A to Zim: 'Sleepy Hollow' Star Orlando Jones Answers Our 26 Burning Questions
Captain Frank Irving proves why he's the king of the Internet.
Orlando Jones is many things: Actor, writer, comedian, beloved Internet hero, and Black Lightning-wannabe. He's also Captain Frank Irving, the family-man-turned-the Horseman of War's minion on Fox's Sleepy Hollow‚ which recently aired its action-packed Season 2 finale. Next up: Jones will return to the big screen to star alongside Jessica Biel, Jason Sudeikis, and Maisie Williams in the indie drama The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.
Jones made time in all of that awesomeness to answer 26 of our burning questions, like who he'd want to be stranded on a desert island with, which MADtv character he'd like to resurrect one day, and the best thing about Sleepy Hollow fans (lovingly
known as "Sleepyheads").
Action hero you'd like to be:
Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) from Kick Ass.
Bad movie you secretly love and why:
Howard the Duck because it was mocked in its day, but it was a Marvel movie before Marvel movies were a thing and he's now cool again.
Creature from Sleepy Hollow you wouldn't mind getting to know a little better:
Ancitif so I could learn how to go around and possess people.
Describe yourself in one sentence:
I am not the little boy from Everybody Hates Chris, Solange Knowles, Orlando Bloom, the black Jeff Goldblum, Isaiah Washington or most Mos Def.
Embarrassing story you're finally ready to reveal to the world:
When my mom first recommended that I go see Star Wars Ep IV, I told her it sounded like the stupidest movie ever and she should keep her day job because movie critic was clearly not her calling.
Favorite fan moment:
Fangirling with the fandoms of other shows over our shared love of a ship.

Revelations you've had about the Sleepy Hollow cast:
Tom Mison raps better than Eminem. Lyndie Greenwood could be an MMA Fighter. Nicole Beharie forbids us from making eye contact with her (she's method like that but mostly because her beauty will burn off your face Raiders of the Lost Ark
style). John Noble has very soft lips. Katia Winter rivals George Clooney as a prankster.
Sleepyhead moment you're most proud of:
The passion behind the #RenewSleepyHollow social media campaign.
Tom Mison: Hotter in costume or in real life? (It's an ongoing Zimbio debate.)
Hotter in real life, but cosplaying as Steve Zissou from The Life Aquatic.
Upcoming project(s) you'd like to shamelessly plug:
My new reality show Orlando Jones Discovers The Americas.
Two features I am producing and starring in — Tainted Love, based on my award- winning graphic novel action comedy and Black Lightning, based on the true story of Ted Patrick, the father of cult deprogramming.

Anything from Zach King the Vine Magician. Also, Nicolas Megalis' "Gummy Money."
