The supernatural drama has cast… Alias spydaddy Victor Garber as Ichabod’s dad, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Details are sparse, but Garber will appear in at least one upcoming episode of the Fox series.
In the Nov. 25 episode, Ichabod spoke fondly of his father, reminiscing about spending time with him while the elder Crane was on holiday from teaching at Oxford.
Prior to the announcement, executive producer Ken Olin told TVLine that there often is a behind-the-scenes weighing of the pros and cons of choosing a known actor for a guest part.
“When we cast John Noble [as sin-eater Henry Parrish], that was definitely a discussion,” he said. “But then, finally, it was really on the merits of John Noble. He’s amazing. So that’s always the balance that we work with.”
Garber’s recent TV work includes Web Therapy and NBC’s short-lived Deception. He will play a judge on The Good Wife later this season.Follow @kimroots
