Jonathan Rhys Meyers may have recently completed roles in "The Tudors" and "Albert Nobbs," but he's not ready to return to the 21st century yet. His latest role will return him to the 19th century to play the coolest vampire of them all, Dracula.
On Tuesday, NBC announced the 10-episode series "Dracula," starring Rhys Meyers as the count, who travels to London in the 1890s. He poses as an American entrepreneur seeking to introduce modern technology to Victorian society, but in reality he's seeking revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries before. Of course, he falls for a girl who might or might not be the reincarnation of his lost love.
