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).

  12. Jessica

    My unmeasurable respect for the layout and unique down to earth script of shameless and its creators , along with my desire to put use to any talent and easily dispersed personality i have, the ability to utilize any enfluence i have afterward to give back and lastly to show every person since i was 10 , that i had little to no chance to be an actress – including my father at 10 after wishing on a star to be an actress he said “ sorry dolly but u have to find something else like raising cows to do bc u have more chance at catching a star than being a star” i have to show each and everyone and mostly myself that you catch those stars and make them wishes a reality …. for yourself ! And then use it for good ! For so many reasons I have zero doubt I can do more than accomplish my dream and go above and beyond any part asked . Im 5’8 dark blonde hair – sometimes light blonde , blue grey eyes, long legs , 125 lbs , my humor and ability to get people to laugh be social , lite , airy and yet ability to be serious on que , cry legitimately on que , raised cattle for 7 years , old school rural corn fed cattle girl living in iowa city now , have more people tell me i should write a book with all my crazy stories and experiences that no one could otherwise make up , if nothing else i should tell these stories to a script writter so that someone can write my story and bring it to life – it too would be more than entertaining – leaves no one wo a laugh and a dropped jaw !

    Hi my name is Caitlyn I’m 14 years old I have been acting for 2 years now but not professionally. My theatre teachers and other people have told me that I have a natural talent for the stage and I should keep perusing it and I used to be shy on stage but my theatre teacher instantly got me so comfortable with it and I love it. It has always been a dream of mine to become an actress after I saw my moms friend become an actor. His name is Joey Phillips and he has played in Ozark and a couple others but it was very inspiring to me to take my dream to the next level. Shameless is one of my all time favorites I think the show just has so much character to it. I would love to be on shameless because I just feel that It’s my destiny to be on my favorite show and actually become someone and have fun with it. Thank you for reading hope you enjoyed and have a great day!
