Fraser dropped out of the pilot last month; the show would have marked his first starring turn on a TV series.

Bean will play Martin Odum, a deep-cover operative who has a chameleon-like ability to transform himself into a different person for each mission. The project is based on a book by spy novelist Robert Littell.

"Homeland" duo Howard Gordon and Alexander Cary are executive-producing the pilot, which comes from Fox 21, as are Jeffrey Nachmanoff ("The Day After Tomorrow") and Jonathan Levin ("Charmed").

Deadline first reported news of Bean's "Legends" casting.
