One Day star Tom Mison has been cast as Ichabod Crane in Alex Kurtzman, Robert Orci and Phillip Iscove’s Sleepy Hollow pilot, directed by Len Wiseman.

Deadline reported that the British actor had been chosen to lead the show, and gave us a better idea of what to expect.

“A modern–day supernatural thriller based on The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow, the project, from 20th TV and K/O, follows Ichabod Crane (Mison) as he partners with Sleepy Hollow’s Detective Abbie Archer (Nicole Beharie) to solve the mysteries of a town ravaged by the battle between good and evil. A captain from the Revolutionary War where he takes off a horseman’s head, Ichabod gets time warped into present day where he is confused by the modern technology but turns out to be a great detective once his enemy, The Headless Horseman, comes back to haunt the town.”
