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.
