The “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” news continues to roll out! A couple days ago we learned that Sam Raimi will be directing the pilot he wrote with Ivan Raimi, and now Deadline is reporting that Jill Marie Jones will be playing lead opposite Bruce Campbell. Jones is probably best known for her role as Cynthia Irving on Fox’s Sleepy Hollow and she also appeared as Pandora in one episode of American Horror Story: Asylum.
In “Ash VS. Evil Dead”, Jones will be playing Michigan State Trooper Amanda Fisher, who suspects Ash in the murder of her partner. After learning the truth, Fisher teams up with Ash to take on the Evil Dead.
How do you guys thing the show is shaping up so far? I haven’t watched Sleepy Hollow at all, does anyone who has think Jones has the chops to hang with Ash?
