Canada.com: "Tom Mison says jaw dropped when told of this season's 'Sleepy Hollow' finale"

Interview with Tom, posted on September 18, 2014:

"That's why I loved it when I first read the pilot," Milson told critics. "It's crazy and it's not like anything I had read before."

There was no fear this show could ever jump the shark, he added, "because in the pilot we kicked the shark in the teeth."

Milson himself has jumped into a strange new world in his leap across the pond from London to Wilmington. "I'm still refusing to say, 'Y'all," he says of his Carolina experience. He likes the slower pace of life and especially swimming at the beach, admitting "that's something I don't usually do at six in the morning in England."

When an American reporter suggests he was enjoying better food he quickly corrects that impression to be "more food. "I'm living off pulled pork and bourbon and sweet potato fries. That's my Americanization."

He feels the series does have a lot of "English humour" in it, especially in the dialogue. "It would be very easy for a show about people battling for the side of good against evil ... to become earnest," he says. "So it's nice to avoid that by having a grown man confused by a pen."

Look for Crane to get even more confounded as the series goes on. Mison says he talks regularly with executive producer Mark Goffman about where the series is heading. When he was told about the cliff-hanger the producers have in store for this season, Milson says, "my jaw hit the ground even harder than when he told me the finale last season."

The shocking two-part Season 1 finale ("The Indispensable Man"/"Bad Blood") will be re-airing tonight on FOX. Hopefully. Check your local listings to see what time (mine says 8-10pm/7-9c, but TV Guide lists it as 7-9pm/6-8c) and whether it's being pre-empted by football. Or something else entirely. Fingers crossed we all get it and can relive those final, fateful 10 minutes when we all screamed at our TV's in unison 8 long months ago.

And, needless to say, don't forget that the Season 2 premiere is on Monday at 9pm/8c!

In it, they show us how the costumes for some season 2 bad guys (and girl), have been conceptualized by the show's very talented Costume Designer, Kristin Burke (@Frocktalk). As Tom told TV Guide, "Sleepy Owes much to Kristin. Her knowledge of the period is remarkable, and she has a sense of fun."
