SEASON 1 - 4

SEASON 5

 

Las Vegas was an American television series from NBC running 2003 - 2008. The show focuses on a team of people working at the Montecito Resort & Casino in Las Vegas from dealing with issues that arise within the working environment, ranging from valet parking and restaurant management to casino security. 

The series originally aired on Monday nights. NBC would later move Las Vegas to Friday @ 9pm and then slide it to the 10pm time slot. Later the series would air as air in syndication as part of the TNT's weekday line-up with back to back episodes until mid-2013 where it was moved a 4am time slot and finally removed from the network completely.  

 

The series originally centered around Ed Deline (James Caan), a strict ex-CIA officer who went from being Head of Security to becoming President of Operations of the Montecito, whose job is to run the day-to-day operations of the casino. Following his departure from the series in Season 5, former Marine Danny McCoy (Josh Duhamel), Ed's former protégé, became the Montecito's new President of Operations under new owner, Texas millionaire CJ Cooper (Tom Selleck).

The series abruptly ended with a season ending cliffhanger because NBC canceled Las Vegas in the off season following season five - with a pregnant Delinda Deline on the floor bleeding.

BIG ED DELINE

     Big Edward Melvin Deline ( James Caan ) is the former President of Operations of the Montecito Resort & Casino, and a former member of the Board of Directors. He starts as Head of Security and Surveillance, but is promoted to President of Operations at the end of the eighth episode, when Gavin Brunson ( James McDaniel ) takes over the Montecito. He's portrayed as a loving husband and father, as well as a father figure to his employees, especially Danny. Nevertheless, he is a tough man and doesn't hesitate to use violence to get what he wants. As the former Director of Counter Intelligence for the CIA, his past has come back to haunt him on several occasions, most recently during his daughter's wedding in "Father of the Bride Redux". During Season 3, Ed is briefly in retirement until the Maloofs try to hire him for their potential casino in Macau. Eventually, Ed returns to his position when Casey Manning buys the casino.

DANNY McCOY  -  SURVEILLANCE

     Danny McCoy ( Josh Duhamel ) is initially Ed Deline's apprentice, surrogate son, and good friend, who is later promoted to Head of Security. The series' pilot episode is told largely from his perspective and features Danny doing voice-over narration. This convention was quickly dropped, although he remained the show's main character throughout its five-year run. After Ed's resignation in Season 3, Danny is made President of Operations of the Montecito Resort & Casino for a brief period. However, following Ed's return, Danny is officially reinstated as Head of Security in Season 3. He was born and raised in Las Vegas. Towards the end of Season 2, his father Larry McCoy (John Terry) dies in an accident and Danny inherits his father's construction company, McCoy Construction, and house. Danny sells his father's house and uses the money to pay for a condo. Danny is a former U.S. Marine, with guerrilla training and counter intelligence training. He is recalled into military service in Iraq at the end of Season 1. In season 2, he is awarded the Silver Star after he calls in an air-strike over his unit and himself when they are ambushed and overrun. Only he survives the air strike. He is involved in an on-and-off relationship with Ed Deline's daughter, Delinda, in Season 1. Danny and Mary Connell have known each other since childhood, and have had a confusing on-and-off relationship. Danny would eventually find his way back to Delinda, propose and have a child together. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MIKE CANNON - SURVEILLANCE 

     Mike Cannon (James Lesure) is an engineer, with both undergraduate and graduate degrees from MIT in Mechanical Engineering. He opens the series as head valet but is officially recruited by Ed Deline to the security department to help during Danny's military absence. He stays on as security personnel despite being paid less than his job as a valet. He is cured of his claustrophobia at the end of Season 1. Originally, in the pilot episode, Mike has a wife and daughter; this plot line is seemingly abandoned thereafter. Mike and Nessa become close in Season 2, until Nessa leaves to be with her dad and sister, without saying goodbye (she wanted to leave the series). In Season 5, Mike is promoted to Head of Security and Surveillance when Danny accepts the job as President of Operations for the Casino. Mike and season five recurring character Piper get marriedr. Mike is Danny best friend and has a habit of using a breath spray when he is going to talk to a beautiful woman. There is some discrepancy over whether Mike is a local or not. The initial season it is stated he is a local who moved back as evidenced in "Decks and Violence" through his conversations. However, in later seasons he stated he moved/stayed in Vegas to get out of debt he landed himself in when going on a poker tilt in "A Cannon Carol".

MARY CONNELL  -  SPECIAL EVENTS DIRECTOR

     Mary Connell ( Nikki Cox ) is the Special Events Director at the casino. Originally she was supposed to play the casino's personal hooker, but at the last minute during the pilot filming, Gary Scott Thompson changed it to Special Events Director. A Las Vegas native, her father sexually abused her when she was a child, and Danny always came to her rescue. In Season 3, Mary is rehired and promoted to Hotel Manager. In Season 4, she helps her stepmother and half-sisters testify against her father – a case which is lost because of his connections. In the episode "Bare Chested in the Park", she is shown purchasing a revolver to shoot her father in the Season 4 finale.  

   Producers seemed unable to find a position in the casino where Mary could fit in. They tied in James Caans departure with Nikki Cox's position on the show. Cox for some reason felt she needed a face lift and has one poorly done.
