Magic City - Season 2 - Jeffrey Dean Morgan Interview

Last time we saw Ike, he was in jail for murder, with State Attorney Jack Klein (Matt Ross) determined to throw away the key. Where does the beginning of Season 2 find him? I'm guessing the whole season isn't set with Ike in jail ...
[Laughs.] No, no -- we have to get Ike out of jail or I don’t know, the show will turn into “Oz.” So he gets out rather quickly ... because he needs to get to the business at hand .. This season, it’s all about getting Ben Diamond out of his hotel and ending that partnership by whatever means necessary.

He started pushing those pieces into place by partnering with his ex-sister-in-law Meg (Kelly Lynch) last season. Does she have a bigger part to play this year because of that deal?
Meg is now a very minority owner in [the hotel] and she has a more substantial role in the show and certainly in Ike’s life this year, which is an interesting relationship in itself. That dynamic is a very interesting dynamic, especially if you’re looking at it from Vera’s [Olga Kurylenko] point of view. Some sparks will fly there, but ... I think what we established last year in Ike being this family man that’s trying to do good while running this business; this year, he falls behind on his family duties and it becomes this singular vision of getting rid of Ben Diamond. And along with Ben Diamond, now we’ve got Jimmy Caan playing Sy Berman. So Ike’s life gets very complicated and he goes much more to the dark side this year. I think he remains this guy that wants to do right, but he is definitely not walking that fine line that he did last year quite as well.

Right. He spent most of last season managing to avoid getting his hands dirty, and then he ruined it all by killing Jimmy Shoes (Arron Shiver) to protect Judi Silver (Elena Satine). Will we see Ike continuing to take matters into his own hands this season?
Yeah, I think he gets his hands dirtier. He has to start playing the game that these other guys are playing, [that] the mob is playing, in order to break out and get rid of this element in his life. The problem is, Ike is very adept at it. He’s a guy that is able to slip into that world and live there comfortably, which was kind of interesting, I thought. Last year, the audience didn’t know really what Ike was up to a lot of the time and this year, the audience will be in on Ike’s plan and his thought process a lot more, which is great because you’ll see that Ike is two moves ahead of these guys at all times -- which is not to say that he doesn’t have some super close calls, but you can see what he’s thinking, which adds a lot more to his character and being able to see what he’s up to instead of just having to guess.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
