I believe RDA was born to be a star, definitely the role of Macgyver
was his most recognized character, but if he don't want to do it....  sad.gif

I actually heard that he is interested. Check this out. It's an old link, but I doubt he's changed his mind: RDA on the new Mac movie
QUOTE
Well it would be nice to see at least one movie where Anderson plays Mac again.
Or new series where he would Mac in old days.

That would be what I would go for with the movie. Maybe incorporate his son somehow, either as an accomplice, or even just as a "Dad, should you really still be doing this" kinda character. In fact, maybe incorporate as much as the original show as possible. Unfortunately there will be no Dana Elcar as Pete Thornton sad.gif , and his character really wouldn't work without him, but it can include Bruce McGill as an older but just as mischievous Jack Dalton, and possibly Teri Hatcher as Penny Parker and Elyssa Davalos as Nikki Carpenter, as well as new characters, obviously.
Now I'm all excited, hahaha. biggrin.gif

I think what fans (including myself) really want to see in a new MacGyver movie is not a re-made version of the original, but a current movie about MacGyver now with Richard Dean Anderson playing the role! What would MacGyver be doing now in his 60's? How would handle his everyday life? Would he still be working? Would he have rejoined the Phoenix Foundation? So essentially it would just pick up where the last MacGyver TV movie (Trail To Doomsday) left off.
If the new movie plans to be a re-made version of the original (in the way Star Trek was remade for the movie in 2009) then I am not even remotely interested in seeing it. My entire family and all my friends are huge MacGyver fans and they all feel exactly the same way as I do. I just hope that RDA and the movie writers, producers, company, etc will feel the same way and give the fans what we really want..... a real MacGyver movie with RDA playing the role at this point in his life. That would be out-of-this-world amazing! smile.gif

I want a MacGyver movie that reunites Mac and Nikki, who then work as a team to defeat Murdoc for the final time. I want one massive showdown between the two of them...

Or maybe a "Son of MacGyver", with RDA coaching and mentoring his son...

And you could always bring in a daughter to Murdoch on the 'baddies' side.. tongue.gif


The possibilities are endless.
Bring on "MacGyvers ~ the Next Generation.." happy.gif

smile.gif On the subject of a suitable actor to play a younger MacGyver, if need-be, I can think of several current action-man actors, who could possibly be worked over to fill such a role, including ~

Viggo Mortensen
Michael Weatherley
David Wenham
Matthew MacFadyen
Eric Christian Olsen


~ just a couple of ideas... MacG.gif

Than I'd go for that last one. Viggo Mortensen might still be tough guy but you'd be surprised how old he is. He's early fifties I think.

David Wenham is like late forties, I presume.

The dude at the end with the blond hair. Never heard of him but his hair looks MacGyverish so he'd do.

In my opinion, and it's just my opinion, MacGyver is not a gimmicky way of fixing things, or a physical action hero--he is an outlook on life. And I think a lot of that came from RDA. If you look at the first season of MacGyver, he is playing a sort of James Bond spoof which is the way it was written. But as RDA gained more creative input, MacGyver became a philosophy of caring about people and principles enough to always find an option--to never give up on doing good. That's something I'm really not sure the studios will ever understand, thus, I dread any attempt to make a MacGyver movie. But alas, profit rules in Hollywood, so it is probably inevitable that we see a MacGyver caricature made eventually. sad.gif

Now there's an idea!! I love it--MacGyver (played by RDA of course) has a daughter who follows in his footsteps. That would be a great twist on the story, give the studios a way to make money (with a sexy actress), AND preserve the RDA/MacGyver image. Maybe SHE could finally defeat Murdoch--or reform him--and make Dad proud. biggrin.gif And Miss Wylie Anderson could play her as a young girl. wink.gif

Lee David Zlotoff would be a dream director, wouldn't it? Still my vote would go to JJ Abrams. Just to name somebody of course.

huh? i don't think he's much of a director is he?

To say I've given a great deal of thought to this subject would be a gross understatement...

As an RDA fan, I have always pictured him when I imagine MacGyver, when I'm writing a story or reading a bit of fanfic. It's quite easy for me to slip into the idea that Rick and Mac were the same being, seamlessly inseparable in my mind.

THEN I saw Stargate:SG1, and Legend, and Firehouse, and Pandora's Clock, and a number of other films and tv shows that showed me that RDA was a fine actor who could bring character to any role he applied himself. I am also privileged to have actually met The Man, which gives me some perspective on him as an individual, instead of a misty, mythical hero.

Then, people in (or near) Hollywood began to make (and remake) movies based on books and films that I'd seen and loved, and they actually did a fairly good job.

I can get behind a new face for MacGyver, providing that the film is made with respect and love for the characters and the story... and the legend that 'MacGyver' has become. There are high standards to measure up to, yeah, but I can definitely imagine it.

I hope that, one day, I'll see it! smile.gif

If they want to put RDA in the movie they should just continue on and have Angus Jr have an adventure. RDA could have an cameo in the beginning, maybe they are camping and mac is testing Jr on all the things he has learned in the years its been off the air. biggrin.gif matchs.JPG
