I do hope they leave the door open for an RDA appearance. If the money is right, RDA will do it. He wouldn't let his fans down, guaranteed !

I don't know. He said they never asked him to be a part of it, and then he said, "And that's good, since it saved me from the awkwardness of having to tell them no."

But I don't think it would be just about the money. More important, I think, is what they want his cameo to be like. He has said several times that he'd have fun playing an older, creakier MacGyver, with back pain, sore limbs, etc. I think if they come up with a fun role like that for him, then yeah, he might stop by for an episode or two. He seems to just be opposed to the idea of playing Mac as if he's still a spry young 35 year old guy.

Another thought just occurred to me: If this new MacGyver is really Mac's son, and not a re-imagining of the original Mac, that opens the door for other old cast members to come back. Imagine how much fun it would be to see Bruce McGill as an older Jack Dalton, roping Mac's son into some crazy scheme! I know it's extremely unlikely, but it's possible.

I still don't get the son angle if that is indeed what they are going for considering he hated the name Angus... The WB show solved this by having an equally terrible first name Clay but meh

that's exactly what would make the new show great at least from fan's perspective, having old cast members at least short appearances and if possible RDA....

As it was mentioned before, Star Wars 7 had the original members of the previous movies, it was a commercial success even though the story wasn't good enough!

Quick question...With al the retooling going on, reshooting the pilot and such, will the new pilot be bumped back date-wise?

I wouldn't think so.

CBS has a schedule to fill, and they won't be able to deviate from that - hence why CBS executives have drafted in show runner Peter Lenkov to make sure, all will go to plan.

Expect new character announcements imminently, and I reckon it will follow a similar theme... (Wilt Bozer etc), characters we will be familiar to use.

Me thinks, They will be starting filming during the first week of July. H.50 should be kicking off season 7, around the same time.

They are probably going through script run throughs and final cast sessions, in advance of principal photography.

Nice detective work, Dash.

I had predicted that they would begin filming the first week in July. Guess I was right!

I've just spotted a tweet by Justin Hires - were he says a great article about my casting. Unfortunately, it will not open because I am outside the U.S.A

Perhaps you may have a MacGyverism to by-pass security, and get into the main-frame of this web-page?

Go for it Dash, or should I call you MacGoogle? thumbsup.gif

Tried that article, too and couldn't open it. I haven't tried anything else; I figured there are enough fans in this forum that at least one of them will succeed in bringing the article in here without us having to "MacGoogle" something happy.gif

Any theories as to why they're filming in Atlanta rather than LA? Some possibilities:
--it's cheaper
--Atlanta has something in the way of outdoor remotes that work better for the plot
--the story will take place in Atlanta (that would take some getting used to)

A lot of shows are filming there now. It's become known as the Hollywood of the South.

State officials say Georgia is attractive for its diversity, and the tax credits are simply an appetizer. Productions can find coastlines, leafy neighborhoods, farmland and a sprawl of skyscrapers and interstates, all reachable within hours.

Lucas Till looks very MacGyver-like in this still from his movie called 'Monster Trucks' biggrin.gif You could imagine him as MacGyver doing a MacGyverism with the machine he's tinkering with biggrin.gif

I hope they keep the hair similar to this, or his hair from the recent CBS soiree. I like those quite better than the one from the trailer, coz it makes him look more mature but still young and fresh to look at biggrin.gif

This is from Peter Wallack. He played the stunt double for Lucas Till in the Unaired Pilot. I'm not sure if Peter will also be involved in the reshoot, but he sure seems to be a MacGyver fan happy.gif

Wonder where he got that painting from?

I don't think so. They've named one of main characters Jack Dalton, and they're forming the Phoenix Foundation. I'm taking these as the show will be an alternate universe kinda thing. Crossing fingers! I don't want that tired story line of "Son of Macgyver" or "Son of Godzilla" etc, etc, etc... I'd prefer a fresh start, not tied to history, just tied to the spirit of the characters. smile.gif

No article ever mentions the words "prequel" anymore (like they used to in the beginning) - like CBS, they're always talking about a "reimagination".

So I think it was intended to be a prequel at first and probably still was when Colaizzo wrote the script for the unaired pilot; but I guess they changed the concept.

Scott Klein was involved in the unaired Pilot. I finally found his FB Profile and look what his last entry was via https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100...7485073&fref=ts

makes me wonder what else we have missed while they were shooting; they must have put dozens of Pictures on social media that we never found...

They begin filming both MacGyver and Hawaii Five-0 on the 7th July,

I wish them the best of luck, but I wish to refrain from seeing any spoilers until the ep airs in September.

To avoid all pics and spoilers... will be the real challenge!

Best of luck with your detective work Dash!

I thought about putting everything concerning the unaired Pilot in here since it's not really spoilerish anymore (it's not likely we ever get to see it); everything for the Pilot Episode 2.0. should get a new place, no?

On the Twilight forums during the Twilight filming days, we used to open a special "Spoiler Thread"- so People could peruse the other threads without fear of being spoilered by pics, sightings and discussions and don't need to stay away...

I just found this one via Twitter... the caption says "Me and the #LucasTill on the set of Macgyver...The Young Bull got crazy talent". Considering the hair, this one must be from the unaired pilot set?

Otherwise it's a crazy flashback scene we never got to see so far laugh.gif
