Nicole Beharie - best-known for her role opposite her now-boyfriend Michael Fassbender in 2011's Shame - has been tapped to play the female lead in a modern television adaptation of Sleepy Hollow.
Beharie will play a detective in the small town of Sleepy Hollow, poised to leave for the FBI Academy in a week when she gets involved with Ichabod Crane, a fugitive indicted for the murder of a policeman who claims to be a soldier from the Revolutionary War.

Orlando Jones and Dexter's Katia Winter have also been cast as a detective and Ichabod Crane's wife, respectively.
