Michelle Krusiec cast in James Wan’s new “MacGyver” reboot pilot for CBS


Angry Asian Man:
Michelle Krusiec has been cast as a series regular in the CBS drama pilot MacGyver, executive producer James Wan‘s reimagining of the classic 1980s action/adventure series.

Krusiec will play a character named Agent Croix, who works for the Department of Homeland Security.

The original MacGyver, which ran for seven seasons on ABC, starred Richard Dean Anderson as a resourceful top agent for the Phoenix Foundation, who never carried a gun and drew on his genius scientific knowledge to thwart bad guys and get out of jams.

The new series, co-written by Paul Downs Colaizzo and Brett Mahoney and directed by David Von Ancken, centers around a twenty-something Angus MacGyver, who is recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening.

The pilot is produced by James Wan, alongside the original series’ creator Lee David Zlotoff and executive producer Henry Winkler, as well as Colaizzo, Mahoney, Ancken and Michael Clear.

Krusiec has upcoming recurring role on the CBS cop drama Hawaii Five-0, and can be seen in the indie feature The Invitation, which opens in limited theatrical release on April 8.
