Sarah Jones is relocating from The Rock to Sin City.

Jones, who played Det. Rebecca Madsen on J.J. Abram’s one-and-done Fox series Alcatraz, is the newest addition to CBS’ upcoming drama Vegas.

Vegas is based on the real-life Ralph Lamb’s experience as a Nevada sheriff in the 1960s, right around the time that the desert city cemented its anything-goes reputation. Per TVLine’s sister site Deadline.com, Jones will play the firecracker daughter of a powerful Chicago man. She’ll be associated with Michael Chiklis’ Vincent Savino, a Windy City gangster out to take over Vegas.

The retro drama also stars Dennis Quaid – who plays Lamb — Carrie Ann Moss and Jason O’Mara.

Jones’ other television credits include Justified, House and Sons of Anarchy.

Vegas premieres Tuesday, Sept. 25 (10/9c) on CBS, following NCIS: Los Angeles.

    I misread this as Alcatraz Moves… I was a little disappointed when I realized my mistake but good for her. I’ve enjoyed her performances and I might have to check this out.

      I misread it at first,too. I so want to know what happened on/in Alcatraz!
      This show does sound interesting though…

    This chick is gorgeous but this is going to be another “one-and-done” series for her…

  3. Steve says:

    I really hope this works out. I miss Alcatraz. Any hope she can bring Jorge Garcia with her?

  4. Z says:

    I wonder if we will ever find out the truth about Alcatraz.
    They should release something telling the fans the mystery behind the disappearances etc.

    what’s with the dual-tone hair color in that picture?

  6. mia says:

    Uhoh….Jones + O’Mara in a show together. Its going to get cancelled. I really enjoy both those actors, but they have bad luck.
    I still miss Alcatraz.

    She looks a lot younger with this hair. I didn’t recognize her for a second! Cool news.
