Sam Worthington'Dracula: Year Zero' may have found its leading man -- and no, it isn't Robert Pattinson. Universal has now confirmed that 'Avatar''s Sam Worthington is in negotiations to star in the vampire epic from director Alex Proyas ('I, Robot'), about the early days of Dracula in Transylvania (we take it 'Dracula Begins' was too obvious).

And suddenly, a box-office star was born.[EW.com]
