Since Tony Soprano faded to black, we've been looking for a fresh antihero to take his place. That man just might be Cane's Alex Vega (Jimmy Smits), newly picked to run his adoptive father's South Florida rum and sugar empire. Soapy but not campy, Cane promises several juicy story lines worth squeezing, especially Alex's battle with a rival sugar-business family and its J.R. Ewing-like patriarch. Smits is just as charismatic when he's bonding with his Cuban-American clan as when he's viciously protecting them. He's already ordered the death of one foe and had a Cuban refugee who crossed him shipped home. Tony would be proud.
