Former “Game of Thrones” star Sean Bean has been cast as the new lead in TNT’s pilot for “Legends,” a new series based on Robert Littell’s novel of the same name, according to Deadline.

Bean replaces actor Brendan Frasier, who was originally attached to star but left the project in October.

In the pilot, Bean will play Martin Odum, a spy who is adept at undercover missions because of his ability to transform himself into a different person depending on the job.

The pilot is being produced by Howard Gordon, who’s becoming the master of the TV spy game, as the EP of series like “24” and Showtime’s Emmy-winning CIA hit “Homeland.”

Since the unforgettable premature demise of his “GOT” hero Ned Stark on the prestigious HBO series, Bean co-starred on last season’s forgettable Ashley Judd ABC series, “Missing.”
