Now we don’t know about you guys, but when it comes to possible actors being cast for a new TV show based on the classic Washington Irving tale featuring the headless horseman, the first name that immediately springs to mind is Orlando Jones. Right?
Deadline is reporting that Jones (pictured; numerous irritating roles) and Katia Winter (“Dexter”) have been cast in “Sleepy Hollow,” Fox’s drama pilot. Jones will play Lt. Frank Williams, the serious and sternly professional detective transferred to Sleepy Hollow to investigate a double homicide. Swedish actress Winter will play Katrina, Crane’s wife and a nurse with the 37th Regiment in the Revolutionary War.
The series was created by Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci (writers of “Fringe,” Transformers, and Star Trek) with Underworld director Len Wiseman on board to direct.
In the script, Ichabod Crane is described as a captain in the Revolutionary War who has been to hell and back. The former history professor finds himself catapulted to present day Sleepy Hollow, where he’s indicted for the murder of a police officer and forced to prove not only his innocence but make a wary detective believe he’s a traveler from the 18th century.
