We’re counting the days until “Sleepy Hollow” returns to Fox in the fall, and to help fill the time, we have news on two new characters who are joining the show during its sophomore season. Read on to learn whom Matt Barr and Sakina Jaffrey will be portraying.
First, per TVLine, Matt Barr (pictured right; “Hellcats,” “One Tree Hill,” “Friday Night Lights,” “Harper’s Island”) has been cast as Nick Hawley, a “ruggedly handsome” bounty hunter who’ll assist Ichabod (Tom Mison) and Abbie (Nicole Beharie).
The “adventurous” Mr. Hawley is described as having a sense of humor and a bit of swagger, but he’s also a loner whose education is masked by a rough-and-tumble demeanor.
Next, E! Online reports that “House of Cards” star Sakina Jaffrey (pictured left) will take on the recurring guest gig of Leena Reyes, Sleepy Hollow’s new sheriff, who is smart, forceful, highly trained, and commanding. But Leena also has a warm and maternal side.
After working for the U.S. Border Patrol in Texas, Leena is returning to Sleepy Hollow to fill the recently vacated Sheriff’s position (you may recall that Orlando Jones’ Sheriff Irving ended up behind bars as Season 1 concluded).
The “Sleepy Hollow” producers are currently preparing for a total of 18 episodes in Season 2, which will have a war theme.
