Bad news for Crane and Mills: Sleepy Hollow‘s newest horseman of the apocalypse is calling in reinforcements.
“War doesn’t work by himself, does he?” series co-creator Roberto Orci asked the crowd at the show’s PaleyFest panel Wednesday night. “There’s a lot of amazing footsoldiers coming.”
The Season 2 scoop didn’t stop there. Throughout the evening, cast members Nicole Beharie, Tom Mison, Lyndie Greenwood, Orlando Jones and John Cho — and executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Orci, Heather Kadin, Mark Goffman and Len Wiseman — talked all things supernatural and cast an eerie eye toward the future. Read on for the Sleepy subjects they covered.
SECRET WEAPON | If and when Abbie and Ichabod reunite, the fight against evil may not be as defeated as the season finale made it seem. After all, the EPs pointed out, the duo still has Headless’ noggin… and they may use it to concoct a “new creation that our team kind of controls” that (hopefully) will fight on their side.
KID TROUBLE | Katrina and Ichabod won’t have an easy time of figuring out how to handle the bent-on-destruction Henry (née Jeremy). “It’s their son,” Wiseman said simply. “Can you kill your own son?” On a similar note, Mison said when he found out that John Noble’s character was actually Ichabod’s progeny, “I felt like an idiot” for missing all of the clues.
MO’ CHO? | When asked if he’d return — despite Andy Brooks’ multiple demises — Cho replied, “If I can come back, let’s do it.”
GET IT, GIRL | Mison confessed that he’d never heard of ‘shipping before joining the show. “It’s a good thing, apparently,” he joked — causing Jones to interject, “You should Google ‘slash’ just for fun.'” Meanwhile, if you’re an Ichabbie enthusiast, Beharie understands your motivation. “Tom is a handsome guy,” she said, coaxing hoots from the audience. “I can imagine that people are watching like, ‘Hook up, already! Hook up!'”
HORSEMEN WISHLIST | There are two open spots left on the horseman roster, and an audience member asked the panel to dream-cast the roles. The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus, Luther‘s Idris Elba and film actors Tilda Swinton, Javier Bardem and Clint Eastwood all made the cut.
TEE’D OFF | In solidarity with his locked-up alter ego, Jones wore a T-shirt bearing his mug shot and the words, “Free Frank Irving.”
MISON MISCELLANY | Ichabod may get behind the wheel in the upcoming season — but portrayer Mison will have to earn his learner’s permit right along with him. (Mison doesn’t drive.) Also, when an audience member pointed out that Mison’s attire for the evening closely resembled the pants Ichabod so loathes, the actor quickly corrected him. “No,” Mison said, “Tom is not wearing skinny jeans.”Follow @kimroots
