Sean Bean replaces Brendan Fraser in TNT pilot Legends

Date December 05, 2012

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - TNT's upcoming pilot "Legends" is getting a Stark makeover.

Sean Bean, who played ill-fated Lord of Winterfell Eddard Stark in HBO's "Game of Thrones," has signed on to replace Brendan Fraser in TNT's upcoming pilot "Legends."

Fraser dropped out of the pilot last month; the show would have marked his first starring turn on a TV series.

Bean will play Martin Odum, a deep-cover operative who has a chameleon-like ability to transform himself into a different person for each mission. The project is based on a book by spy novelist Robert Littell.

"Homeland" duo Howard Gordon and Alexander Cary are executive-producing the pilot, which comes from Fox 21, as are Jeffrey Nachmanoff ("The Day After Tomorrow") and Jonathan Levin ("Charmed").

Deadline first reported news of Bean's "Legends" casting.
