Las Vegas: Season 2, Episode 18
To Protect and Serve Manicotti
'Fear' is definitely a factor in Vegas; Sylvester Stallone and Joe Rogan guest star -- When a local restaurateur (and mother of a Montecito
showgirl) is approached by petty mobsters, Ed (James Caan) enlists the support of a longtime
friend, Frank the Repairman (guest star Sylvester Stallone, NBC's "The Contender"
and "Rocky"), to quash their extortion attempts. As the two navigate their way through
the local mob's hierarchy, Ed discovers that he has a multi-decade-old connection to the
ringleader. Elsewhere, Danny (Josh Duhamel) and Mike (James Lesure) feverishly work
to reclaim $100,000 stolen from the casino by a cunning thief. Once the thief's identity is
revealed, Danny concocts a clever scheme to make good on the money before Ed
discovers the truth. Meanwhile, Joe Rogan (as himself, NBC's "Fear Factor") visits the
casino in search of a little R & R. Sam (Vanessa Marcil), Delinda (Molly Sims) and
Nessa (Holt) who are desperate to be contestants on Joe's show, compete with each other
for his attention. Nikki Cox also stars.
