Welcome to this website dedicated to the extraordinary British actor Tom Mison. Tom is known for his roles in Lost in Austen, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and Parade's End. Tom currently plays Ichabod Crane on the hit television series Sleepy Hollow.
Tonight is the fall finale of Sleepy Hollow, meaning it is the last episode until the show returns in February in its new Friday at 8/7c time slot. In other words, chances are really good that this will be an action packed hour of television that you won't want to miss. The episode, entitled NovusOrdoSeclorum, was written by Leigh Dana Jackson (@LDJackson) and directed by Russell Fine (@RLeeFine). Sleepy Hollow newcomer Peter Mensah (300, Spartacus), who plays The Hidden One, will be live tweeting along -- he is @PMensahOnline. Remember to use the hashtag #SleepyHollow in all of your tweets so it will trend, as well as a special one for tonight -- #SaveJenny. That last one does not bode well.
For those not spoiler averse, embedded below are a couple of clips from tonight's episode.
Crane is always honest, regardless of the situation. See the fall finale tonight at 9/8c on FOX.
Fox is shaking up its schedule yet again in hopes of salvaging the 2015-16 season. This fall they inexplicably moved Sleepy Hollow to Thursday nights against Scandal and The Blacklist, perhaps hoping die hard Sleepyheads would bring in good delayed viewing numbers - which they have pretty much done. However, with the winter hiatus approaching, Fox has announced their plans for yet another move.
Sleepy Hollow will have its fall finale next week on November 19th, then go on hiatus until February. The show will return February 5th in a new time slot - Fridays at 8/7c. Normally a move to Friday would not be a good thing, but genre shows in particular have had success. Cult favorite Fringe and Grimm, which is now in its 5th season, have done well on Fridays, so there is much reason to be hopeful that this could turn out to be a positive development.
We've been hearing (and wondering) about it for months, and now the day is finally here. The Sleepy Hollow/Bones Halloween Crossover event starts tonight at 8/7c on FOX. In advance of this whole crazy thing, quite a wide array of teases, clips and interviews have been released. Several were included in a story posted here yesterday, but still more have been released since. See below for a couple of interviews/articles and a slew of embedded videos. Spoilerphobes read and view at your own risk.
Tomorrow is the night Bones and Sleepy Hollow crossover, and while it may be the most unlikely of mashups, from what has been released so far the episodes look really entertaining. In Bones ("The Resurrection of the Remains" airing at 8/7c) Ichabod and Abbie visit Booth and Brennan at the Jeffersonian to claim the remains of a headless Redcoat. They team up to discover exactly who the corpse is, and how it fits in with a murder investigation in present day. In the Sleepy Hollow episode at 9/8c ("Dead Men Tell No Tales"), Ichabod and Abbie try to figure out what really is going on, and they all must try to save the town from Pandora's British Army of the Undead. Ah well - just another day at the office for our Witnesses.
One of the most exciting aspects of this whole crossover is the amount of press and promotion that's being generated in advance of tomorrow night's event. Check out the galleries for episodic and behind the scenes photos, and see below for all the video clips and interviews. You can find a great story in EW (either follow the link or find grabs of the digital edition in the galleries), in which Tom states what he really thought about the idea of combining the two shows. “What a stupid idea. I thought, ‘No way, different universes, it’ll never work.’ ” Luckily, he was proven wrong. Tom told TVLine “It actually worked really rather nicely, ’cause they’re quite similar, actually. I hadn’t really realized it until I started working with Emily, that Brennan and Ichabod are very similar,” he said, laughing. “Which is probably why they’re destined not to get along.”
A transcript of a conference call with both show's showrunners can be found on TV Tango. They talk about how the idea came about and how the two worlds and two teams melded. Check out the videos below for more interviews and learn the really interesting way they've found to connect the worlds through a mutual acquaintance of Booth and Abbie's.
UPDATE: A new Q&A with Tom and David Boreanaz was posted by USA Today. Mostly they both say how excited David was to work with Tom, but there are some other really great nuggets of information in there that make it a must read.
