'Sleepy Hollow''s Headless Horseman Speaks!

EW talks to Richard Cetrone about playing the notorious villain

Posted on

He’s TV’s most menacing new villain, and he’s never said a word. Now Sleepy Hollow‘s Richard Cetrone, a.k.a. the Headless Horseman, has broken his silence after recently leaving the Fox drama for a film project. Until you’re asked to act without a cranium, says Cetrone, “you don’t realize how much you show emotion with the tilt of your head.” (When filming, he wore a green hood that was digitally erased in postproduction.) Will he root for Headless’ quest for a skull now that he’s handed the role off? “Nah, I think he’s more interesting without his head.”
