Jonathan Rhys Meyers Casts No Reflection In Dracula

Jonathan Rhys Meyers

NBC has ordered 10 episodes of a new drama in which Jonathan Rhys Meyers portrays a man with a drinking problem.

As in he must drink the blood of the living in order to prolong his undeath.

That's right. The sexy former Tudor will play Dracula, the original vampire, in a tale that is both old and new.

The show, created by Cole Haddon, will be a new take on the classic character but will take place in the year 1890. NBC President Robert Greenblatt says:

"In the world of Twilight and True Blood and all the contemporized stories, we thought we'd go back to the original."

Unfortunately the network restrictions won't be able to give us the sex and violence we've come to expect from True Blood, but at least we know we'll have some eye candy in the form of sexy Jonathan Rhys.

Finally! An NBC show that sucks on purpose! JK!

    There was no sex in Dracula. Let's hope they stick to the original story by Bram Stoker.

    Whatever sex there was in Bram Stoker's Dracula was implied~Never seen.
    Jonathon Rhys Meyers will be very good in the part of The Count.
    He does very well in costume parts.
    I'm going to be looking foward to this series.
    I'm a sucker for period costume dramas ~and Dracula is going to be a good one.
