'Sleepy Hollow's' Tom Mison: 'Ichabod Crane is the hardest part I've played'

"Ichabod is the hardest part I've played," Tom Mison, star of the freshman fantasy-drama "Sleepy Hollow," airing Mondays on Fox, tells Zap2it. "There's so much that we need to balance with him. To slightly veer in any one direction a little too much, and it will collapse."

"Sleepy Hollow" can be described as a combination of author Washington Irving (in particular, his stories "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle"), the film "National Treasure" and the biblical book of Revelation.

Mison's Ichabod Crane was a spy for Gen. George Washington during the Revolutionary War, when he beheaded the Hessian Horseman and apparently perished. But, he survived and slumbered underground for over two centuries, only to emerge in present-day Sleepy Hollow, N.Y.

Stalked by the now-Headless Horseman and facing a variety of deadly supernatural forces, Ichabod has partnered with local police Lt. Abby Mills (Nicole Beharie

Why Does Keira Knightley Keep Getting Sent Back In Time?

You may have missed this amid all the Breaking Dawn noise, but there is another beautiful book adaptation hitting theaters this weekend that we’re very excited about — maybe you can make it a double feature? Anna Karenina marks the third collaboration between Keira Knightley and director Joe Wright, after their acclaimed work together in Atonement and Pride and Prejudice. It’s also about the thousandth time a director has chosen to cast Keira in a movie set in another time/far-off place, usually in the past, with the exception of Star Wars: Episode I. Early in her career, she appeared in TV adaptations of Oliver Twist and Doctor Zhivago. More recently, she’s worn all sorts of corsets and headpieces for the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, A Dangerous Method and The Duchess. After looking through this collection of work, we turned to Wright to explain what it

Anna Karenina Review

  • HeyUGuys
Director Joe Wright’s take on Tolstoy’s tragic love story, Anna Karenina, is bound to divide opinion, particularly after watching the initially distracting theatrical element of a film set within theatre set changes. Those who favour classic Russian epics, like the days of Doctor Zhivago, may well have envisaged this in grander, more realistic settings. Admittedly, it does take a moment to settle at the very beginning and to accept the hustle and bustle going on in almost ‘claustrophobic’ and tweet surroundings. However, this merely further establishes the growing psychological effect on its lead character.

Adapted by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard, Tolstoy’s story is an exploration of the power of love and how it affects a supposedly happily married woman, Anna (Keira Knightley), when she encounters the full effects of raw lust then emotion on her happiness and her marriage, rocking her world in late-19th-century Russian high society.

Keira Knightley Faces Off Against A Train In New Poster For 'Anna Karenina'

After unveiling a rather sumptuous trailer last month, the slowly building marketing campaign for Joe Wright's promisingly dazzling "Anna Karenina" continues, now with a new poster for the movie that puts Keira Knightley in the path of an oncoming train. Anyone who's read the book will know what that means. Well, it's a far less cluttered one sheet than the first one, revealing a bit more of the showy stage around which the narrative pivots, with Jude Law and Aaron Johnson thrown to the side. Anyway, Joe Wright is definitely going for something far beyond what we might come to expect in a period-based adaptation of a literary masterwork, yet the tone of the trailer is evocative of some of the great, classic pieces of cinema of yore (think "Doctor Zhivago"). Frankly, we're getting a Baz Luhrmann vibe but with a more restrained hand, and without the Jay-z tossed in for the kids.

James Franco isn’t the only A-lister who could be coming to Broadway this fall
There have been rumors for months that James Franco is on his way to Broadway, and the Oscar host said last week that he hopes the upcoming Nicole Kidman-led revival of Tennessee WilliamsSweet Bird of Youth will be his next project. (When contacted by EW, the show’s rep could only confirm that Franco might be headed to the Great White Way this fall). Am I shocked and excited? If anything James Franco decides to do still surprises you, you must also get a little rush when the sun rises or your toilet flushes, yet I trust him

Cinematical Seven: Keira Knightley's Costume Pics

When it was announced that Keira Knightley would be starring in the new film The Duchess, complete with all kinds of period dresses, folds, furbelows, corsets, bodices, hoops, ringlets, hats, big hair and heaven knows what else, the general response was: "what, again?" We can only guess whether Keira herself said the same thing, or if she simply took to the new costume like a beautiful, slender swan to water. Here's a rundown of Keira's other period, costume epics, ranging from worst to best:

7. Silk (2007)

Keira's most snore-inducing movie, though it's a close call. She plays Hélène Joncour, who has virtually nothing to do while her hubby is off having adventures in exotic lands. Her costumes are merely plain, with the occasional straw hat. If I remember correctly, she sometimes wears gardening gloves. Yawn.

6. Doctor Zhivago (2002)

Playing the bourgeois-born Lara, Keira got to wear ultra-romantic big fur hats and headscarves in this TV movie.

Keira Knightley Wanted for 'Jurassic' Sequel

Young British star Keira Knightley is poised to sign for a role that will see her soar into the Hollywood 'superleague'. The Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl actress is wanted by superstar director Steven Spielberg to take a leading role in the fourth Jurassic Park blockbuster. Keira, 18, gushes, "It was so amazing because I've been a big fan of the original film for years. Steven said he liked my work in Bend It Like Beckham and wanted to meet me. I think Sam Neill really pushed for me as well, because we had worked together before on Doctor Zhivago. There were actually two roles in Jurassic Park IV that Steven thought I might fit. First there was the granddaughter part. The other was substantially larger but I won't go into any details in case I make Steven angry." In-demand Keira has also signed up with Spielberg's Dreamworks production company for a role opposite Jude Law in book adaptation Tulip Fever.

'Dr. Zhivago' returns to Russia

'Dr. Zhivago' returns to Russia
LONDON -- Nearly half a century after the novel was first smuggled out of Russia to be published, Boris Pasternak's epic love story Dr. Zhivago is heading back to its native home -- this time as a lavish television series. In one of its first major sales deals with the territory, Granada International has sold its 3x75 telefilm to Russia's biggest television network, Channel One, formerly state broadcaster ORT. The deal is a unique licensing arrangement that needed the backing of the author's five surviving relatives, says Granada International managing director Nadine Nohr, who also believes the deal suggests an uplift in access to the Russian market.
