The Top 5 Actors We Want to See Play Dracula in the New Series From the ‘Sherlock’ Team

The team behind BBC’s hit series Sherlock is reuniting for a new project about that famous undead baddie: Dracula. That’s right: According to Variety, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss will write the series, and Sue Vertue will produce it. The show will have a format similar to Sherlock: a miniseries with longer episodes.

Cumberbatch imbues the robotic, impersonal genius Sherlock Holmes with a degree of charm and likability, which makes him perfect for the role.
