Orlando Jones talks ‘Sleepy Hollow’ season 2, going to get ‘completely awesome’

While season 2 of Sleepy Hollow has rolled on , Orlando Jones’ police captain role has been moved to the back burner. Jones tells UPI that there’s plenty of excitement to come
“He’s in a tough way,” Jones recently admitted to UPI, quoted in a new Nov. 16 article. “Obviously, one of the big things for the show is family and he is separated from his family, having made the ultimate sacrifice for his family,” Jones explained.

So, to have a fellow officer thinking of him in that particular way, but, also, I think his real dilemma is that his daughter believes that he killed people. It’s something I think he takes… that is eating away at him in a certain way and he’s powerless to do something about it. What I can promise you is you have no idea what is about to happen next. It’s a crazy season.”
Fox’s contemporary version of Washington Irving’s 18th century-set tale The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, has seen the good natured character institutionalized and selling out his soul to the devil. That said, Jones says the wild ride is still ahead, “Where it’s going is completely awesome.

“Look, the conclusion is no fun if you don’t enjoy the journey. I love the fact that he is in the position he is in right now, to be honest with you, because I think it is an interesting journey for him. It’s not what you would have expected when the season started. He could have easily been an angry police captain in the pilot and, obviously, [executive producer] Len [Wiseman] didn’t do that and the journey he’s taken is not the journey of any police captain you’ve seen on TV before, so I’m excited about that,” he says to UPI.

Jones talks about the themes of redemption for the Horseman, “…he is just a son who has an estranged relationship with his parents that has caused him to make some really evil choices…So, for me, the question is: ‘Will [Henry] find redemption? Will he find a way to reconcile his life and the mistakes that were made with his family?’ And because he owns my soul, I really want him to figure this out.”

Jones went on to say signing up to co-star in the series is “probably the best decision I’ve ever made.”

“The pilot is still my favorite episode by far,” he emphasized.
