Robert Urich almost didn't get the part of Dan Tanna. Even though his acting was perfect and he was one of the tallest and most muscular actors up for the part, producers thought that he looked way too young to play a man in his twenties as his boyish behavior and looks made him look like a young boy.

This had to be one of the coolest shows on television. The thing that really made it great was the pacing of the show and its mix of the old Las Vegas and what Vegas was becoming. The other thing that made this show what it was were the numerous cameos of some of the brightest stars that would appear in Vegas on a regular basis such as Dean Martin, Wayne Newton and other members of the Vegas elite. However, all the glitz and glamour would never have mattered if it wasn't for the late great Robert Urich who made this role his own.
