Interview: one minute with 'Sleepy Hollow' actor Orlando Jones

See also

Orlando Jones of "Sleepy Hollow" joined his fellow cast mates and the executive team at the 2014 PaleyFest this week. The audience got to get a look back at the season finale followed by a panel discussion of the show's success and finally ending with an audience Q & A.

As viewers might remember, Jones' character, Captain Frank Irving, was last seen as a murder suspect. What will happen to the character next season, is too early to say. The series, which also stars Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, Lyndie Greenwood, John Cho and John Noble, will begin airing season two episodes this fall.

Jones, in his own colorful way, talked to Classic TV Examiner and other reporters before the panel for some insight to his character.

Below is the brief one minute interview with Jones. (Note: It was literally one minute long).

Q: What other character would I like to play on the show?

Orlando Jones: Moloch. That would be kind of fun. I'd have the horns and the creepy walk. I would like that, that be fun to do.

Q: Is your [Free Frank Irving] T-Shirt a preview of your plot arc for season two?

Orlando Jones: My T-Shirt is me trying to advocate to the Sleepy Heads that we should break Frank Irving out of prison. If it needs to happen and since he's a fictional character, I don't mind to break this particular fake Black dude out of prison.

Q: [Captain] Irving kind of bad ass. How did you prepare for the role?

Orlando Jones: I am actually a deputy sheriff. I've been down that road before. I became a licensed deputy sheriff when I was doing a movie with Michael Douglas. I think being tactile with guns and such is important for that type of role. I think mostly when you are carrying that type of power to take somebody's life on your arm, then that needs to be something that's going to resonate. That's the most fun part about the character I think.

Catch all new episodes of "Sleepy Hollow" this fall on FOX.
