Sleepy Hollow Adds a Miraculous Cast Member

Victor Garber Godspell

So there’s no Sleepy Hollow this week, but in lieu of a recap, we’ll bring you some news: Victor Garber has been cast as Ichabod’s dad! Victor Garber, who previously not only played Jack Bristow on Alias, but also portrayed a literally tapdancing Jesus in Godspell.

Not such amazing news, you say? No significance, beyond the fact that he’s a fine actor, and will be a great asset to the show? We beg to differ! This is Sleepy Hollow we’re talking about, so there must be more to this picture...

Using the Hollywood Property of Transitivity, we can now state with some authority what this means: Ichabod Crane—Witness to the Apocalypse, Chosen One, Seer of Demons—is Jesus’ son.

Also? Sydney Bristow’s much-older brother.

Imperfect Crimes

Having something stolen from you is a pretty crappy experience.

It’s an impersonal betrayal, but it’s still a slap from the universe.

And yet, when it comes fiction, we love a good thief.

Three Reasons AKA Jessica Jones Makes Me Worried

Variety reported on Friday that Marvel will be bringing Alias by Brian Michael Bendis into the television realm under the title AKA Jessica Jones.

If they had stopped there, I would have no reservations. Alias is tailor-made for television. It centers around Jessica Jones, a private investigator who briefly flirted with a career as a superhero. Her origin story as both a superhero and a self-loathing gumshoe are very well realized, and the vibe of it melds with the bright, shiny world of superheroes in a variety of amusing and realistic ways. Episodes could tackle superpowered done-in-one cases while dealing with Jessica’s backstory. When written by Bendis, Jessica Jones tended to be so entertaining that you didn’t care what she was up to, you just wanted to follow her around. Alias had an engaging main character, a great supporting cast, a powerful premise, and flexible story format.

It’s hard to mess that up, but the following three elements make me skeptical.
