‘Alcatraz’ Star Sarah Jones Moving to CBS’ ‘Vegas’
R.I.P. ‘Alcatraz,’ we hardly knew ye. Word of potential revivals for FOX’s moderate one-season hit ‘Alcatraz’ certainly seem to be escaping our grasp more and more, as earlier we learned that ‘LOST‘ star Jorge Garcia might take a role in the coming season of ‘Once Upon A Time.’ Now, the series’ other lead Sarah Jones has booked a trip to upcoming CBS drama ‘Vegas,’ but for how long, and as whom?
According to Deadline, former ‘Alcatraz’ star Sarah Jones hasn’t wasted much time in booking her latest series regular role, moving to CBS’ ‘Vegas.’ Though not appearing in the pilot episode, and not yet officially named, Jones will play smart, fiery daughter of one of Chicago’s most powerful men who works in the casino running the skim.
‘Vegas’ chronicles the true story of former Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph Lamb, a rancher recruited to bring order to Las Vegas in its heyday of the 1960s, as gambling and entertainment mecca. Actor Dennis Quaid plays Lamb, who comes to clash with
Vic Mackey Michael Chiklis’ Vincent Savino, a Chicago gangster who plans to make the city of Las Vegas his own. The series also co-stars ‘The Matrix’ babe Carrie Ann Moss and former ‘Terra Nova‘ star Jason O’Mara.
What say you? Do you think Sarah Jones looks better on the wrong side of the law for ‘Vegas,’ or are you still in mourning for ‘Alcatraz?’ Give us your take in the comments below!
