Shameless” – the twisted and yes, shameless original series from Showtime is filming back in the Chicago area.  According to THR, the show has cast Dermot Mulroney(Crisis) in the new season
Dermot Mulroney will play a recovering addict named Sean Pierce. Sean becomes Fiona’s new manager and the tension will grow when their relationship gets a bit heated. In the last season, Fiona got a new job and now will get introduced to her boss. Guess we’ll have to wait and see how far their flirtations take them. Mulroney will be replacing Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who left the show last season. While this will be a new character on the series he will be replacing Morgan as one of the large male roles.

William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum will return as the poster kids for dysfunction. Macy plays Frank, a hard drinking single father who loves the bars and spending money the family doesn’t have. His 6 kids may be more responsible than he is and maybe even better off without him. The family makes no apologies for who they are but they definitely make for an interesting, funny and shameless TV show.
