ET chatted with Lucas Till, the star of the upcoming MacGyver reboot, at Comic-Con on Thursday, where we found out what will be different about the ingenious agent this time around.
"My stunt double has been just kind of sitting on the sidelines the whole time," Till told ET, which is a world apart from the original MacGyver, Richard Dean Anderson, who complained of not being allowed to do the action scenes himself.
Another difference is that Till, who is perhaps best known for playing Havok in the X-Men movies, is 25. In contrast, Anderson was 35 when ET first spoke with him in 1985.
"I do skydive and scuba dive and ride motorcycles," Anderson told us 31 years ago. "The ironic thing is now that I have a series that's going to allow me to do such things, they won't let me do them. The stuntmen get to have all the fun."
When we chatted with Till, he was enjoying Comic-Con with CSI alum George Eads, who has been helping him out on set.
"I was telling [Till] as he was jumping out of a helicopter yesterday before we rolled, I said, 'Lucas, man, be careful. If you get hurt, we are not going to be in a good place,'" Eads told ET. "He said, 'Don't be worried about it!'"
In the reimagining of the '80s TV classic, Till stars as the titular character, who creates a secret organization where he uses his knack for problem solving in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from occurring.
MacGyver premieres Friday, Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
