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 BielJason 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").
