Tradecraft: Sean Bean is Missing

Deadline reports that 006 himself, Sean Bean, has joined the cast of ABC's forthcoming Takenesque spy series Missing.  Unfortunately, he's not playing one of the meatier male roles in the pilot script.  (The best male part in that is an Italian Interpol agent, and I'm really curious to see who gets cast in that part!)  Instead he's playing the husband of star Ashley Judd's character, a character who dies in the show's opening minutes—but apparently (according to the trade blog) "will appear throughout the series in flashbacks."  Bean, who not only menaced James Bond, but also Jack Ryan, can be seen in a few weeks starring in HBO's fantasy series Game of Thrones.  His next spy role will be in Age of Heroes, a fact-based adventure about James Bond creator Ian Fleming's secret WWII commando unit 30AU that's due out on DVD in Britain this June. As previously reported, James D'Arcy plays Fleming in that.
