WILMINGTON, NC. I sit down with Matt Barr on the "Sleepy Hollow" set in Wilmington, NC in late August without really knowing much about the actor's character, Noah Hawley.
I know he's got Han Solo rogue swagger and a holstered firearm, but little else. The reports when Barr was cast described his character as a bounty hunter and then he was later described as an arms dealer, two descriptions with a potentially wide gulf between them.
Nearly two months later, I've "acted" in a scene with Barr -- possibly appearing in Episode 8, until they decide to cut me out for reasons that I certainly won't begrudge -- and watched two episodes featuring Hawley and I'm still not sure I know all that much more.
Hawley first popped up in the season's third episode and he returned in the fourth, both times on the trail of the same artifact Crane and Abbie were looking for, which isn't unsuspicious, though we have no reason to distrust him, at least not yet. We're aware he has some backstory with Lyndie Greenwood's Jenny, but that hasn't been dealt with much.
In fact, my going-in-blind interview from the set still provides some background that maybe we haven't spotted this far, which you either will or won't view as spoilers.
We also discussed the "Harper's Island" and "Hellcats" veteran's return to Wilmington, where he previous terrorized Peyton on "One Tree Hill."
