Deadline report that Made In Jersey/Human Target actress Janet Montgomery has been cast as Grace Van Helsing in ABC's Gothica, which will re-imagine some classic horror icons, giving us a present-day take on the legends of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray. So far so Alan Moore's League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen right? Well, modern day setting aside, yes. Apparently Montgomery's Van Helsing will be a "Pulitzer prize winning journalist from New York who takes over her family’s hometown newspaper". The show will also star Chris Egan as Dorian Gray, who provides her with the $20 million she needs to retain control of the paper, and To Ellis as Victor Frankenstein, to whom Van Helsing was engaged. No word yet on whether any other, more supernatural, characters will be popping up, but I'd say it's a safe bet.

LXG could have been alot better. Anyone whos read the comic knows it.

You mean the Nolan Style of casting an otherwise good actor who's utterly wrong for the part?

I love Christopher Nolan. His non-Batman movies are very entertaining.

Oh dear. This should be terrible but mildly amusing in that 14 car pile up kind of way. This just reminds me how much I'm looking forward to Sam Mendes' Penny Dreadful on Showtime. Now THAT will be an awesome TV series.

If Janet Montgomery was at least 6 foot tall shed be the perfect WW for TV and maybe the movie. The problem is she is only 5' 6" and Rebecca Hall is around 5' 9".

Sorry but you guys gotta stop thinking with your penis when it comes to casting WW and start thinking about the mythos. Shes a fricken amazon, remember??
