Another show on my to-watch list, because I have't seen a single episode yet. Magic City turns up the heat in Miami by casting rap Rick Ross to play a character named "Butterball," the proprietor of an illegal Cuban/American gambling house in Miami known as a "bolita." Are you ready for this? By the way, season 2 will premiere this summer. The full story via press release from Starz: (Beverly Hills, Calif. - January 8, 2013) - "Magic City" has added another famous face to its all-star lineup. Season two of the critically acclaimed series will feature legendary rapper Rick Ross as "Butterball," the proprietor of an illegal Cuban/American gambling house in Miami known as a "bolita," (the numbers racket). There are numerous bolitas in the Miami area and not surprisingly, Ben "the Butcher" Diamond (Golden Globe(R) nominee for Best Supporting Actor, Danny Huston) is getting a cut from the illicit. »
