Those who kept up with the madcap insanity of FOX's 'Sleepy Hollow' through the recent season finale were treated to one wallop of a shocker with 'Fringe' star John Noble's guest character, Henry Parrish, so the latest development should prove far less surprising. Not only will Noble reprise his mysterious role for the second season later on this year, but the former Walter Bishop has been promoted to 'Hollow' regular alongside guest star Lyndie Greenwood!
'Fringe' star John Noble won't make his official 'Sleepy Hollow' debut as "The Sin-Eater" until tomorrow's all-new episode of the same name, but already fans of the bonkers modern-day Headless Horseman drama can count on his return. Not only will Noble's character Henry Parrish recur in several episodes over the coming weeks, but Noble will also return for 'Sleepy Hollow' season 2 in 2014.
Difficult to believe as it may have seemed only a few weeks ago, FOX's 'Sleepy Hollow' has definitively emerged as the breakout hit of the season, already renewed for season 2 with its own unique order. And while the series takes a brief hiatus before introducing 'Fringe' vet John Noble in an important recurring role, producers have finally addressed one of the series' most head-scratching questions yet.
FOX's time-turning thriller 'Sleepy Hollow' got off to an exceptionally good start this past week in spite of only moderate critical reactions, but the modern headless thriller has really begun to hit the 'Fringe.' FOX favorite John Noble has been announced for a major role on the series to unite with producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, but how long will our old pal Walter Bishop be sticking around?
Sad as we are that 'Fringe' said goodbye after five years with recent finale episode "An Enemy of Fate" perhaps no actor deserved greater spotlight throughout the series than John Noble. The New Zealand actor will soon be heard as Braniac in the genre-friendly 'Superman: Unbound,' and recent rumors have put him in a prominent role in the next 'Star Wars' trilogy, but for now the 'Fringe' star has made his first new TV gig since the series, stopping by CBS' 'The Good Wife.' Find out about Walter Bishop's next life inside!
If parallel universes, shape-shifters, years in a mental institution or a lifetime of LSD aren't enough to kill Walter Bishop, you can bet that a little bit of sleeplessness isn't going to slow down 'Fringe' series star John Noble. Earlier we'd heard that production had briefly halted on 'Fringe' season 5 so the actor could seek treatment for an apparent sleep disorder, but now reports are emerging that the actor is safely back to work. But will his condition recur?
'Fringe' would be nothing if not for the masterful (and tragically Emmy-snubbed) performance of actor John Noble, and so it would seem in fact that 'Fringe' is literally nothing without Noble. Production has temporarily halted on the fifth, and final season of the cult sci-fi hit, allowing time for the actor to recuperate, but what malady could fell the noble Walter Bishop? Is the fifth season of 'Fringe' in trouble, or in need of some good rest?
