Brendan Fraser is Going Deep Undercover on TNT’s Legends

TNT LogoBrendan Fraser. Master chameleon? That’s the premise of the new TNT drama “Legends”, which has just signed on movie star Brendan Fraser as its leading man.

After making some questionable choices on the big screen (taking a flyer on “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” was definitely one), Fraser is now making a rare foray into TVland with the project. He has a number of TV voice work to his credit, and did a recurring guest stint on the sitcom “Scrubs” for a bit. But this, if I recall correctly, is the first time he’ll be doing regular TV work as the lead.

“Legends” is being developed by Howard Gordon, Jeffrey Nachmanoff (“Homeland” and “24”) and Mark Bomback from an original novel by Robert Littell, and will star Fraser as “Martin Odum (Fraser), a deep-cover operative who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job.”

I guess “Furry Vengeance 2″ didn’t work out? Just kidding. I’m actually a big fan of Fraser, and hope this works out for him.

Cable net TNT, I’ve been told, knows a thing or two about drama.
