Salmon Fishing in the Yemen star Tom Mison has joined the cast of Fox's upcoming "Sleepy Hollow" series. From Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Transformers, Star Trek), "Sleepy Hollow" will feature Mison in the leading role of Ichabod Crane and will follow his adventures as he travels from the past to present day Sleepy Hollow. There, he finds himself accused of murder.

Mison joins Orlando Jones (Evolution) as Lieutenant Frank Williams, a present-day police officer and and Katia Winter ("Dexter") as Crane's wife in the 18th century.

Based on the now-classic 1820 Washington Irving short story, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," the pilot episode will be directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist) (Len Wiseman was previously attached) and written by Kurtzman and Orci alongside Phillip Iscove.

"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" has been adapted for film and television as far back as 1922. It last hit the big screen with Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow in 1999 and the small screen with "The Hollow," an ABC Family telefilm that also brought the plot to present day.
