In his varied and long career, actor Orlando Jones has flipped it from comedy to drama and back again. So many people think of him as a comic actor, but he’s never done a standup show. The multifaceted actor, who was also a high school basketball star, did start out as a comedy writer, beginning his career writing for the classic sitcom “A Different World,” then heading to “MadTV” and other shows. (He did, however, have a short-lived comedy show in 2003.)
This season, Jones gets to show his versatility once again on the new Fox show “Sleepy Hollow,” which revisits the legend of Ichabod Crane.
