Those who have missed the sonorous voice and crinkly-eyed charm of Fringe’s John Noble in their Fox supernatural procedurals are in luck, as Deadline reports that Noble is joining the cast of Sleepy Hollow in a major recurring role. He’ll play “Henry Parrish, a kind and reclusive man who possesses supernatural powers that have the potential to help the series’ protagonist, Ichabod Crane” in his fight against ancient evil, such as the ability to talk sternly yet lovingly to it. It’s a reunion not only between Noble and the network but also with Fringe co-creators Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci—and if you want to pretend that “Henry Parrish” is just another alternate-universe version of Walter Bishop, well, no one’s going to stop you. This is America.
