Lucasfilm and Disney will soon kick off production on 'Star Wars: Episode 7' for release in 2015. Original players Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fischer (Princess Leia) and Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) are all, without official announcements, reportedly reprising their roles for the affair, but who are some of the new stars taking on this new trilogy? One person it seems it's not is NBC's new 'Dracula,' Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
'Star Wars Episode 7' will bring back original franchise cast members like Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, but we may have learned which new actor will be joining them in the most anticipated film in years. Drumroll, please...are 'Star Wars' fans ready to see Jonathan Rhys Meyers join the saga?
NBC has yet to produce a single image from its forthcoming 'Dracula' series with 'The Tudors' star Jonathan Rhys-Meyers in the title role, but that hasn't stopped the Dan Knauf-helmed drama from making some strong genre castings. In addition to 'Arrow' star Jessica De Gouw's casting as the female series lead, 'Dracula' has also recruited 'Game of Thrones' star Nonso Anozie and 'Merlin' alum Katie McGrath as series regulars.

NBC's been rather quiet on the front of its upcoming straight-to-series adaptation 'Dracula,' little known other than 'The Tudors' star Jonothan Rhys-Meyers would take the title role for a series helmed by 'Carnivale' creator Dan Knauf. Now, new reports have emerged that recent (and future) 'Arrow' guest star Jessica De Gouw has joined the production in the role of the series' female lead Mina, but why have 'Dracula' details been in the crypt for so long?
Well, this is an odd play for
the Trade Federation NBC. All season long we've been following the new series on NBC's development slate, including those like 'Hannibal' which won't debut until mid-season, but now it seems a rather high-profile 'Dracula' adaptation with Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the iconic role has sprung up out of nowhere. So what story will NBC's 'Dracula' tell, and how big is the episode order?
