Jones and Winter head to Sleepy Hollow

February 27th, 2013 by Marc Comments

This is one of these projects that sounds good on paper – erm, monitors – but we fear that, in reality, it may be lacking…

Evolution star Olrando Jones (left) and Dexter’s Katia Winter (below) have joined the cast of the MadTV’s modern-day spin on the legend of Sleepy Hollow.

Evolution is one of my favourite movies – I make no apologies – and in this he’ll play  Lt. Frank Williams, a detective sent to Sleepy Hollow tosolve a series of mysterious murders. Katia Winter, who made her TV debut in the last season of Dexter will play Ichabod rane’s wife and a nurse in the town.

The official synopsis for the show reads: Ichabod is described as a captain in the Revolutionary War who has been to hell and back. The former history professor finds himself catapulted to present day Sleepy Hollow, where he’s indicted for the murder of a police officer and forced to prove not only his innocence but make a wary detective believe he’s a traveler from the 18th century.

But before you shrug your shoulders in a ‘meh’ fashion, check out the talent behind the cameras – Fringe writers Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci are writing the pilot and Len Wiseman will direct… we’re curiously optimistic now…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
