  13. Sarah says:

    Today has been a good day of me making noises akin to what a pterodactyl would make.

  14. EWJ says:

    To day I saw the line “[…random actors name…] makes everything better just like bacon” and an announcement that John Noble is joining a new show and I’m really disappointed that these two things weren’t in the same article. JN is awesome and will be awesome on Sleepy Hallow, which had a pretty decent start.

  15. Eric says:

    I didn’t think I would like this show. Then I watched the pilot, and loved it. Now John Noble is on board? This could become one of my favorite new dramas of the season at the rate it’s going!

  16. Tanya says:

    Ok, I wasn’t planning on watching this show, even after all the raves… but now CAN.NOT.RESIST!!!

  17. John says:

    Terrific news, he’s a wonderful actor

  18. AT says:

    Yes yes yes!

  19. Andy says:

    Omg. This is so awesome. Sleepy Hollow is on its way to being my top new show.

  20. Drew says:

    Finally, I can watch a show with one of the Fringe stars on it! I was starting to think I’d never be able to watch any of them again.

  21. madbengalsfan85 says:

    This has me very excited

  22. R.O.B. says:

    SUCH awesome news. I was impressed with the pilot (although my wife made an interesting comment – how it was sad nowadays that pilots have to give so much of the mystery away or risk losing the audience). We are already sold, and now this – John Noble. So cool.

  23. Joey says:

    Glad John is getting more work. I’ll watch the episodes he’s in.

  27. Utbabys says:

    Not a single negative comment about John. Pity.

  28. I was impressed with the pilot It reminded me of books written by Dan Brown. I was already sold, and now this – John Noble. So cool.

  29. Zepp OnAir says:

    I was sure that Walter would land somewhere uncertain and not known … In a universe unimaginable. The surprise for me, when he will appear in Sleepy Hollow! WOW! All success to you Mr John Noble!

  30. Farley Ong says:

    My jaw literally dropped when this news popped up on my screen. Now Sleepy Hollow is a must watch for me! I’m totally in 100 percent!

  31. Looking forward to his appearing. Now Sony needs to cast him as J Jonah Jameson in the Spiderman films!

  32. Ofelia12 says:

    Of all the actors from Fringe they can choose, why john noble? It’s also quite sad that all Josh got was hate when he got the role on The Affair but John gets love and respect. Freaking bull.
