‘Sleepy Hollow’ Adds John Noble in Major Recurring Role


‘Sleepy Hollow’ Adds John Noble in Major Recurring Role


‘Fringe’ fans will jump for joy when they hear this exciting news: John Noble is reuniting with FOX on the network’s new series ‘Sleepy Hollow,’ Deadline has just reported.

Noble, who is most memorable for his role as Walter Bishop on ‘Fringe,’ will star in a major recurring role. He will play Henry Parrish, “a kind and reclusive man who possesses supernatural powers that have the potential to help the series’ protagonist, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison).” Expect Noble to appear sometime later in the season.

Not only is Noble reuniting with FOX, but also with ‘Fringe’ co-creators Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci, who currently executive produce ‘Sleepy Hollow.’ Noble fans can also expect him to reprise his role as Matthew Ashbaugh on this season of the CBS drama ‘The Good Wife.’

This isn’t the only exciting news for the freshman FOX series. This week it was announced that ‘True Blood’ alum James Frain would also be joining the show as Rutledge, who will not only interrogate Ichabod about his past, but will seriously impact Ichabod’s life and future.

‘Sleepy Hollow’ premiered last week with strong numbers: 10.1 million viewers. This marks FOX’s biggest opening for a fall drama in seven years!

I can only imagine how well the show will do once Noble and Frain both appear. ‘Sleepy Hollow’ airs Mondays at 9/8c.

Hopefully this will spice up the show. While I like the shows concept its got some catching up to do since it's coming in behind Supernatural, Grimm, Haven, Once Upon a Time, and others that have been around for awhile. Hopefully they'll also keep Clancy Brown on as a regular. He's a good character actor and adds some character balance to the show. Also, since he's tracking what's been going on for awhile he can provide the occasional insight and back story when Abbie gets stuck. I'll keep watching, only because I like the genre (heck, I even watch Lost Girl).

Wasn't particularly impressed with the first episode, but the cast definitely keeps getting better and better.

James Frain and now John Noble. Awesome additions indeed! Especially Noble of course, but together, that's just an oh so perfect match! :)
