NBC's Dracula Exclusive Preview Video: 'As American as God, Guns and Bourbon'

Bram Stoker laid down the blueprint, but NBC has tweaked the author’s design in the latest incarnation of Dracula, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors, Match Point) and premiering Friday, Oct. 25 at 10/9c.

In the following exclusive video, Rhys Meyers explains how the central action still takes place in Victorian England, but how his character Vlad Tepes (who gets his fang on under the titular moniker) is masquerading as an American industrialist named Alexander Grayson (probably not an ancestor of Revenge‘s villainess Victoria).
