TNT Replaces Brendan Fraser in 'Legends' Pilot TheWrap

TNT has lined up a replacement for Brendan Fraser in the drama pilot "Legends," reports TheWrap.com. The cable channel tapped "Game of Thrones" star Sean Bean for the role, according to the report.

As previously reported, Fraser dropped out of the project over creative differences with showrunner Howard Gordon. The project would have marked Fraser's first starring role on a TV series.

Bean will portray Martin Odum, a deep-cover operative who can transform himself into different people. The show is based on a book by novelist Robert Littell.
