Salmon Fishing In The Yemen actor Tom Mison has landed the lead role of Ichabod Crane in the new FOX series Sleepy Hollow. The pilot for the fun sounding series is being directed by Total Recall's Len Wiseman, and was written by Alex Kurtzman, Bob Orci, and Phillip Iscove.
The series is a modern–day supernatural thriller based on The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow, and it follows "Ichabod Crane as he partners with Sleepy Hollow’s Detective Abbie Archer (Nicole Beharie) to solve the mysteries of a town ravaged by the battle between good and evil. A captain from the Revolutionary War where he takes off a horseman’s head, Ichabod gets time warped into present day where he is confused by the modern technology but turns out to be a great detective once his enemy, The Headless Horseman, comes back to haunt the town."
The series also stars Orlando Jones and Katia Winter. This really could end up being a great show, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
