TV – ABC’s ‘Gothica’ Pilot Casts Frankenstein & Dorian Gray

In more television casting news, ABC’s new pilot Gothica has cast a couple of its lead actors.

Chris Egan will play Dorian Gray and Tom Ellis will portray Victor Frankenstein in the project, set in the present day, which weaves together a mythology that incorporates the legends of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray.

In this incarnation of the story, written by Matt Lopez, Victor Frankenstein (Ellis) runs a hospital that also does biotech research and believes that he may have a way to bring his recently deceased daughter back to life. Victor was once romantically involved with the show’s lead character, Grace Van Helsing. Dorian Gray (Egan) is a wealthy playboy who invests $20 million in Grace’s newspaper.
