“Shameless” is coming back with a new season!
The twisted and yes, shameless original series from Showtime is filming back in the Chicago area again and is in need of background actors in various age groups. The series is also looking for pre-teens and teens to work on an upcoming episode. They are also in need of some stand-ins.
The show’s casting directors have released a casting call for their immediate needs on the new episodes as well as set up a casting form for more general roles that will be coming up. The series does film in the Chicago area, so please only submit to be an extra if you live in or around Chicago, Illinois.
“Shameless” Season 5 will be adding some cast members. According to THR, Dermot Mulroney (Crisis) will be joining the cast for season 5. Dermot Mulroney plays a recovering addict by the name of Sean Pierce. Sean will be Fionas new manager and there is rumor that we may see some heat between the 2. Fiona got a job in the previous season and we will finally get to meet the new boss. Mulroney will be replacing Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who left the show last season. Supposedly, Mulroney will be a series regular and a major character in the show.
