In the forthcoming period drama, TVLine has learned, Kretschmann’s Van Helsing is a brilliant professor obsessed with revenge and power. He may be a greater threat to the public than the titular count (played by The Tudors‘ Jonathan Rhys Meyers).
The 10-episode series, based on Bram Stoker’s novel of the same name, finds Dracula preparing to unleash hell on the Victorian society responsible for ruining his life. But he’s thrown when he falls for a woman who’s a dead ringer for his beloved, long-deceased wife.
Jackson-Cohen plays Roddy on the ITV series Mr. Selfridge; he also appeared in the film Going the Distance and as Prince William (opposite Girls‘ Allison Williams) in Funnyordie.com’s Will & Kate: Before Happily Ever After.
NBC has not yet announced a premiere date.
