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.Follow @kimroots
