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. His recently released independent film Dead Cat is now available on VimeoVOD.
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.
Sleepy Hollow is back tonight at 9/8c with an episode written by Heather Regnier and directed by Guillermo Navarro. Entitled "The Sisters Mills," FOX offers the following plot summary:
