Not to be confused with the current t.v. show on Fox (which I love!), Tim Burton’s “Sleepy Hollow” (1999) starred not one, not two, but THREE PT alumni: Ian McDiarmid, Christopher Lee, and Ray Park as the Headless Horseman during his supercool fight scenes. Come to think of it, that’s not only three PT alumni, that’s three Sith Lords in one film! How appropriate for a horror movie released in time for Halloween.
Johnny Depp played Ichabod Crane, probably the first to transform the dorky Crane of Washington Irving’s tale into a dashing hero, although a bit more eccentric than hunky Tom Mison’s Crane on the t.v. show. Christina Ricci played Katrina and the rest of the cast included Christopher Walken, and Casper Van Diem.
Here’s McDiarmid in costume:
And Christopher Lee:
And finally, Ray Park in action:
