Ugh. Sleepy Hollow. Stop stealing all the awesome!

Sources confirm that the man who shall forever be known to Alias fans as TV's  "Spy Daddy," Victor Garber, has been cast in a pivotal role on the new Fox fan favorite series: Ichabod Crane's (Tom Mison) father.

Does this make Ichabod Crane and Sydney Bristow (Jennifer Garner) siblings? Of course it does! (It doesn't.)

We are told Garber has signed on for at least one episode, with the option of multiple episodes, for the new FOX drama on Monday nights.

The down side? Sleepy Hollow wraps up its first season in January, which means Garber likely wouldn't return until season two. TVLine first reported the casting.

The Fox series, which is a modern-day twist on the Washington Irving's classic, has been pulling in about 7 million viewers, and has already been renewed for a second season. The series premiere was watched by more than 22 million viewers (live + DVR), making Sleepy Hollow one of the TV season's most-watched pilots.

Tune in tonight for the next episode!

What do you think of Spy Daddy as Ichabod's daddy? Can we throw a Will Tippin in the mix?
