'MacGyver' Season 4 Episode 7: 'Impractical Jokers' stars to join show for a dinner-date murder-mystery
CBS's 'MacGyver' has had a number of great guest stars popping in every once in a while since the reboot started back in 2016 but in Season 4 Episode 7 things get a little "impractical", shall we say? That's right, the stars of truTV's 'Impractical Jokers' are coming to 'MacGyver' for a dinner-date murder-mystery.
All four of the 'Jokers', Brian 'Q' Quinn, Joe Gatto, Sal Vulcano and James 'Murr' Murray are going to be appearing in the episode 'Mac + Desi + Riley + Aubrey'. Interestingly enough, the cast of 'MacGyver' has a little bit of history with the 'Jokers'.
Tristin Mays, who plays Riley Davis on 'MacGyver', had previously made a guest appearance in 'Impractical Jokers' Season 8 Episode 4. In that appearance, she pretended to be Murray's girlfriend for a challenge in a supermarket. You can check out the hilarious video right here.
In the upcoming episode, James Murray will be playing the Maître d’ of a restaurant where Riley and her boyfriend Aubrey (Leonardo Nam) go on a double date with Angus 'Mac' MacGyver (Lucas Till) and Desi Nguyen (Levy Tran). Vulcano will be playing Chef Salvatore, Quinn will be playing a character named Dale and Gatto will be playing Larry, a name that's been something of a running joke on 'Impractical Jokers' throughout its run.
For those who don't know, 'Impractical Jokers' is an improv comedy series that follows the adventures of four real-life friends who compete ridiculous challenges designed to embarrass each other. The show first began airing in 2011, completed its 8th season in 2019 and spawned a feature-length movie that was released on February 21, 2020.
The cast of 'MacGyver' Season 4 includes Till as Angus 'Mac' MacGyver, Mays as Riley Davis, Justin Hires as Wilt Bozer, Meredith Eaton as Matty Weber, Tran as Desi Nguyen and Henry Ian Cusick as Russ Taylor. Other guest stars appearing in the episode include Tate Donovan, Leonardo Nam, David Shae, Devon Sawa, David E Collier, Angela Zhou, Dwayne Boyd and Rob Guimarra.
'MacGyver' Season 4 airs new episodes every Friday at 8 pm ET, exclusively on CBS. Season 9 of 'Impractical Jokers' is expected to begin airing sometime in 2020 though it remains to be seen if the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic might delay the season.
