Everybody's favorite Fringe star joins Sleepy Hollow in major role

Just when you thought the cast of Sleepy Hollow couldn’t get more awesome.

According to Deadline, Fringe (and The Lord of The Rings) actor John Noble is set to star in a major recurring role on Fox’s new hit drama series Sleepy Hollow.

The actor is thus reuniting with Fox, as well as with Fringe co-creators Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci—who co-created and executive-produce Sleepy Hollow.

Noble will appear later in the season as Henry Parrish, who is described as “a kind and reclusive man who possesses supernatural powers that have the potential to help the series’ protagonist, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison).”

This exciting casting news comes hot on the heels of the casting of True Blood and Grimm star James Frain in upcoming multiple episodes. Perhaps this is when Noble's character will be of help to Ichabod against Frain's "modern-day nobleman" named Rutledge?

With John Cho (Star Trek) and fan favorite Clancy Brown (Highlander) having both appeared in last week's season premiere, we gotta say Sleepy Hollow's main cast—as well as its roster of guest stars—are looking rather impressive to us.

So are you looking forward to seeing John Noble hopefully keep his head in Sleepy Hollow?
