Dennis Quaid in a cowboy hat and Michael Chiklis as a mobster? Yes, please.
The casting alone makes it hard to resist "Vegas"; thankfully, the drama doesn't disappoint. In fact, I'm more excited after the first episode about the places "Vegas" can go.
Inspired by a true story, Quaid plays Ralph Lamb, a rancher and former military police officer during WWII, who is stubbornly and aggressively trying to hold on to his land and raise his cattle while 1960s Las Vegas morphs into the gambling capital it will eventually become. He runs the land with his less hot-headed brother Jack (Jason O'Mara) and Lamb's son Dixon.
