No, it’s not a TV adaptation of ‘The Mummy,’ but don’t think they haven’t tried.  Hollywood star Brendan Fraser is gearing up for his first foray into regular TV, as TNT and ‘Homeland‘ executive producer Howard Gordon have tapped the one-time ‘George of the Jungle’ star for ‘Legends’ of a different kind.  But where was the pilot originally supposed to end up, and what will Fraser’s first regular television role entail?

We haven’t seen Brendan Fraser on TV since a 2004 stint on NBC’s ‘Scrubs,’ but The Hollywood Reporter says the ‘Mummy’ actor is apparently returning to TV for TNT’s upcoming drama ‘Legends.’  Based on the Robert Littell spy novel of the same name and developed by ‘Homeland’s Howard Gordon, ‘Legends’ follows undercover operative Martin Odum, who has the incredible ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. Odum’s own identity comes into question when a mysterious stranger suggests to the man that Martin isn’t quite who he thinks he is.

Fraser will also serve as an executive producer on the pilot, which was originally marketed for NBC.  Jeffrey Nachmanoff (‘The Day After Tomorrow’), Alexander Cary (‘Homeland’) and Jonathan Levin (‘Charmed’) are also developing the project, for an unknown future release date.

Well, what say you?  Do you think Fraser can make a new home for himself on TV with TNT’s ‘Legends?’  What do you think about the story?
