Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays the Miami Jewish hotel mogul Isaac “Ike” Evans in STARZ’s “Magic City,” set in 1959, recalled scenes in which his character encounters genteel and not-so-genteel anti-Semitism. One takes place at a club that does not normally admit Jews, where his former sister-in-law has insisted they meet on her “turf.” “It’s very white and upper class, and the waiter won’t even acknowledge me,” Morgan (“Grey’s Anatomy”) said in an interview not long before the show’s April 6 premiere. “And I ask her when the ‘Jew hunt’ will begin.”
