SLEEPY HOLLOW Nabs a HOUSE OF CARDS Star for Season 2 Arc

May 27, 2014 by  

Another bit of SLEEPY HOLLOW casting news: a rep has confirmed that the series has cast HOUSE OF CARDS’ Sakina Jaffrey as Leena Reyes, a new sheriff who will be (hopefully temporarily) taking over for Captain Irving, since Irving ended last season in jail in an attempt to protect his family. The casting was first announced by E! News.

In March before the show’s PaleyFest panel, SLEEPY HOLLOW producer Heather Kadin teased that they were looking to cast a woman to “replace” Irving as he dealt with his legal issues.

“We love the idea of whoever has to fill Irving’s shoes to be woman,” Kadin said at the time. “We’ve talked a lot about that: what that dynamic would be to throw into the mix with Abbie, and how would Crane react to this authority figure as a female? You don’t see [a woman as the big boss] a lot, either.”

Are you excited to see how Abbie and Ichabod deal with Sheriff Reyes?
