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