INTERVIEW: Jimmy Smits talks ‘Cane’


Jimmy Smits has starred in some of television’s most acclaimed series from L.A. Law to NYPD Blue to The West Wing. Previously to be found in supporting-actor roles, Smits takes center stage in Cane, a new drama from CBS Paramount Network Television. In the series, which Smits is also co-executive-producing, he plays Alex Vega, the adopted son of an affluent Cuban American family that runs a sugar-and-rum empire in Florida.

With a cast that includes Hector Elizondo as Pancho, the ailing family patriarch who chooses Alex as his heir over his biological sons; Rita Moreno as Pancho’s wife Amalia and Nestor Carbonell as Alex’s resentful brother Frank, the series has the weight of CBS’s marketing machine behind it. Smits talks to World Screen about his hopes for the show.
