Movie star James Caan has taken his young kids back to Las Vegas, Nevada, years after he vowed he'd never return to Sin City.

The 63-year-old actor spent his single years in Vegas hanging out with Frank Sinatra and THE RAT PACK in the 1960s and 1970s, but he gave up on the city after losing far too much money.

But now he's starring in a new TV series all about Sin City, called simply LAS VEGAS, he felt the time was right to return to the desert.

He says, "It still has a warm place in my heart. I used to go in a $30,000 (GBP18,750) car and come home in an $800 (GBP500) bus."
