you, Henry Ian Cusick joined the cast this season. What was it like working with him?

LT: I just, I canít say enough good things. He came at a time when we really, really needed him. He showed up and heís just so talented. Iím sure youíve seen his work in other stuff. Heís so talented but also just a gem and a joy to have around.
You got to spend 60 hours minimum with people on set and you really hope itís with somebody you can get along with. Sometimes you get lucky, Iíve gotten lucky with my whole cast. Heís the perfect addition.

MW: That always makes the work day easier. You literally spend more time with your coworkers than your own family.
LT: Absolutely, absolutely.

MW: Last question before I let you go here. The worldís stuck in this pandemic and stay-at-home orders, but TV is a great way for people to escape and put reality on hold for a bit. What does it mean to you to be on a show like MacGyver that people can sit down together and enjoy themselves for a bit?
LT: I like hearing you say that because I personally I see a lot of people with a lot of different divisions, political beliefs for instance, and I never take sides. I just want people, no matter how much they hate each other and their beliefs to be able to go to the water cooler at work and just go, Ďdid you see that episode of MacGyver?í I love that.
Thatís the only thing I really wanted to do. Other actors they want to win awards, I just want to make people laugh and have a good time and sit and watch whatever Iím doing.

MW: The water cooler award is way more important than an Oscar or an Emmy.
LT: {Laughs] Thatís what I always say. Iíve actually never said that but I will moving forward, giving you full credit.

MW: Much appreciated, spread the word. Well thatís all I have for you today Lucas. Thanks for the time as always and all the best, stay safe man.
LT: Thanks Matt, you too, take care brother.

Don't even know without googling it lol. She barely posted about, repost her friends messages or even celebrate it, citing what's going on in the country. And before that she was mad about Covid...

What's going on the inside is more important than what's goin on on the outside. Her boyfriends post about dark times while talking about them was a bit revealing. I feel she needs some selfcare.

Lucas Till Picks Some Of MacGyver's Most Brilliant Hacks
The star of the CBS action-adventure show shares memories from some of the series' wildest episodes, available to stream on CBS All Access.
Posted on Jun 24, 2020 | 04:15pm

On CBS' MacGyver, lead character Angus MacGyver (Lucas Till) is often required to save the day with a knocked-together contraption that leverages his extensive knowledge of physics and chemistry.

But some solutions are a bit more off-the-wall than othersóor must be conceived under extremely stressful circumstances.

Till took a moment to share memories from filming some of the most difficult situations Mac has found himself inóand the ingenious hacks he devised to get the team out of hot water.


"War Room + Ship" (Season 2, Episode 10)
"War Room + Ship" marked an unusual episode for MacGyver, as the Phoenix Foundation is called in to help save a team of college students trapped on a ship in the Arctic Ocean with no heatóexcept for erupting fires! As the crew awaits a rescue ship, Mac assembles everything available inside the Foundation to use on the endangered vessel, and works with the students' leader, Zoe, via video-chat to keep the crew alive.

"This episode was crazy because it mostly took place in one room," Till recalls. "Took me a couple of weeks to nail those lines down well enough to do it all in two days, and there were so many props. The actress opposite me [Amy Okuda] did such a great job. Another one of our record-setting episodes in a lot of ways."

Mac Hacks: Creating a peristaltic pump; sealing a door with found materials; weighting one side of the boat; use of air filters.


"Mason + Cable + Choices" (Season 3, Episode 22)
The Season 3 finale features the first appearance of a new enemy for the Phoenix Foundation, who comes in the form of an initially unknown perpetrator setting up bombs throughout Los Angeles in a game of cat and mouse designed to torture Mac.

"This is one of my favorite episodes. Peter Wellerís first appearance as Mason," Till explains. "I love a great bad guy. Heís so different from Murdoc, who is a psychopath. Murdoc enjoys the lifestyle. Then thereís Mason, heís a guy not normally prone to the behavior, but is willing to do what he has to, to accomplish a goal, and that goal directly interferes with Mac's life, and is affected by his father's past."

Mac Hacks: Catching a falling elevator; revealing filed-off serial numbers.


"Red Cell + Quantum + Cold + Committed" (Season 4, Episode 2)
At the beginning of Season 4, the former Phoenix Foundation crew finds themselves reunited under the leadership of ex-MI6 agent Russ Taylor (Henry Ian Cusick).

In the second episode of the season, the team is double-crossed by the four-star general who originally hired them. With warrants out for their arrest, Mac, Desi (Levy Tran), Russ, and Riley (Tristin Mays) steal a family minivan to make an escape. Oh, and Mac must resort to using a teddy bear to lead their pursuers in the wrong direction.

"I remember this teddy bear scene, vividly," Till says. "We actually shot that episode first, so we had just met [Henry] Ian [Cusick] and all of sudden we have to work in harmony to craft a scene that was hard to understand without a LOT of rehearsal, but Lexi [director Alexandra La Roche] said, 'Let's jump right in!' I thought, 'Pff... that's a terrible idea, we won't make it five seconds!' She guided us through it perfectly, and we crushed six pages in record time, we might've even gone home early. Still one of the most impressive feats we've done and rarely talk about it."

Mac Hacks: Creating a cold containment unit; teddy bear misdirect.


"Kid + Plane + Cable + Truck" (Season 4, Episode 3)
In "Kid + Plane + Cable + Truck," the team is flying back from a mission when they encounter a small plane whose pilot is unconsciousóand there's a young boy aboard. The team must find a way to board the plane mid-flight and save the pilot.

"They built an actual zipline for us to fly on with the orange diapers," Till says. "Made for some great memories. Also what never ceases to amaze me is how silly something feels, and then it ends up looking so great. This ep was hard trying to fit actors and a camera in a plane. Sometimes looking outside imagining the mountains coming towards you feels ridiculous, and yet it turns out so much fun."

Mac Hacks: AM transmitter; improvised zipline; makeshift defibrillator; magnetizing a plane.


"Windmill + Acetone + Celluloid + Firing Pin" (Season 4, Episode 4)
In the fourth episode of Season 4, the team is called in help rescue survivors from a collapsed building in Germany. But Mac and Riley discover something else: an undetonated bomb from World War II.

"That Bomb Egg Drop was so much fun," Till says. "The fact that they dropped it for real was pretty cool. Someone actually had to build that whole thing."

Mac Hacks: Stairclimber with power drills/wheels to move bomb; egg drop the bomb using wood and rope.
