*Season two of the Starz original series “Magic City” will feature Miami rapper Rick Ross in a juicy role – literally.

The bawse will play “Butterball,” the proprietor of an illegal Cuban/American gambling house in Miami known as a “bolita,” (the numbers racket). There are numerous bolitas in the Miami area and not surprisingly, Ben “the Butcher” Diamond (Danny Huston) is getting a cut from the illicit operations.

Season two of “Magic City” returns in summer 2013.
