Johnny Depp

Sleepy Hollow

19 Nov, 1999

Depp plays Ichabod Crane in Tim Burton’s adaptation of Washington Irving’s classic story. Crane is an investigator from the city sent to investigate a string of decapitations in a neighboring village.  What he finds are townsfolk convinced that the Headless Horseman is the culprit. It’s up to Crane to discover what is really happening before more villagers lose their heads. Co-starring Christina Ricci, Michael Gambon.

I was sort of doing Snoopy dances thinking I was going to get to wear a long nose and big ears. The classic Ichabod Crane from the book — Washington Irving’s description is really beautifully written — (included) a long, sliding nose, huge ears; and (Irving) talks about his hands being very far away from his body, and long feet. So, yeah. I did want to do that.
