"Fringe" star John Noble will appear in a recurring guest-starring role on the Fox drama "Sleepy Hollow." Noble will appear later in the season as Henry Parrish, a kind and reclusive man who possesses supernatural powers that have the potential to help the series' protagonist, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison).
The role marks a return to Fox for Noble, as well as a creative reunion with "Sleepy Hollow" executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Heather Kadin, all of whom collaborated with the actor on "Fringe."
On the next episode of "Sleepy Hollow," airing Monday, Sept. 23 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on Fox, Ichabod Crane (Mison) and Lt. Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) move forward in their mission to unravel the mysteries lurking in Sleepy Hollow. A frightful vision from Ichabod's former wife, Katrina (Katia Winter), sends the unlikely duo on the hunt for a vengeful witch from the 1700s, who has been awoken by unknown evils and is on a path of destruction in the quaint town.
"Sleepy Hollow" premiered on Monday, Sept. 16 to an impressive 10.1 million viewers, making it Fox's most-watched fall drama premiere in seven years.
