TV Fact #376 – November 3rd, 2015:

The show “Vegas” (2012-2013) features the lead character of Ralph Lamb, portrayed by actor Dennis Quaid, who is actually based on real life Sheriff Ralph Lamb, age 85 as of the September 2012 premiere date of the show, who served in that office from 1961-1979, and who was also a consultant on the series. It gets even better. When Quaid first met the real-life Sheriff Ralph Lamb he was set to portray in the TV series, both men took an instant liking to each other and learned that they both shared the same birth-date and shoe size. Because of this, Quaid was able to wear Lamb’s actual boots for the portrayal of his character. Quaid was literally walking in Lamb’s shoes.
