MacGyver has some new company. Deadline reports Levy Tran has joined the CBS TV show’s third season.
A reboot of the ’80s action drama, the series centers on Angus “Mac” MacGyver (Lucas Till), a 20-something adventurer who uses his vast scientific knowledge and extraordinary talent for unconventional problem solving to save the world. The cast also includes Tristin Mays, Justin Hires, and Meredith Eaton.
On MacGyver, Tran will be playing “Desiree Nguyen (Desi), who joins the Phoenix Foundation to protect MacGyver (Lucas Till) and his team on their global missions.”
Tran is joining the CBS series just afters fans said farewell to regular cast member George Eads, who plays Jack Dalton. But is that really the last we’ll see from Eads?
According to co-star Justin Hires (via TVInsider), Eads could return:
I mean, George is leaving… I look at it as a break. I wouldn’t be surprised if he came back.”
What do you think? Do you watch MacGyver? Will you keep watching without Eads?
