Sean Bean to star in TNT's Legends as a guy who is alive 

In his first lead television role in which it seems like he might stick around for a while, Sean Bean has signed on to star in TNT's Legends, replacing Brendan Fraser in the drama from Homeland's Howard Gordon. Fraser reportedly exited the series due to "creative differences"—which are things that Brendan Fraser has, apparently—handing the Game Of Thrones star the opportunity to take on the role of "deep-cover operative Martin Odum, who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. But his own identity comes into question when a mysterious stranger suggests that Martin isn’t who he thinks he is." For instance, perhaps this stranger suggests that Martin's actually Jarod from NBC's late-'90s series The Pretender, whose own uncanny resemblance to this show is perhaps one explanation for why NBC developed, then ultimately passed Legends on to TNT. Or maybe this stranger whispers to Sean Bean that he's actually been dead this whole time. You'll never see that coming.
