Thomas Kretschmann (KING KONG, THE RIVER, DRACULA 3D) has officially signed on for NBC's upcoming DRACULA series, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Kretschmann will play the legendary 'Van Helsing,' though one slightly different than the canonical understanding of the man. In NBC's series, Helsing is a revenge-seeking professor who may prove to be more of a threat to the public than to the infamous vampire.

Oliver Jackson-Cohen, most recently of MR. SELFRIDGE, has also signed on to play 'Jonathan Harker,' a journalist.

The 10-episode drama series is set in London and will feature Meyers as famed vampire 'Dracula' who is posing as American entrepreneur Alan Grayson. The out-of-towner claims he is trying to bring modern science to Victorian society, when in reality, "he hopes to wreak Revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier but falls hopelessly in love with Mina Murray (De Gouw) who appears to be the reincarnation of his dead wife."

Kretschmann joins previously announced cast members Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Jessica De Gouw, Katie McGrath, Nonso Anozie, and Victoria Smurfit.

Dracula is executive produced by Colin Callender, Tony Krantz, Gareth Neame and Dan Knauf for and Universal Television.
