Tom Mison fans get ready for some wonderful news. The ‘Salmon Fishing in The Yemen‘ actor has been set as the lead in the new Fox drama, ‘Sleepy Hollow‘. This Len Wiseman directed drama takes the classic story we all know and gives it a modern day twist. Ichabod Crane (Mison), partners with Sleepy Hollow’s detective Abbie Archer (Nicole Beharie) to save the day by battling the forces of evil.
In a twist, Icabod and the Horseman are thrown into present day with all the confusions of modern technology. Orlando Jones and Katia Winter will co-star in the pilot of this new drama.This looks to be interesting to say the least. I believe that it hangs in a delicate balance between being very good or very bad. Alex Kurtzman’s writing should prove to give lots of people some topics to discuss around the water cooler.
Wiseman is know mostly for directing the ‘Underworld‘ films as well as the recent ‘Total Recall‘ film. He is also married to Kate Beckinsale, so who knows, she might show up in ‘Sleepy Hollow‘. Plus, it will be great to see Orlando Jones come back to the limelight. Miss that guy.
