So TNT premiered this trailer for Sean Bean’s upcoming TV series “Legends” over three months ago, but, uh, I didn’t see it, so as the saying goes, if I didn’t see it, it’s new to me! So here you go, a two-minute look at Bean’s “Legends,” which from the looks of it is like “24” crossed with “The Bourne Identity.” So does this mean Bean won’t die on the show? That might be a tad hard to do since he’s the star. Then again, they could always go the Doctor Who route and kill him off and replace him with another character. He is a super badass undercover bloke, right? Change his face and all that.
Hey, it’s Sean Bean. Anything’s possible when it comes to cinematic deaths with this guy.
Legends centers on a deep-cover operative named 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.
The series stars Sean Bean, Tina Majorino, Ali Larter, Amber Valletta, Rob Mayes, and Steve Harris.
“Legends” debuts this August 20th on TNT.
