True Blood’s James Frain to Star in Sleep Hollow

September 26, 2013 by  

James Frain is the ‘Go-To Guy for Playing Off-Putting, Imperious Individuals’:

James Frain as Franklin Mott True BloodFans of HBO’s True Blood all seemed to love the warped relationship between crazy vampire Franklin Mott (James Frain) and Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley). Many were saddened when he met an early demise, hoping, instead, he would live on like he did in the Southern Vampire Mystery series of books by Charlaine Harris.

Well, James Frain is back – just not on True Blood though! TV Line recently  confirmed that James had signed on to play a recurring role in Fox’s new series, Sleep Hollow. Michael Ausiello had the following to say about Frain’s Sleepy Hollow character, Rutledge:

[he is] a modern-day nobleman who will interrogate Ichabod, who is being passed off as a “visiting Oxford professor,” about his past.

Ausiello also hints at a ‘secret which could affect Icabod’s future’. Hmm, sounds intriguing! Frain always seems to play characters that are odd, off-putting and at a loggerheads with authority, so it will be fantastic to see how the role of Rutledge will evolve in Frain’s capable hands.

It has not been confirmed exactly when James Frain will appear on Sleepy Hollow, but you can tune in on Monday nights at 9/8c to catch this new TV series.
