“Mr. Las Vegas,” aka Wayne Newton, who entertains and lives in Las Vegas, had to wing to Los Angeles to film a guest stint — as himself — in NBC’s “Las Vegas.”
He appeared this week on the series’ fictional, yet realistic Montecito Hotel casino set, which we described to you in Culver City earlier this year. Wayne also worked in a Holmby Hills mansion, which was supposed to look like his own Vegas home.
Newton recently inked a new multi-year pact with Harrah’s, beginning Thanksgiving until New Year’s Eve. He was inducted into the Nevada/Entertainment Hall of Fame and University of Las Vegasand was presented the Sidney Award, named after Oscar-winning director Geogre Sidney and established at UNLV by Sidney’s widow, Corinne.
