Keanu Reeves’s Neo in sci-fi ac­tion tril­ogy The Ma­trix from 1999 to 2007.

Moss may not miss ac­tion roles, but she does miss Aus­tralia.

‘‘I loved liv­ing there. Some­times I still wish I lived there, that I could spend ev­ery Christ­mas at By­ron Bay. I’ve al­ready got a plan mapped out in my head. When the kids are lit­tle older, I’ll bring them for a hol­i­day. I’ll take them to all the places that I loved.’’

Moss plays dis­trict at­tor­ney Katherine O’Connell in Ve­gas.

‘‘She’s an un­usual char­ac­ter, (be­ing) a dis­trict at­tor­ney in the 1960s (was) for a woman then prac­ti­cally un­heard of. She has been to the city and back to the town where she grew up to take the job of DA. She’s as com­fort­able rid­ing a horse as she is talk­ing to the men about work and pol­i­tics.’’

Ve­gas is based on the re­al­life ad­ven­tures of Ralph Lamb, a rancher and rodeo rider who was sher­iff from 1961 to 1979.

Den­nis Quaid plays Lamb, an old-school law­man who broke the noses of wannabe mob­sters and once ar­rested 74 Hell’s An­gels and gave them hair­cuts af­ter dis­man­tling their mo­tor­cy­cles.

Quaid and Michael Chik­lis ( The Shield), who plays casino boss Vin­cent Savino, are ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ers along­side creators Ni­cholas Pi­leggi ( Goodfel­las) and Greg Walker ( With­out A Trace).
