Shameless – Showtime

The family dramedy Shameless has been an absolute revelation for Showtime since it’s debut in 2011. With multiple Emmy nominations and a large and enthusiastic fanbase, this one of kind series has become one of the most respected productions on television today and now it is gearing up for it’s next highly anticipated season. Casting calls for several roles in Shameless will be taking place soon and performers of all ages can submit themselves today for available roles in what promises to be the most entertaining season yet.

Shameless follows the trials and hilarious tribulations of the unforgettable and unapologetic Gallagher family.

This series delights millions of viewers each week with it’s whipsmart humor and equally unforgettable pathos that sets it apart from any family series that has ever come before it. Shameless is produced by TV legend John Wells (ER, The West Wing, Mildred Pierce) and British auteur Paul Abbott (State of Play, Cracker, Hit & Miss) and is based on the original Shameless that airs on Channel 4 in the UK. In addition to these two titans of television as showrunners the production also boasts one of the strongest casts on TV that includes the talents of Academy Award nominee William H. Macy (Fargo, The Lincoln Lawyer, Jurassic Park III), Golden Globe nominee Emmy Rossum (The Phantom of the Opera, Beautiful Creatures, Poseidon), Justin Chatwin (War of the Worlds, Weeds, Josie and the Pussycats), Steve Howey (Reba, Sons of Anarchy, Bride Wars) and two time Oscar nominee Joan Cusack (Broadcast News, Toy Story 3, The School of Rock).

    Inviting and open, sensual personality. Shameless represents voices often unheard and documents the trials and teibulations that can come from being in an oppressive situation. The execution and deliverance provide comical relief while still discussing and somber topic. I deeply respect the artistry that goes into each subtle portion of the show, and admire the ability of the actors, director, writers, and production to steadily drive plot while introcately incorporating truths. I feel I’d be a great addition to the cast. It would be a humbling experience frought with learning, and I could bring an interesting, different dynamic to the show with whatever direction I’m pointed in. It’d be an honor to join the cast!

  21. Alan Pinto

    The reason I love acting is because you can be absolutely anything you want, at any given time. Just like we were made to believe when we were kids. Acting is a gateway of self expression as well as a path that leads down the journey of discovery. To act is to remind yourself that the world is yours, and you can do or be anything you want. And once you remember that, you cease to be an actor, and you become a performer. No longer acting as someone you’re not, but performing someone you could be.

    My name is Alan. Latin Chicago Resident born and raised in Brasil. Multilingual, eager and passionate. Average build, 6ft, hazel brown eyes, and brown hair with a small mixture of blonde in it. Always sporting a 5 o clock shadow or beard.

    Please contact me at your earliest convenience.

    Relate to shameless like it was my own family. Lived in Chicago and to this day visit often to family and friends that still reside. But what is the real kick is that so many situations remind me of my family and friends growing up can totally relate. Would love to get a chance to be part of this craziness that is part of me.

  33. Alexandr J Milbrandt

    Hay I’m a 23 yeard old male 6 foot average fit long hair to shoulders blue eyes blonde

  34. priss

    I know im a bit late to the party but i recently got turned onto the show. I watched the show and immediately assumed the demo was people who might think “oh wow, thats how the other half live”…but I personally related and bonded with the characters. Through my ~”interesting”~ past as people like to call it. I try to distance myself from the repertoire my town has.

    although my background is in standup comedy and i dont have formal acting training i know i could be an asset. i lived through foster care/ been on my own since 15 put myself through college etc.

    That being said, I love the dark realistic humor ive seen on the show and how it portrays people as they are not trying to show a happy go lucky getting out of the bad situation because lets be honest…that’s not always what happens…I as a kid volunteered with the boys and girls club cause i love kids etc..

    anyway, i believe i could contribute to this cast because i not only have real life experience in the subject matter and situations but this show really speaks to me and where i come from.


  35. Miral Gath

    If i was to act in any movies or show it would have to be shameless i know i could play the part so well not only can i really relate to the charters so it will make acting much easier. This show makes me so happy so being able to be in the shameless family is a dream come true.
