NBC adds to ‘Dracula’ cast

Kretschmann, Jackson-Cohen set for Peacock series

Thomas Kretschmann and Oliver Jackson-Cohen have been cast as series regulars in NBC’s upcoming drama series “Dracula.”

Kretschmann (“King Kong”) will play Abraham Van Helsing, a brilliant professor with a cool exterior who has a dangerous obsession with revenge and power. Jackson-Cohen (“The Raven”) has been cast as Jonathan Harker, a journo desperate to climb the ranks of the aristocracy.

Kretschmann, incidentally, played the role of Dracula in last year’s Italian horror pic “Dracula 3D.”

Pair joins a cast that includes Jessica De Gouw, Katie McGrath, Nonso Anozie and Victoria Smurfit. Jonathan Rhys Meyers will play Dracula.

Ten-episode series reintroduces Dracula as he arrives in London in the 1890s, posing as an American entrepreneur. In reality, he is seeking revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier.

Peacock aims to bow the program this fall.

“Dracula” will be exec produced by Colin Callender for Playground, Tony Krantz for Flame Ventures, Gareth Neame for Carnival Films, Dan Knauf and Universal TV.

Jackson-Cohen is repped by WME, Management 360 and United Agents. Kretschmann is repped by APA.
