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).

    Acting is a dream of mine- not just the small gigs that I get here and there already- but to actually be able to make a living off of it. Shameless is my favorite show, and it would be amazing to have the opportunity to be a part of the cast! Even if it’s just as an extra…

  2. Kayla Vollkommer

    I am Kayla. I absolutely love the business of acting. I also absolutely love the show Shameless, it stands out among most tv series I’ve seen because it actually shows some daily struggles people face in reality. My life can relate to the show in a way and would mean the world to me if I got to play a role on Shameless. I am 13 years old, 5’3 with dirty blonde hair and blue green eyes. Please get in touch with me if any roles open up that I can possibly play. Thank you!!

    Shamless is one of my favorite shows. I have work in an administrative for 12 and was a stay home mother
    For 13 years. Now that my kids
    Are out of high school I want to make a complete change in my life starting with my career. I know acting is hard work but I want to do some I love and will enjoy now that it’s only me. Hope to hear from you

  21. Joyce Williams

    Hey, my name is Joyce, I’m about to be 15, and I feel like I would be a pretty decent extra, or at least be able to participate in shameless in any way possible. 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.
