At the end of last season, Las Vegas fans were left hanging as to who would take control of the Montecito Hotel and Casino. Series creator Gary Scott Thompson has now confirmed that Boyle's "flamboyant" character will be the new owner, and he says that, "We're excited to have someone with the style and panache of Lara Flynn Boyle as we head into a season of transition for Las Vegas. She will add even more story potential and star power to what is already a super -charged cast playing against the backdrop of a dynamic city."
Boyle has not held a series- regular role since she left The Practice--for which she once earned an Emmy nomination--in 2003. She did appear in a few episodes of the Showtime drama Huff last season, and starred in the UPN pilot of Crazy this spring. Boyle's other credits include Wayne's World, Red Rock West, and Men in Black II.
