As first reported by E! News, Jeffrey will play Leena Reyes, a former U.S. Border Patrol officer in Texas who returns to Sleepy Hollow as the new Sheriff. As we previously reported, the forceful and commanding leader, who does also have a warm and maternal side, might not be a friend to Abbie (Nicole Beharie) and Ichabod (Tom Mison).
Barr will portray Nick Hawley, a ruggedly handsome bounty hunter. The adventurous, archetypal loner, who has a rough and tumble demeanor, assists Abbie and Ichabod with a supernatural case. His casting was first reported by TVLine.com.
Jeffrey and Barr join the previously cast Timothy Busfield, who will play Founding Father Benjamin Franklin.
