LEGENDS (TNT) - Ali Larter ("Heroes") has booked the female lead on the drama pilot, about a deep-cover operative named Martin Odum (Sean Bean), who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. She'll play Crystal, "an operative with D.C.O. who has a history with Martin and initially objects to his return to the task force." Amber Valletta, Lux Haney Jardine, Rob Mayes, Steve Harris and Tina Majorino also star in the Fox 21-based hour, which is based on a book by master spy novelist Robert Littell. David Semel directs.

AND IN OTHER NEWS... - ABC is reportedly eyeing Lucasfilm's long-in-the-works live-action television series set in the "Star Wars" universe (and between the original film trilogy and the prequels), which centers on "rival families struggling over the control of the seedy underside of the Star Wars universe and the people who live within the subterranean level and air shafts of the metropolis planet Coruscant" (EW.com); Niecy Nash will guest on "Ben & Kate" as "the soon-to-be-ex-wife of Rob Corddry's bar owner Buddy" (TVLine.com); Meredith Vieira is departing the syndicated incarnation of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" after 11 years (Deadline.com); and Mike Tyson will make his TV acting debut on "Law & Order: SVU" as "a murderer on death row whose violent actions may in part be the byproduct of a horrible childhood," an episode also featuring Ed Asner (Deadline.com).
