Henry Ian Cusick Joins the Cast of ‘MacGyver’ For Season Four
Henry Ian Cusick, who starred in The CW’s hit drama The 100, will be joining the cast of the CBS action drama MacGyver as a series regular for its upcoming fourth season.
Cusick will play Russ, a lead opposite of MacGyver (Lucas Till). According to Deadline:
Russ is handsome and quick-witted Oxford-educated ex-military who is a master manipulator and salesman — skilled in propaganda and lie detection with an extremely high emotional intelligence. A very wealthy man, he’s used to getting his way and not beyond enjoying the spoils of war: expensive suits, fast cars, private jets, house in Monte Carlo.
For anyone unfamiliar with MacGyver, the action drama is a reboot of the 1985 TV series of the same name. MacGyver tells the story of Young Angus “Mac” MacGyver, who works for a clandestine organization within the U.S. government. MacGyver relies on his unconventional problem-solving skills to save lives.
While a release date for season four has yet to be announced, you can watch MacGyver on CBS All Access.
