*After a two-year run as a regular on Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie,” Morris Chestnut has been cast as a regular on another cable series, TNT‘s upcoming drama “Legends,” reports Deadline.com.

The series, from producer Howard Gordon and Fox 21, 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 will next be seen in Universal’s November release “The Best Man Holiday.”
