Morris Chestnut on ‘Legends’, His Character and Filming in LA (video)

Morris Chestnut was at Comic-Con promoting the upcoming TNT show, Legends.

The show stars Sean Bean as Martin Odum, a deep-cover operative who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. But his true identity comes into question when a stranger suggests that Odum isn’t who he thinks he is. Chestnut plays Tony Rice, “a guy that beats to his own drum,” he said. The show also stars Ali Larter and Tina Marjorino.

Some highlights:

  • He talks about his character and what he likes about playing him
  • How he got the part
  • How he loves shooting the show in Los Angeles

Legends premieres on August 13th at 9/8c on TNT
