Bookmarked MacGyver: Watch Jared Padalecki as the Hero's Nephew, Young MacGyver by Trevor KimballTrevor Kimball (tvseriesfinale.com)

It seems that the MacGyver movie has a good chance of being made. What some fans may not know is that this isnโ€™t the first time a new version has been attempted.

In October 2002, Paramount made a deal with the WB network to produce a pilot for a new MacGyver series. Rather than focusing on Richard Dean Andersonโ€™s character, it would revolve around his nephew. Young MacGyver follows him as he winds up joining the Phoenix Foundation.

Casting got underway in late 2002 and they ended up hiring a pre-Supernatural Jared Padalecki, whoโ€™d been working on the networkโ€™s Gilmore Girls. He reportedly had to pass on a role in Cheaper By The Dozen to do it. That part ended up going to Smallvilleโ€™s Tom Welling. The rest of the Young MacGyver pilotโ€™s cast includes Ron Canada, Tracey McCall, Alan Loayza, Lee Burns, Dominic Golden, and Kiele Sanchez.

The project was written by a young writer who was just five years out of Harvard, Samuel Baum. At the time, he jokingly told TV Guide, โ€œItโ€™s been an excruciating writing process for me, because I, of course, have to try all these [makeshift gadgets and] MacGyverisms out before I write them. Iโ€™ve actually blown off every finger on both hands rigging all the things that Clay uses.โ€ His digits must have grown back somehow because Baumโ€™s gone on to write many more projects, most recently creating FOXโ€™s Lie to Me series.
