'Sleepy Hollow's Tom Mison loves bees, reads Vonnegut and drinks whiskey
In this mash-up of Washington Irving''s "Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle," along with some bits from the biblical Book of Revelation and a dose of "National Treasure," 31-year-old Mison plays Revolutionary War soldier Ichabod Crane.
After beheading the now-Headless Horseman in battle and getting impaled for his trouble, Crane slumbers for a couple centuries or so and wakes up -- along with the Horseman -- in modern-day Sleepy Hollow, N.Y. There he gets embroiled in supernatural mysteries while trying to keep a good head on his shoulders.
In real life, Mison might need a good back massage and a ride home after he downs his three favorite alcoholic beverages (but don't suggest coffee in Swansea) ...
