Funny or Die: Sean Bean Must Die

Posted on August 11, 2014

Sean Bean fans get worried every time he's cast in a new role. Whether he's playing Boromir in Lord of the Rings or playing Ned Stark in Game of Thrones, he dies -- sometimes in a spectacular fashion.

Sean has a new show premiering on TNT this fall called Legends in which he plays an FBI special agent that goes really deep undercover. In fact, he goes so deep that he's not sure who he is anymore. So, is he programmed like in Dollhouse? We don't know yet. But one thing we do know is that we worry he's going to get killed.

In this promo for the new show, Sean and the showrunner are shooting a scene on the set. The showrunner explains it's a very short scene in which he searches a computer database and then gets a surprising email. Sean asks what happens next -- do tribesmen attack with blow darts? Do piranhas fall out of the ceiling to eat him alive? Does he drink deadly poison just before he starts typing? The frustrated director tries to explain that nothing happens next. He just gets a weird email that causes him to be surprised.

But that's just not how Sean rolls. Take a look:
