    This brother has been busy. I have also seen him in a few commercials, but to me he will always be " Junior" in Devil in a Blue Dress.

    Don't get too excited. I love the show however, the white viewers are starting to complain that it'g getting too black for them. They have commented that the show is more about Lt. Abby Mills vs Inchabod Crane. They want to see more of the story catering to him and the other residents of Sleepy Hollow. They also want to see more of his purgartory wife Katrina. I personally love the direction of the show but unfortunately you have to balance it out with what the "other folks" think in order for the ratings to stay up. I watch the show because of the cast and the story telling. I don't know much about the original story of Sleepy Hollow and the four horsemen to say whether the TV show is staying true or straying away from the the original. Ill just keep my fingers crossed that it gets renewed.

    where are they complaining?

    I agree. Must tread lightly. I LOVE the show and find it has great storytelling talent. To be honest my first thought on reading the headline was "Uhoh. Hope it don't get TOO "Black" ". Fanboys'll start revolting. The pot is starting to simmer based on your post. Glad it was greenlit for a 2nd season.

    Damn, what talented Black actors aren't they trying to get on this show? I really need to have a marathon this weekend.

    Dang, Sleepy Hollow has a lot of minorities in high positions. I love this show, everything about it. And YES BET needs to air this show. This is what happens when you have a diverse writing staff. FYI most of the writers are women of color.

    are they really?!!! That's dope.

    BET should pick this up for syndication given the amount of black talent coming to this show. I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't negotiating that already.

    You should mention that he also played a judge overseeing Carrie's commitment hearing in the pivotal episode "Homeland" this season.
