Today’s casting news is so juicy, that you just may want to take bite out of it. There’s a new Dracula series being put together for NBC with the very yummy Jonathan Rhys Meyers set to star. Joining him as the female lead is Jessica De Gouw. She’s the same young woman who recently brought to life the Huntress for the CW’s Arrow.

I can hear the fangirls screaming already. Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was practically born for this role. He’s always been nice to look at in my book. If you’re a fan who has yet to see him in Ride with the Devil, Match Point or August Rush, then you, my friend, have got some DVDs to go rent.

On the television side, the actor is probably best know for playing King Henry VIII in the saucy Showtime series, The Tudors. »
