Alcatraz's Sarah Jones Moving To Vegas

Sarah Jones on Alcatraz

Fans of the short-lived FOX series Alcatraz may not have any more new episodes coming, but at least they can take solace in knowing that the talented cast is moving on to greener pastures.

Sarah Jones played female lead Rebecca Madsen on Alcatraz, a no-nonsense San Francisco detective that came to be involved with the search for the missing guards and prisoners that suddenly returned decades after vanishing from the famed prison. Today, TV Guide reported that the 29-year-old Jones has landed another juicy role on CBS' upcoming drama Vegas, which is inspired by the real life exploits of 1960's "Sin City" Sheriff Ralph Lamb and his attempts to clean up a literal gangster's paradise.

Jones will portray Mia, the daughter of a Chicago organized crime big-shot that works alongside powerful gangster Vincent Savino (Michael Chiklis) at his Vegas casino. Besides the obvious differences in the setting, time period, and side of the law the two characters operate on, Jones offered the following comments about the similarities and differences between the two powerful women -

"What Rebecca and Mia have in common is that if any man gets in their way, they know how to handle them. The other comparison I would say is that they both were raised by men, in a sense. Rebecca was raised by her uncle in the police force, and Mia was raised by her father in the mob, so those are the similarities. Mia is a complete 180 [in other ways]. She's a lady. She's highly educated. Not that Rebecca wasn't a prodigy in what she did, but Mia went to business school when women weren't going to excel in their studies. She's a bit of a princess too. She's mob royalty almost. She's been treated as such, so she's this little kitten until she walks into a board meeting, and then she turns into a tiger."

She is pushing for double digits in both brains and beauty..something about her look as a 60's mob queen does not fit that decade..she is too good for the period.

After watching her act in Alcatraz, Sarah Jones being cast in Vegas is a far more alluring factor in watching the new series than any of the show's preview commercials! ;-)
