Starz released a new poster for Magic City with the tagline “The beautiful life is about to get ugly.”
Set in the 1950s, the series follows the mobsters, politicians and entertainers involved in establishing Miami’s first big-name hotel, just as Fidel Castro is taking control of Cuba and putting an end to gambling in Havana. The Miramar Playa Hotel is run by Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who essentially sells his soul to the devil, aka mob boss Ben “The Butcher” Diamond (Danny Huston), to finance his dream.
Great news! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jeffrey Dean Morgan is now signed to star in Magic City. Filming will start this year for a 2012 airing.
They’re also reporting that the roles of the sons are cast or close to getting cast. Also, check out below for character descriptions for the sons:
British actor Christian Cooke has been cast in the Starz period drama Magic City, about the political and criminal machinations of 1960s Miami.
And Deadline.com reports another actor is in negotiations to play another son:
British actor Christian Cooke and Steven Strait (Stop-Loss) are in final negotiations for co-starring roles opposite Jeffrey Dean Morgan in Starz’s upcoming 10-episode drama series Magic City. Set in Miami in the late 1950s-early 1960s, Magic City chronicles the collision of mobsters, politicians and entertainers at the first preeminent Miami hotel just as Fidel Castro takes control of Cuba and shuts down Havana as a gambling haven. It centers on Ike (Morgan), a suave Jewish-American man who builds the hotel and along the way makes some strange bedfellows and many powerful enemies. Strait will play Stevie, Ike’s oldest son, a high-living hedonist. Cooke will play Ike’s youngest son, a sweet young man who is attending law school while helping his dad.
