Lucas Till Boards FX's 'The Spook Who Sat by the Door' Following The End of 'MacGyver'

Lucas Till has found his first role after the end of MacGyver.

The 30-year-old actor will star opposite Nafessa Williams in FX’s The Spook Who Sat by the Door drama pilot, according to TVLine.

Nafessa also just came from a show that was ending, Black Lightning.

Based on the novel by Sam Greenlee, the 1960s-set Spook stars Y’lan Noel as Dan Freeman, the first Black operative in the CIA.

A patriot, Vietnam veteran and, secretly, a revolutionary, Freeman goes through high-level combat and espionage training, only to be assigned to the “reprographics” (aka photocopying) department, positioned by the door so visitors can see there is a Black employee.

Lucas will play CIA Agent Graham Renfroe in the potential series, while Nafessa will star as high-class working girl Etta Henry.

Nathan Darrow
and Tom Irwin will round out the cast as CIA Assistant Director Alfred Ames and CIA Director Jack Turner.

Lee Daniels will be an executive producer on the project, with Leigh Dana Jackson serving as writer and showrunner.

Just after the series finale of MacGyver, fans reacted to the news about what would’ve happened in season six.
