Orlando Jones (born April 10, 1968) is an American actor and comedian best known for his roles in MADtv, Sleepy Hollow, and other film and tv roles.

He is also notable for a strong and active social media presence, and is popular with many fans due to his interest in fanworks and other fannish activities, including his support for slash fanfiction.

On the topic of slash fanfiction about Sleepy Hollow he was quoted as saying:

"I like the slash, and I think I like it because I feel there are so many people who are under-represented - or not represented at all - in mainstream Hollywood entertainment. I really enjoy the fan fiction that embraces character and themes that showcase those people - their love, their desires, their passions.

"I think that's really cool - and I hope the show as it continues embraces that more, because that's an opportunity to tell stories that other people might not be familiar with. I mean, there's slash of me and Ichabod... that's like, 'What?!' and then I read it and it was really well-written.

"I get it - it's another way to go but it's no less valid than what we're doing and it's certainly interesting, so I really get a kick out of that. To read fan fiction and to see fan art and to watch other people's artistry paint different colours on top of what we're doing... how can you be mad at that? That's just completely awesome!"[1]
