Sean Hayes, Dracula

NBC

Fun fact: Before Sean Hayes got his own show on NBC (Sean Saves the World), he auditioned for other Peacock series looking for the right fit. And we have exclusive footage of one of his screen tests: Dracula.

NBC's new drama Dracula starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers is a reimaging of the classic novel by Bram Stoker. Sean Hayes doesn't quite pull off the dark and brooding vibe that Meyers has, but that's not the part of the audition that he stumbles on. 

Watch the clip below of Hayes previewing NBC's new primetime lineup and see if you can understand a word he is saying.

Sean Saves the World premieres Oct. 3 and Dracula bows Oct. 25.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
