'Sleepy Hollow' Casts Abbie's New Boss (Exclusive)
Fox's Sleepy Hollow reinvention continues.
The network has tapped Crisis alum Lance Gross for a major recurring role in its upcoming third season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Gross will play Daniel Reynolds, the FBI special agent in charge — aka Abbie's (Nicole Beharie) new boss.
Gross becomes the latest addition to the rebooted Fox drama and joins new series regulars Nikki Reed — as Betsy Ross — and Shannyn Sossamon (as mystery woman Pandora). The series, which moved from North Carolina to Atlanta, is undergoing a creative reboot under new showrunner Clifton Campbell (The Glades).
For Gross, the role comes after a brief arc on ABC's Grey's Anatomy and NBC drama pilot Warrior. He's repped by WME, MGMT Entertainment and Neil Meyer.
Sleepy Hollow returns Thursday, Oct. 1 on Fox.
