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.
