Amy Acker Spies MacGyver Role

Amy Acker will play a person of interest when CBS’ MacGyver reboot premieres this fall.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the Person of Interest alum will guest-star in the freshman drama’s second episode as a CIA operative who was working undercover in Caracas, gathering intel on an international arms dealer, when his organization kidnapped her.

MacGyver (played by Lucas Till) and former CIA agent Jack Dalton (CSI‘s George Eads) are tasked with bringing Acker’s agent home, all as Jack grapples with long-unresolved feelings for his onetime colleague.

MacGyver premieres Friday, Sept. 23 at 8/7c, leading into Hawaii Five-0.

Prior to her run as POI‘s Root, Acker’s TV credits included CSI, Dollhouse, No Ordinary Family, Happy Town, Alias and of course Angel.
