Jill Marie Jones to Join Sleepy Hollow


Former Girlfriends actress Jill Marie Jones has found a new gig.

According to published reports, Jill will be joining the cast of Fox’s freshman hit Sleepy Hollow.

The show is presently on hiatus but will return with new episodes on November 4th. Jill will make her debut on the November 25th episode, where she will play the ex-wife of Captain Frank Irving (Orlanda Bloom), and mother of his teenage daughter Macey.

The Macey character will be played by Hunger Games actress Amandla Stenberg, also a new addition to the cast.

If you’ve been keeping track… and I have… then you know Jill and Amalda are the fifth and sixth Brown Sistas to appear on Sleepy Hollow this season. At this rate, the show has probably surpassed all other network series’ combined.

Jill Marie Jones’ New Micro-Series

Have you guys been keeping up with Jill Marie Jones’ TBS micro-series “Gillian in Georgia”? I admit that after reporting on the series back in April I actually forgot to tune in and watch. Seeking to rectify the situation, I hit up TBS online and luckily all the episodes are shown in full on their website.

For those who haven’t yet heard about the series, Jill plays a New York fashionista (Gillian) who visits her sister (Alicia) in Georgia, only to find her laid up with an injury and expecting Gillian to step in and help run her household- which includes three rambunctious children and a husband.

Never one to back down from a challenge, Gillian jumps in to help, but not without some resistance from Alicia’s husband, Cedric. Eventually, Gillian stops feeling like a fish out of water as she connects with her family – and a handsome local. But just as Gillian begins to consider giving up city life for small town living, she gets a phone call that could change everything.

The show airs every Wednesday during episodes of Meet of the Browns. You can check out last week’s episode below.
