On Saturday, Starz held its panel at the winter Television Critics Association event, and in the process fans of “Magic City” everywhere received some very exciting news: Danny Huston will be back, and he’s going to have some fantastic company.
In addition to all of the familiar faces coming back to Miami for more action in this risque hotel business, James Caan (“The Godfather”) will also be entering the fray. There are not too many details about his character known just yet, at least outside of the fact that he will be playing the mobster boss to Huston’s character.
As for why the legendary actor (whose most-notable TV credit is nearly 100 episodes of “Las Vegas”) decided to join this show specifically, he started things off seriously, and then ended with a pretty funny nod to all of the graphic content on the show:
“I’m at the point where I care very much about what I do and I try to maintain a little bit of integrity … I was promised that I would have 3 or 4 love scenes and of course they lied.”
There is no announced premiere date just yet for “Magic City” season 2, but we expect it to launch during the spring just as we saw the show do the first time around. There is plenty more that still needs to be revealed, but Starz is obviously hoping to take the show to the next level considering that “Spartacus” is ending and they have already canceled Kelsey Grammer’s “Boss.” The numbers for season 1 of this show were solid by network standards, but nothing that hit the ball out of the park.
