Morris Chestnut (V, Nurse Jackie) is joining the cast of Legends, TNT’s forthcoming spy drama from Homeland EP Howard Gordon.

Set to premiere in 2014, Legends — based on the book by Robert Littell — centers on Martin Odum (Game of Thrones‘ Sean Bean), an undercover agent working for the FBI’s Deep Cover Operations (D.C.O.) division.

Chestnut will play the series-regular role of Antonio “Tony” Cimarro, Martin’s less-experienced colleague and rival. Ambitious and a workaholic, Tony thrives on putting his innate skills to use on high-priority and high-risk cases involving national security.

The cast also includes Heroes‘ Ali Larter as Crystal Quest, a fellow operative who has a history with Martin and is uneasy about his return to D.C.O.; The Client List‘s Rob Mayes as Troy Quinn, a former Special Ops agent with a single-minded mission-first mentality; Grey’s Anatomy’s Tina Majorino as Maggie Harris, the newest member of the DCO team; The Practice‘s Steve Harris as Nelson Gates, the director of the DCO Task Force; and Revenge‘s Amber Valletta as Sonya Odum, Martin’s ex-wife.
