After a two-year stint as a regular on Showtime’s Nurse Jackie, Morris Chestnut is segueing to a regular role on another cable series, TNT‘s upcoming drama Legends, from producer Howard Gordon and Fox 21. The series stars Sean Bean as Martin Odum, an FBI Deep Cover Operations agent who has the uncanny ability to transform himself into a completely different person for each job. Chestnut will play Odum’s rival Antonio “Tony” Cimarro, a quick-witted FBI Deep Cover Operative and a natural-born talent for assuming “legends.” Chestnut, repped by Gersh and KLWGN,next will be seen in Universal’s November release The Best Man Holiday.
