They're from the CBS Press Site: https://www.viacomcbspressexpress.com/cbs-e...macgyver/photos

But the site is blocked outside the US and without press credentials, you can't download them. It's really only a preview with thumbnails, so I usually don't bother putting the link here and wait until one of the "free" sites (SpoilerTV, Seat42F, What2Vue or KsiteTV) has them on their site.

That's the link I usually post in here ;-)

Another Sneak Peek plus an interview with Henry Ian Cusick for tonight's Episode 5x06: https://www.tvinsider.com/985072/macgyver-p...-romance-video/


'MacGyver' Preview: Henry Ian Cusick on Sword Fights & 'Lost' Fans (VIDEO)

Jim Halterman
TODAY, 10:00 AM


If you're a MacGyver fan patiently waiting for Phoenix Foundation owner Russ Taylor (Henry Ian Cusick) to have some romance on the CBS crime drama, the wait is over. On the January 22 quarantine-themed episode, a COVID-related shacking up results in a deeper relationship for Russ and his long-distance occasional fling, Sofia Walker (Camilla Arfwedson).

Check out the exclusive clip from the episode above and, below, our chat with Cusick, who talks Russ's dynamic with Sofia, shooting an intimate sword fight with COVID safety restrictions, and whether fans from Lost (where Cusick played heroic Desmond Hume) still reach out to him.


It's about time Russ had some love in his life.

Henry Ian Cusick: Yes! Russ is getting a romance! Camilla is lovely to work with. She brings something else to the show [as Sofia] in that she's not all that she seems.

I do prefer the action stuff and running around, and the romance kind of takes you away from all that, but — the stuff that I've shot with Camilla will intertwine action and romance. Of course with Russ, it's not just going to be romance. There's always going to be humor in there because he can be so, what's the word? Buffoonish?


Do you think viewers will look at Russ differently now that he's involved with someone?

You did get a taste of it last season in a flashback episode with a girl he went to see, and Russ has dropped lines that he's been married more than once. But he's certainly the older character in the show so, is this his last hope at a full fledged, proper settling down romance? I don't know. I doubt it, but I'm thinking that he thinks that, so that could be interesting.


Apparently there's a sword fighting that happens while Russ and Sofia are in lockdown that has a seductive element to it?

That sword fight was interesting. Because of COVID, it just takes up a lot more time [to shoot]. You're testing and cleaning and resetting and everything just takes a lot of time with filming. They wrote it and the director said, "We're going to cut it because it's just going to take up too much." We kind of fought for it and I'm so glad that that sword fight was back in. It just makes it a little bit more sexy, and Camilla's character is aristocratic so it brings that element to it.


What draws Russ to Sophia?

They've been longtime friends and have been having these long-distance flings. So they meet up and hook up for a couple of days and that's all the relationship was. Now with the quarantine episode, it's more about, "Well, we've been together for a month now and we get on really well. How far are we going to take it?" Also in that episode, I get to play a musical instrument, which is great.


Which instrument?

The drums, so that's quite fun.


Your former Lost co-star, Jorge Garcia, is guesting in the episode that airs on February. Do you still hear from Lost fans?

Oh, for sure. I have some Lost fans that came with me to The 100 and then came with me to MacGyver. Coming to The 100 was an easy switch from Lost because they're similar shows, but MacGyver is a big jump, so I'm very grateful, But, especially now during COVID, MacGyver is such a fun show to watch.


MacGyver, Fridays 8/7c, CBS.

Yesterday, Levy Tran and François Chau (who guest starred on both OG MacGyver and Reboot Episode 1×19) attended a panel for The Song Collective, a series of free virtual discussions to celebrate Vietnamese creatives.

Levy revealed that the casting agency had actually been looking for a hispanic actor when she auditioned for the role. After she booked the part, they re-wrote the character and implemented Levy’s Vietnamese roots into Desi.

It states 2018 so maybe the episode in Tschernobyl (2x17)?

He was on "The Coltons" episode.

His tweet is funny.

Henry Ian Cusick Talks About His Mini Lost Reunion With Jorge Garcia Happening on MacGyver Tonight
FEBRUARY 12, 2021 – 1:17 PM


Henry Ian Cusick will reunite with his Lost co-star Jorge Garcia on tonight’s episode of MacGyver, but with an interesting twist. Cusick, of course, stars on the CBS series as Russ Taylor, the new owner of the Phoenix Foundation, but when Garcia joins the cast, it will be as his Hawaii Five-0 character Jerry Ortega. And why not? All his years working with Five-0 didn’t cure Jerry of his conspiracy theory beliefs, so he is a great ally when it comes to taking on a case that involves the nefarious Codex.
So, on the “SOS + Hazmat + Ultrasound + Frequency + Malihini” episode, Taylor and Bozer (Justin Hires) team up with Jerry to infiltrate one of the remaining Codex cells.
“When we first meet Jerry, we bring him in because we don’t believe who he is first of all,” Cusick tells Parade.com in this exclusive interview. “When we bring him in, we check him out and, then, it’s a slow realization of, ‘He’s actually pretty good for a conspiracy theories type of guy,’ and we warm to him.”
Even though both men had continued to live in Hawaii after wrapping Lost–Garcia as a member of the aforementioned Five-0 cast and Cusick on The 100–they hadn’t seen each other for a while. And neither had seen each other in their more recent series.
“When I saw him doing his Five-0 character, which is quite different from Hurley, I was like, ‘Oh, OK, that’s a cool character,’” Cusick says. “And he hadn’t seen me in MacGyver, so he was, ‘Oh, so that’s what you’re doing. You’re not playing Desmond in a Scottish accent.’ So, we were just filling each other in on what the characters were. But when I heard he was coming to the show, I thought, ‘The Lost fans will be excited.’”
Jerry’s time on MacGyver was so successful that the door was left open for Garcia to return to the series if he is interested, but for now, his alter ego Jerry Ortega is moving on because he has other conspiracies to follow up on.
Following is more of the conversation with Cusick about his character Russ Taylor and why he thinks his girlfriend Sofia Walker (Camilla Arfwedson) stole treasure documents from his house.

Russ came in as a bad guy turned altruistic. How successfully do you feel he has been at integrating himself with the team?[/B]
I think he’s kind of forced himself on the team in many ways because he bought the company and saved it financially. I think he’s basically just trying to play James Bond. He’s got more money than he knows what to do with. A part of him is altruistic, but is it completely? I think he enjoys the action side of it, the thinking he’s doing good. I don’t think he really wants to run the company. That’s why Matty (Meredith Eaton) runs it. She’s, obviously, much more efficient at running it and I don’t think he has any interest in doing that side of it, but I think he liked the idea of being this James Bond, super-spy kind of guy.

You once described Russ as “buffoonish.” How so?
I’ve never really played comedy before, and I’m trying to figure it out because there are moments that Russ is quite funny. There is something buffoonish in the sense that when he makes mistakes, he’s funniest. He obviously doesn’t think it’s funny, but other people find it funny. I was trying to figure out this comedy thing because there’s something quite clown-like about Russ in that his comedy comes from his sense of thinking he’s cool, but he does things and they’re just so not cool.
I think that’s where his humor comes from. Justin is funny; he’s a comedian. Russ is not particularly funny, but when he makes mistakes, when he makes a lot of them and he’s not aware of them, and then people point them out, I realized, “Oh, that’s funny.”
I’m trying to figure out what is the funny side of Russ, and I think it’s when he thinks he’s being cool, but he’s not really being cool. And that’s what I mean by buffoonish. He’s trying to be James Bond, but he’s not at all.

In his bad guy days, Russ was a weapons dealer and that’s how he made a lot of his money. How does he make his money now?
I think he’s invested wisely. I think he’s made a lot of money from his wheeling and dealings. What you don’t probably see on screen, he still has a lot of wheeling and dealing going on, which you may touch on later. He’s obsessed with money and making money, and he’s still quite tight. So, I think he’s got other things going on in his life, in terms of money-making ventures.

Maybe we saw in that the “Quarantine” episode, where he was trying to track down lost treasure, and then Sofia walks in and sees the room, and then she steals the documentation that he had. Was it a setup?
That’s good. I’m glad your interest is peaked with that storyline. We’re actually shooting that. Because of COVID, our schedules got messed up, so I don’t know when the episodes are going to air. Camilla is here in Atlanta at the moment. So, we’re touching on that episode now.
Was it a crime of convenience that she just happened to see it? Or was it a big set-up? I could give you spoilers, but this next episode that we’re shooting answers that. He, obviously, has grown to care about her over the quarantine period. Does she feel the same about him, or was she just into his money? Or getting this treasure? That will be answered very, very soon.

It was interesting that it was his grandfather who first told him the story about Spain invading Peru, and to see a little of Russ’ background.
Hopefully, what we will discover about Russ is just because he says something about himself, it doesn’t make it so. He is still a bit of a fibber. His default is that he will tell a story before the truth, especially when it comes to his feelings. So, anything that he says, I would take with a pinch of salt until you find documentation.

So, is the stuff about his grandfather raising him and his attending Oxford on a scholarship true?
I’m sure most of his life comes from a grain of truth. One of the things that I spoke to the writers about is, I said, “Just because he says stuff, he still hasn’t changed his spots completely.” He still has a side of him that is untruthful. He’s not 100 percent truthful.

There’s a lot of science that goes on, on the set. Have you learned anything?
Have I learned anything? I’m sure I have because I’m on-set and I pick things up. The one that stood out was making a satellite dish out of a dustbin lid. I’m thinking, “Huh? Could that really work?” I guess because we have so many people who watch it purely for the science, they go, “Oh, yes. That could work. That would actually do it.”

MacGyver airs Friday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
