'Sleepy Hollow' Casts Ichabod's Old Flame, 'Daredevil' Finds Matt Murdock's Best Friend
Another person from Ichabod Crane's past is coming to "Sleepy Hollow" in season 2. Heather Lind, who plays spy Anna Strong on AMC's "Turn", will guest star as Mary Wells, who is Ichabod's old flame from England.
According to TVLine, Mary seems "pleasant and sweet" at first, but she "has a darker side - and will prove to be flighty, moody and prone to fits of extreme jealousy." The character will debut in the fifth episode of season 2, which will premiere Monday, September 22 at 9/8c on FOX, and the actress will film her scene before she begins the filming of "Turn" second season.
In other casting news, Netflix's "Daredevil" has added another actor to its cast line-up. Elden Henson, known for playing Fulton Reed in the "Mighty Ducks" trilogy, is tapped to portray Foggy Nelson, Matt Murdock's best friend and legal partner.
"Elden plays one of the most important characters in the world of Marvel's Daredevil, and we're thrilled to see Foggy Nelson brought to life by such an incredibly talented actor," says Jeph Loeb, head of television at Marvel. "He perfectly captures the heart and soul of this series, bringing an added resonance to Matt Murdock's fight against the injustice in their great city."
Henson, who will be seen in "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1" and the second part as Pollux, joins Charlie Cox who is cast as the titular role a.k.a. the blind lawyer Murdock, Vincent D'Onofrio as villainous Wilson Fisk a.k.a. The Kingpin, and Rosario Dawson as a woman who forever alters the course of Murdock's battle against injustice.
Jon Favreau played the character Foggy Nelson in "Daredevil, The Movie" starring Ben Affleck.
