Shameless - Showtime

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 prickly Chicago brood is composed of alcoholic dad Frank, and his good hearted but scheming kids Phillip, Ian, Carl, Debbie, Liam and his put upon adult daughter Fiona who tries to keep them all together. 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).

I have a dark style, but it changes so much that at this point I don’t know what I’m even doing. I actually have no acting experience, but I saw this and thought, ‘what the hell, why not’, because this show really hits home with me and conveys feelings that I never knew I could feel about a TV series. I may not have too much experience, but I do have passion. Passion to learn, to grow, and to be involved in something that I love so personally like Shameless. Thank you for considering me as a possible candidate for Shameless.
