NBC's forthcoming series "Dracula" is setting up something of a love triangle, and it's just cast the third side.

Irish actress Victoria Smurfit ("About a Boy," "The Beach") will play Lady Jayne in the drama. Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays the title character, who's posing as a doctor in 1890s London.

Jayne will feel an instant attraction to Dracula (who's going by the name Alan Grayson), but he's hung up on Mina (Jessica DeGouw), whom he believes is the reincarnation of his late wife.

- CBS has cast Blake Garrett Rosenthal ("New Girl") as Anna Faris' 8-year-old son in its comedy pilot "Mom," from Chuck Lorre.

- Patty Jenkins ("Monster," "The Killing") has been tapped to direct ABC's drama pilot "Betrayal." It's about a woman who's having an affair with a defense lawyer -- who happens to be trying a case against her husband, who's a prosecutor. »
