More TV pilot news has come in today with word that Fox has found its Ichabod Crane for the Len Wiseman-directed pilot “Sleepy Hollow.”
Per Deadline, British actor Tom Mison (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, One Day) has landed the lead in “Sleepy Hollow,” Fox’s drama pilot written by Alex Kurtzman, Bob Orci, and Phillip Iscove and directed by Len Wiseman.
A modern–day supernatural thriller based on The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, the project, from 20th TV and K/O, follows Ichabod Crane (Mison) 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 in the Revolutionary War, where he takes off a horseman’s head, Ichabod gets time warped into the present day, where he is confused by modern technology but turns out to be a great detective once his enemy, The Headless Horseman, comes back to haunt the town. Orlando Jones and Katia Winter co-star in the pilot executive produced by Kurtzman, Orci, Wiseman, and Heather Kadin.
If you want to check out Mison’s acting chops, he appears in HBO’s five-part miniseries “Parade’s End,” which premieres tonight.
