New Season of “Shameless” Now Casting in Chicago


Get cast in a small role on Showtime’s ‘Shameless

The new season of Showtime’s  comedy “Shameless” is now in filming in the Chicago area locals have a chance to join in the ‘Shameless’ craziness as paid background actors of the hit show. Chicago’s 4 star Casting is seeking background actors, stand-ins and photo doubles.

Shameless‘ focuses on the very dysfunctional Gallagher family.  Oscar-nominated actor William H. Macy stars as Frank Gallagher, a single father of six who spends much of his free time drinking at bars. The Gallagher children — led by oldest daughter Fiona (Emmy Rossum), who takes on much of the child-rearing responsibility due to her mother’s absence — manage to raise themselves in spite of Frank’s lack of parenting and unusual parenting style when he does choose to act like a father. The drama is an adaptation of the BAFTA Award-winning British show of the same name.

Shameless‘  is executive produced by John Wells, Andrew Stearn, Nancy M. Pimental, Davey Holmes, Christopher Chulack, Krista Vernoff and producer Michael Hissrich.
