The Mummy star Brendan Fraser has quit U.S. Tv drama Legends due to creative differences with creator Howard Gordon.

Fraser had signed on to play an undercover spy with a skill for disguise in the series, adapted from Robert Littell's book of the same name.

It was set to be his first leading Tv role.

Gordon, the man behind drama hit Homeland, will recast his leading man, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
