Richard Dean Anderson, also known as the original MacGyver, was almost unrecognizable as he was seen out and about in his Malibu neighborhood for the first time in five and a half years.

The 1980’s heartthrob, who found fame as the ingenious crime-fighting hunk who opted for his Swiss Army Knife and duct tape over guns, has popped up at various overseas events in recent years but has not been snapped in since September 2016.

According to Daily Mail, although the actor has been pictured attending various events overseas, he has not been pictured in Los Angeles since September 2016.

During the rare outing, Anderson appeared to be running errands by himself only days after celebrating his 72nd birthday on January 23.

He sported a pink checkered flannel shirt, green slacks, and black sneakers in the photos obtained by the outlet.The actor also carried a tote bag and displayed a thinner figure and longer hair than when he was last photographed.

Reports indicate he has settled down in his Malibu residence to design and construct his Mid-west style home, which was once prominently featured in Architectural Digest.

The Firehouse actor also owns two other properties: one in northern Minnesota and one in Vancouver. He reportedly splits his time between the three homes since his retirement from the small and big screen more than a decade ago.

The father-of-one is believed to be single following his divorce from actress Apryl A. Prose in 2003 after nearly seven years together. The former couple share one daughter – Wylie Anderson, 23.

The TV icon once opened up about being a father during an interview. He revealed he left Stargate SG-1 because he wanted to spend more time with his child.

“Being a father, well, I don’t know if this is change, but it makes me want to get out of here faster. Get off the clock,” he said. “Just ’cause the baby is my reason for living, my reason for coming to work.”

The actor looks much different than he did in his “MacGyver” days. Anderson currently resides in Malibu, California, where he built his dream home.
