TNT's "Legends" debuts August 13, and one thing is for certain about the crime series based on Robert Littell's book "Legends: A Novel of Dissimulation:" It's going to be an extraordinary showcase for star Sean Bean, the "Game of Thrones" alum who plays undercover FBI agent Martin Odum. While tackling every case, Odum changes personalities and becomes a different "legend" to solve the crime -- and every embodied legend has his own life and lifestyle. Is he crazy? Maybe. But the thrill is watching Odum question his own sanity as his transitions seamlessly into his new identities. Fortunately, Odum's costars are a bit more down to Earth, at least in theory: Crystal McGuire (Ali Larter) plays his fellow operative who has her own personal history with the mysterious guy. We interviewed Larter at Comic-Con to discuss Bean's acting, the sly complexities of her character, and whether "Legends" is crazier than Larter's most melodramatic movie, »

In TNT’s upcoming undercover-espionage thriller Legends, Sean Bean plays Martin Odum, a deep-cover operative who’s uniquely adept at adopting new identities. Perhaps predictably, there are an awful lot of people who want to kill him—and that’s the least of his problems. The show debuts on August 13, but EW is excited to share an exclusive new trailer for the series, which hints at the show’s twisty serialized arc, plus a look at Legends co-stars Ali Larter, Tina Majorino, Steve Harris, and Morris Chestnut. Yes, Sean Bean says, “Move, and I’ll blow your teeth out.” No, »

(Cbr) Zachary Quinto and Ali Larter don’t want to return to "Heroes," and that works just fine for creator Tim Kring. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the "Heroes: Reborn" mastermind opened up about his plans for the resurrected superhero series, stressing that he plans to emphasize a new cast of heroes and villains — with the exception of a handful of veterans returning to the mix, like Jack Coleman as Noah Bennet. “The vast, vast majority are brand new characters, brand new ideas,” Kring said about the new incarnation, which is set in a post-Season 4 universe where the existence of super-powered people became public knowledge. “[Bringing back previous characters is] really only to give a sense of continuity and a tether to the original world. If it was all completely brand new, we’d miss certain elements that need to be there to give you that bridge to cross to something new. I approached Coleman because »

Back in February, NBC announced that it is reviving Heroes for a new 13-part miniseries entitled Heroes Reborn, which was described as a reboot of the once-popular TV series. However, since then it’s been revealed that Jack Coleman is reprising the role of Noah Bennet (a.k.a. the Man in the Horn-Rimmed Glasses), indicating that Heroes Reborn would be more continuation than reboot. In recent days, both Ali Larter and Zachary Quinto have revealed that they won’t be returning, and now show creator Tim Kring has spoken to Entertainment Weekly about the revival, stating that it will have a strong focus on new characters.
“It takes place in a post-season 4 universe. So it will tie into some of the ideas that were left dangling. The vast, vast majority are brand new characters, brand new ideas. [Bringing back previous characters is] really only to give a sense of continuity and a tether to the original world. »

(Cbr) As of now, only one former "Heroes" actor is returning for NBC’s upcoming "Heroes: Reborn" miniseries: Jack Coleman, the man behind the Horn-Rimmed Glasses. Here’s someone who won’t be joining Coleman for the show’s revival: Zachary Quinto. The "Star Trek" actor, who played the brain-dissecting chameleon Sylar for the original four seasons, says he doesn’t expect to return, in part because of scheduling issues. “I’ve been in touch with Tim [Kring, creator] and he told me they were doing this and we left the door open for me to be involved,” he told IGN, “The trouble is really my availability. I don’t know that it would really even be possible.” Beyond his availability, Quinto said he’s not sure he should revisit a role as iconic as Sylar, preferring to leave it in the past. “That experience and role and opportunity really changed my »

Back in February, NBC surprised viewers watching their Olympic coverage by debuting a brief teaser for Heroes Reborn, a 13-episode mini-series that revisits the hit series Heroes. It has already been announced that Heroes star Jack Coleman is returning as Noah Bennet (a.k.a. The Man in the Horned Rim Glasses/Hrg), but other original cast members such as Zachary Quinto, Hayden Panettiere and Ali Larter have expressed doubts about whether they will return or not.
Series creator Tim Kring revealed in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly that the story will primarily focus on a number of brand new characters.
"The vast, vast majority are brand new characters, brand new ideas. [Bringing back previous characters is] really only to give a sense of continuity and a tether to the original world. If it was all completely brand new, we'd miss certain elements that need to be there to give you that bridge to cross to something new. »
The man behind NBC’s Heroes is giving some hints about his miniseries revival plan. NBC intends to air Heroes: Reborn sometime next year as a 13-episode miniseries. Already on board is the man in the horn-rimmed glasses, Jack Coleman (Noah Bennet). But how many other returning favorites will be cast? And what’s the creative vision for the new show?
In the past few days, two Heroes veterans have expressed some thoughts to the press about returning to the project. Ali Larter (Niki and Jessica Sanders) told reporters she couldn’t join due to her commitment to TNT »

Our current Great Age of The Reboot is not limited to movies: NBC’s plan to return to the world of their seminal superhero TV series Heroes in the form of the 13-episode miniseries Heroes: Reborn is itself a “soft reboot” of that show’s universe. While hardcore fans of the original show’s run are no doubt delighted, general audience reaction is mixed at best.
The first season of Heroes was a bonafide phenomenon, presaging comic book-inspired properties like the CW’s Arrow and the upcoming Gotham and Constantine by proving that dark, mature superhero storylines could not only work for television, but also result in major viewership. The show’s ratings quickly dropped off, however, and it was canceled after four seasons.
Heroes: Reborn is getting a prequel webseries before its premiere in 2015, and ...

Back in February, NBC announced that they’d be reviving Heroes, which for a short time was their most popular and beloved show. As you will likely recall, it all went to pot after the first season, but the studio managed to keep it limping along until 2010 when it was mercifully put out of its misery.
The series will follow a new group of characters, but that the door is open for original series stars to appear. We know that Jack Coleman, who played Hrg a.k.a. Noah Bennet, will be back (effectively making him the Agent Coulson of the Heroes universe), and that both Zachary Quinto (who played Sylar) and Milo Ventimiglia (who played Peter Petrelli) are too busy to return. »

Comic-Con continues to find new ways to spread out from the San Diego Convention Center.
Having already flowed into the lawn outside and into area hotels, the airport is the next takeover target for Hollywood’s TV networks and studios turning to the fanfest each year to promote their newest projects.
TNT will plaster the San Diego Intl Airport’s baggage claim carousels, escalators and skyway bridges with images and other messaging for its upcoming series “Legends,” starring Sean Bean, Ali Larter, Morris Chestnut and Tina Majorino (see below). Show premieres Aug. 13.
From there, the marketing campaign will also appear around the city’s Gaslamp Quarter, including a giant billboard covering the side of the Marriott Hotel, next to the convention center.
Naturally, there’s also a social media component. The network is encouraging fans of actor Sean Bean to use the hashtag #DontKillSeanBean in social media postings about the show. »

Nominations for the Emmys were announced yesterday and that means it was time for Orphan Black fans to cry, “Why do we make jokes about the Golden Globes’ credibility when they at least had the good sense to notice Tatiana Maslany?” (Among many, many other snubs). The Hollywood Reporter‘s Tim Goodman argues that the Emmys should expand to include more nominees in each category to “reflect the magnitude of the industry.”
TVLine reports that while there’s no hope for the original How I Met Your Dad pilot, a series is still being developed and could see a new pilot being made with the original cast, a new cast or a mix.

As you may have heard, seen and read on the Internet, Sean Bean is prone to dying on the big and small screen. You know this, right? I don't need to run through the list of movies and TV shows in which Bean has died, because I don't want to spoil "The Smurfs" for you or something. [Note: That was a joke. Sean Bean probably doesn't die in "The Smurfs." I haven't seen it. I just didn't want to spoil something real.] TNT also knows it. On Thursday (July 10) morning at the Television Critics Association press tour, TNT presented a panel for the new undercover FBI agent drama "Legends." At each of our seats, we had a t-shirt with the hashtag #DontKillSeanBean emblazoned on the front. So it wasn't like it was bad form for Sean Bean to get the panel's first question and for it to be about his predilection toward on-screen death. In fact, he probably ought to have know it was coming eventually, if not immediately. Bean was uncomfortable when asked about the fascination. »
