While we all remember what happened the last time Sean Bean headed up a 10-episode series on cable, something tells us TNT's 'Legends' has a bit more stability in mind. The cable network has officially greenlit for 2014 the new spy thriller series based on the Robert Littell spy novel of the same name, starring Bean, Ali Larter and 'True Blood's Tina Majorino, but will 'Legends' prove the next big hit for TNT? Preview the new spy thriller series inside!
Of all the various TV pilots in development, one show we're certainly keeping our eye on comes from 'Homeland' producer Howard Gordon as that of TNT's upcoming sci-fi pilot 'Legends.' The pilot has already achieved notoriety for casting Brendan Fraser in the lead role, only to replace him with 'Game of Thrones' star Sean Bean, and now former 'Heroes' star Ali Larter has officially joined the pilot in the female lead. Find out the 'Legends' of TNT's latest hit inside!
The last time we checked, TNT wasn't in the habit of killing off its lead characters, so could the cable network have tied 'Game of Thrones' star and death-prone actor Sean Bean to his longest role yet? We'll find out, as the actor has signed on to head up TNT's upcoming Howard Gordon-produced drama 'Legends,' replacing actor Brendan Fraser in the lead role. Find out how Sean Bean is the stuff of 'Legends' inside!
Easy come, easy go. A few weeks ago we were excited to learn that Brendan Fraser would make his first foray into regular TV with TNT's 'Legends,' particularly given the series derived from 'Homeland' executive producer Howard Gordon. Now it seems that Fraser has dropped out of the project for personal reasons, but what could cause such a sudden departure? And what does it mean for his TV development deal?
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?
