Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow” continues to impress me week after week not only with its clever writing and fun direction but also with its at times brilliant casting. We were excited when “Fringe” alum John Noble joined the cast as the Sin Eater Henry Parrish and now TV Line is reporting that “Alias” spydaddy Victor Garber has signed on for the role of Ichabod’s (Tom Mison) father. Now that’s news worth flipping your wig over!
Details are sparse, but Garber will appear in at least one upcoming episode of the Fox series.
You may remember that in last week’s episode (‘Sanctuary’), Ichabod spoke fondly of his father, reminiscing about spending time with him while the elder Crane was on holiday from teaching at Oxford. It’ll be interesting to see Garber tackle the role in the flashbacks.
Fox is airing a rerun of "Sleepy Hollow" tonight, but the show returns next week with Episode 1x10, ‘The Golem.’
