Amandla Stenberg & Jill Marie Jones Make Their 'Sleepy Hollow' Debuts Tonight. Watch Preview

Jill Marie Jones (who you’ll probably most remember from Girlfriends) and Amandla Stenberg, best known for playing Rue in 2012’s The Hunger Games, and as the young Zoe Saldana in Colombiana, will be introduced during tonight’s episode of Fox’s smash hit Sleepy Hollow, which also co-stars Nicole Beharie and Tom Mison

Both actresses joined the show’s cast last month, with Jones playing the Cynthia, ex-wife of Orlando Jones’ character (Captain IrvingSleepy Hollow‘s head of police), and mother to she and the Captain’s teenage daughter, Macey, played by Stenberg.

Ahead of tonight’s all-new episode, titled “Sanctuary,” Fox has released a clip featuring Stenberg’s entrance, as she runs into Jenny, Abbie’s sister, as played by Lyndie Greenwood.

I think the relationship between us and our families is a really hot topic in films. People love to make it difficult to destroy. We believe although we are apart but we still love each others. That's true. Our love for parents is the most nature and strong. She acted it very spontaneously, and she looks healthy, vigorous, and clean.
Looking forward to it!


Actually started watching again just to see Amandla & Jill Marie. Looking forward to seeing the episode.


Amandla's doing well. Columbiana, Hunger Games, and now Sleepy Hollow show.

Looks like a good role for her. She KICKED A$$ in COLUMBIANA! Ayyyyunnnnnnduh, if you want a Lyndie Greenwood in a more genteel role, view NIKITA starting at Season 2. Sexy and smart!


Forget Scandal. Sleepy Hollow is the best network show featuring an African American female lead, not to mention one of the best new network dramas period. Nicole Beharie > Kerry Washington. Now that Irving is on board with Abby and Ichy, I am hoping he gets more of an arc than stereotypical skeptical police captain. Looks like that may happen now that we are meeting his ex-wife and daughter.


Sleepy Hollow is a general market TV show with a predominantly black cast. And they're adding more black folks! Awesome. I haven't missed an episode. It's creepy and thrilling with a touch of humor here and there to offset the chills.


DWTS is about to wrap up on ABC, so I can begin really watching "Sleepy Hollow".
