TVLine has learned that James Frain — one of TV’s go-to guys for playing off-putting, imperious individuals — will guest-star on multiple episodes of Fox’s freshman hit as Rutledge, a modern-day nobleman who will interrogate Ichabod, who is being passed off as a “visiting Oxford professor,” about his past.

What’s more, Rutledge harbors a secret that could affect Ichabod’s future.
