Esai Morales to Join “Magic City” in Season Two

Magic City, the mob drama set in a Miami casino in the rough-and-tumble, pre-Castro 1960s, hasn’t set the world on fire so far…but it was granted a second season, and the show will be stacking the deck with some new powerhouse stars, including James Caan and Esai Morales. Morales, perhaps best remembered recently for ABC’s NYPD Blue and SyFy’s Caprica, as recent appearances on USA’s Fairly Legal with Sarah Shahi, will play Carlos Ruiz, “a former Castro loyalist who now works to free Cuba from the man he formerly considered family.” It will be a recurring role through the 2013 season.
