‘Sleepy Hollow’ Movie Cast: Then and Now
About 16 years has passed since “Sleepy Hollow” dropped in movie theaters, flaunting an impressive cast that included thespians and A-listers. And now the question: where are the stars of the film inspired by Washington Irving’s 1820 short story?
To this day, the actor, who played Ichabod Crane, still enjoys A-list status and continues to star in big-budget, tentpole flicks. He recently starred in “Alice Through the Looking Glass” and will next be seen in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” which is slated for a 2017 release.
This A-list Hollywood veteran played Katrina Van Tassel in the flick and went on to make many more movies in the next decade and a half. She will appear in the upcoming film “Mothers and Daughters.” She also lent her voice in “The Smurfs 2,” by the way.
With an impressive Hollywood resume, filmmakers and actors consider it an honor to work alongside a seasoned acting veteran such as Walken. Nevertheless, the Oscar-winning actor went on to star in other films after his turn in “Sleepy Hollow,” with a good number of them earning critical acclaim and even box office success. He recently voiced the character King Louie in the live-action adaptation of “The Jungle Book.” Still an A-lister, this mister!
Lady Van Tassel, in this movie adaptation, was portrayed most capably by Richardson, an English stage and film actress. She figured in yet other supernatural-themed flicks, such as “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part1” in 2010. She will be next seen in “Stronger,” which is currently in production.
The respected and multi-awarded actor took on the role of Peter Van Garrett in “Sleepy Hollow,” adding more luster to the already bright and shiny ensemble of a cast. He went on to make more movies, showing that age is no obstacle to his Hollywood career. He was the voice of Mr. Rzykruski in “Frankenweenie” and also appeared in a number of TV shows and made-for-TV films.
Casper Van Dien
After starring in “Starship Troopers,” Van Dien went on to appear in other films, one of which is “Sleepy Hollow” (Brom Van Brunt). He continued to appear in a couple more films, although none were as successful as his breakout flick or “Sleepy Hollow.” He’s still active in the industry to this day. Unfortunately, his marriage hit the skids last year as he filed for divorced from his wife of 16 years.
The Burgomaster of “Sleepy Hollow” is also Saruman in “The Lord of the Rings.” Lee also appeared as Count Dooku in “Star Wars II” and “Star Wars III,” which are only few of many major production he got involved in. As one of director Tim Burton’s favorite actors, he has also lent his thespic skills and voice in a number of other Burton flicks, such as “The Corpse Bride” and “Alice in Wonderland.” Due to his age, Lee’s projects have mostly involved voice acting gigs.
Lisa Marie Smith
In the movie, Smith played Lady Crane, lead character Ichabod Crane’s mother. In real life, she was Burton’s girlfriend for a number of years, until that fateful year when the director met actress Helena Bonham Carter while working on “Planet of the Apes” in 2001. Smith continues to dabble in the entertainment industry, with her most recent work being 2015’s “We Are Still Here.”
She’s yet another English rose in the American production, playing the role of Sarah. She later appeared in a small role in “Alice in Wonderland” in 2010 and also appeared in a number of TV shows. She currently resides in Southern California as wife to “Selma” actor David Oyelowo.
Who knew Albus Dumbledore would appear in a Burton film? We’re talking about the actor who played Harry Potter’s wise mentor, Michael Gambon. He took on the character Baltus Van Tassel in “Sleepy Hollow” and continues to act in film and in a number of TV shows. He’s said to be cast in an adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s “The Casual Vacancy.”
