The accolades continue to roll in for Tom and the show, as more end-of-year lists are posted:

MTV: The Most Criminally Underrated Hotties of 2013

Tom Mison This is almost certainly Tom Mison's last year to be counted as "underrated", now that the entire world is lusting after him in the role of the befuddled, time-traveling Ichabod Crane on Fox's "Sleepy Hollow." But since he spent most of 2013 in relative obscurity, we'll put him on this list if only to relish the fact that he's leaving it so soon. So long, Tom, and thanks for all the "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen."

Tom Mison, Sleepy Hollow
Sleepy Hollow should be an unbearable cheese-fest, but thanks in large part to Mison, it's become a breakout hit. The actor's ability to insert an earnestness into Ichabod's fish-out-of-water routine elevates it far beyond the grating shtick it could have become. (One only has to look at Crane's impassioned speech to the NorthStar worker Yolanda to understand just how skilled Mison is at this.) His attention to detail is also to be admired. It was Mison who suggestion that Crane refer to Lt. Abbie Mills as "leftenant," which has quickly become one of the soldier's most endearing quirks.

Lots to Cheer About in 2013's Year End Lists

Several year-end lists were published yesterday, and it's no surprise that Sleepy Hollow and Tom were mentioned in quite a few:

 
TV Guide: Cheers & Jeers - 2013's Best & Worst in TV (see photo*)
 
Cheers to Sleepy Hollow's Tom Mison for bringing a dash of witty panache to a literary legend.  He transforms Ichabod Crane into a strapping Revolutionary War spy doing battle with infamous (sometimes headless) demons. Crane's rants against modern customs are an endless delight.

Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow)
We were admittedly skeptical about this show when we saw the pilot, thinking it might be goofy fun, but otherwise kept our expectations low. But the talented Tom Mison and his gentle, mannered accent have made us full on Sleepy addicts. From his adoring flashbacks with his wife to his confusion about modern conveniences (plus his charming habit of calling Abbie "Leftenant") have put us totally under his spell.

10. Sleepy Hollow
A thrilling mystery-adventure drama series spanning two and a half centuries, in which a resurrected Ichabod Crane pairs up with a present-day cop to save the enigmatic town of Sleepy Hollow – and the world – from unprecedented evil.

Tom MisonIchabod Crane, Sleepy Hollow
While the Ichabod of Irving's famous tale was a gawky, unattractive fellow, FOX chose to have a handsome and dashing war hero battle the headless horseman in this reimagining of the original short story. Loyal and brave, Ichabod has had some setbacks while trying to adjust to living in contemporary society. However, he handles the sometimes ridiculous nature of living in the 21rst century with a keen, dry wit, expertly delivered by Mison.
