If you are a fan of the show Shameless, the Showtime drama that follows the dysfunctional family of a single father of six, Frank Gallagher, then you’ll be happy to know that the show will soon return for its second season. This unique drama highlights how Frank’s alcoholism directly effects his family, a family that lives right in the suburbs, a show that might normally be placed in a trailer park and a idea that John Wells had to fight. He wanted to help show the world that the reality is that these people don’t just live in crummy side of town, they can live just down the block from you.

The main cast of the show include William H. Macy as Frank Gallagher, Emmy Rossum as Fiona, the eldest of Frank’s children, Jeremy Allen White is Phillip “Lip” , Cameron Monaghan is Ian Gallagher, Emma Kenney plays Debbie & Ethan Cutkosky plays Carl the second youngest of the kids.

HBO originally began trying to develop the show from original British version of the show, but by Oct 2009 development of the show had moved to Showtime. Although the show is set in Chicago, very few scenes are actually shot outside LA. Only the exterior scenes are filmed in Chicago.

The show is currently finishing up production for the second season and casting for extras, photo doubles will be on going throughout filming. To become apart of Showtimes best performing first-year drama, be sure to include your physical stats, basic contact information and a recent photo.

  3. Hi My name is Calum I am fifteen and live in the United kingdom. It is a long shot but I am willing to do any role. I am a confident performer and am very ambitious. I have performed main roles in many school performances. I am willing to sing. I am young willing to learn and it is my dream to be apart of an amazing show like shameless. I have been told that I will be getting a distinction star in my drama GCSE. If you don’t ask me to come on shameless then I think that you will be missing out on a very talented performer. Thank you for your time.

  4. Hi! My name is Nikki. I am 20 years old. I grew up with a big family. I’ve always been interested in acting throughout my life, from writing my own scripts as a child, to being in plays, and so on. This would be such an amazing experience and opportunity to be a part Shameless! I look forward to hearing more about the cast call! I hope to hear back!

  5. Hello, My name is Colton, I’m from Des Moines, Iowa. There is nothing I love more than preforming, anything from preforming with a band to making a few friends laugh. I like to think I could be a great actor, although I haven’t been formally taught. I can become just about any character and make it real. There is nothing I wouldn’t do as far as preparing for or acting out a role

  6. I am a gorgeous passable transsexual goddesses with a quick wit and haughty comedic nature and I am shameless. Its high time that a tran sexual vixen graces the screen of a production that is worthy as this project.

  7. I am alexis salinas, age 20 weight :120, dark hair, brown eyes ,5’1 and pretty easy to get along with. I know i will do amazing on shameless because on shameless there are no perfect person or family, it shows the truth on how some peoples life are, and as for me life as been hard, so many rough edges and acting brings the emotional out of me, ive had experience with acting, I went to John Casablancas,and i am up for the job.

  8. Im Elizabeth I have been a die hard shameless fan since day one. Shameless sunday is like church for me i am 5’3 135 lbs red hair green eyes and a great figure!!

    To Whom it may concern,
    I should be considered to be an extra for one of my personal favorite shows, shameless, because I’m just a young man looking for a chance. I’ve recently done a commercial with a cable provider, and I’m also scheduled to be an extra for a show new show being aired on fox. I’m not saying I’m a better cantidate than any of the recent applicants, I’m just saying we all have something to bring to the table, I’m just hungrier. It would be a pleasure to be amongst such great performers and staff members. Nothing but great things can come from such an opportunity, and I’m hungry for the challenge.

    Thank you,
    Christian Carranza

I sent a pic and im only an email away amd would love to read for you guys. It would be so great to be considered

  20. If your looking for someone unforgettable then thats me. I’m not going to give you a bunch of BS about how I was born to do this sort of thing because who knows what I was was born to do until its done. All I know is I was put here to do some thing extraordinary only because I suck at all other things ordinary. I love film! I love movies and tv series that give it to you raw and real. Shameless was actually filmed in the house my father and his friend grew up in on the west side of Chicago and i thought that was amazing!!!! All I need is a shot to do something unforgettable and I’ll make sure you won’t forget me.

  25. My name is Nelly! I am 27 years old. I graduated in 2009 with a seemingly worthless degree in Communications. I am currently a server a Buffalo Wild Wings ( My job to get through college ). My dream has always been to be an actress or a news anchor. My family always told me to have a back up plan in case my dreams never came true. I went to college… now I am stuck as the Worlds’ Best Waitress. I need a back up plan for my back up plan!! I cannot find a career short of growing fat and old glued to a computer chair in an office with no windows. I refuse to give up on myself. I love making people laugh, working in teams, new challenges, painting, Starbucks, and being in a great mood no matter what! I am not afraid of failure and I am terrible at singing! I have what it takes, I just don’t know the right people to help me get what I want. I AM the girl next door with a dash of class clown.

    Maybe the show needs an older sister that no one knows about? Maybe her and Fiona start off hating each other because Fiona is use to being the one in charge. Just an idea. I could be anything!

  26. Dear Shameless,
    My name is Nicola but Nick is simply what I go by,
    I am a first generation Italian-American from just north of Chicago.
    I am 21 years old 6 foot, slim but toned body with dark facial features and long slick backed hair. I have performed in my school plays as leading roles and other appearances in high school such as talent show and stuff like that. I had a son almost exactly 2 years ago so I turned towards a stable life of construction in the good old city of Chicago. I was told to give this show a watch and I couldn’t believe how much I really felt like I could relate to this show. I’ve become inspired to reconnect with a beautiful skill of acting I once had and this show just calls to me.
    I really don’t know how to say this but you gotta have a least one “greaseball” in your show if your basing it in Chicago.
    I’m a exceptional learner, My acting comes from the heart and is very real and let me tell you I can relate to all the Gallagher’s and the situations in which there put through how extreme they may be. I’m willing to perform in any way, very open minded person. My attributes and skills are endless and I overcome any task thrown at me and can perfect many things with practice.
    Of course I’m asking for a shot. But there’s no doubt in my mind I can leave an impression.
    Thank you for your time.
    Any info needed about me feel free to contact me

    I really don’t know how to say this but you gotta have a least one “greaseball” in your show if your basing it in Chicago.
    I’m an avid learner, I truly feel when I act and let me tell you I can relate to all the Gallagher’s and the situations in which there put through, no matter how extreme they may be. I’m willing to perform in any way, very open minded person. I know I’m a photogenic, intelligent and a skillful person and I feel as if I could contribute to this show in some way.

  31. My name is Jessica Lowe. I am 17 and I live in New York. I am a major in acting in a performing arts school. I have been cast in leads for a few shows. I can email my résumé if needed. I am professionally trained and I have a good amount of experience.

    As for how I look, there is a head shot attached to my resume if needed. I’m brunette with light brown eyes. I am 5’6 and I weigh 160 pounds. I’m Caucasian. I’m willing to make changes in regard to my hair color, weight, and look.

    It would be a good experience to be cast in Shameless because I love the show, but also because I know what it’s like to be in a dysfunctional family. I think I can add to this series in some way. Thank you.

  32. Well my names Robert, I’m 18 I’m not going to sit hear and kiss your ass I’m new to acting but have gone to John Casablanca acting school in Beverly Hills and told I was fantastic so I stopped going cause yes I’m a cocky little shit. New to acting and would love to get my start on shameless cause come one that’s one of the best ******* show. This dramatic series is so good and would love to tell Hollywood yeah I got my start on shameless..

  33. I have just recently started watching Shameless, but I already LOVE it!!!
    HELLO,
    My name is Camryn Capizzi, form San Diego CA (but I would be willing and able to travel if needed),
    I am very recently 19 years old (as of February 16th, 2013), I am fair/light skinned caucasian female, with very curly fair blonde hair (I would be willing to temporarily straighten or dye my hair, even permanently dye it depending on the color), I have medium-big sized blue eyes (medium hue), I am 5’6″, 160 lbs, and have an apple-type body shape.

    I have always love to perform and have an extensive performance resume, but most of all I perform musically. I have a youtube channel with only one song as of now. I have worked and performed with The (Paul Green) School of Rock in Chatham NJ and Vista CA for 5 years as of graduation last year, and work and perform with the Chops Woodshed Academy in Solana Beach CA for 1 year, and play many-multiple instruments proficiently, including vocals.
    — – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
    Although I am very much into music, I have always loved to act and would consider it a major part of my career and life plan, and I am very good at it too, but unfortunately do not have as much experience performing as I would like to in that department. In a way, I think that makes my performances more raw, and in certain roles that can be a very good thing. I can bring an animal real-ness and emotional honesty that must be shown through someone who desperately wants something they know they have to work extremely hard to even get close to, and I desperately want this. I also have been told that I have great comedic timing. I would put my whole heart and soul into making people love my character, and if you choose me, I promise I will come at it with everything I have got.
    -Camryn Capizzi.

  34.

  35. Hello,
    My name is Gabby Guire and I am an aspiring actress. I am 14 years old and ever since I was little I knew acting was a part of me. I am a sort of rough and outgoing personality. Shameless is something I came across and told myself, ‘That sounds like a role I can play.’ I don’t act, I become. If Shameless is looking for a young, female, outgoing, rough person, I would be the one. I am willing and I am going to accomplish. Email me for pictures and information. I will be waiting. Thank you for reading, please consider.

  36. Hi, my name is Ofelia Romero and i’m 17 years old. I think I would be a great addition to Shameless. I am a very outgoing talented person and would be honored to have this opportunity. Please consider me! thank you!

  37. Hello, My name is Roger Padiernos. I am 16 and attend my local highschool presently. I’ve always been the kid that has been too social so to speak and have no problem being the center of attention. Like everyone else, I’m asking for that one chance.

  38. Thanks a bunch for sharing this with all of us you actually realize what you are speaking approximately! Bookmarked. Kindly also talk over with my web site =). We will have a link exchange agreement between us

  39. I would love to have an opportunity to be on this show because it’s such a good, raw, yet funny show. I would be a great addition to the cast.

  40. I’ve wanted to act since I was a kid but I never really had the opportunity to give it a go, being as I was always involved in football,baseball and track. I am 19 years old and the idea of acting had been out of my head for quite some time until I started watching Shameless. This is a show in which I can easily relate to and feel like I can bring something useful to the table. I have no previous acting experience, however I have been repeatedly told to pursue a career in acting simply because of the way I live my life. It is these instances that I feel have given me enough courage and willingness to see if anyone will take a chance with me. Also, Shameless is awesome.

  44. I would seriously give a hand and foot to be on shameless! My name is Daniel Crecca and I have been acting for quite sometime and I am in fucking love with this show. Please get back to me I am so ready to be apart of the shameless family! Thank you so much.

  45. I love how shameless can relate to most people including myself. I would love a chance for any audition. I am very passionate about acting and this show, my looks are very versatile. I am fun and very pleasant to work with.
    5’3

  46. I’ve always wanted to have a chance in acting and i realize that everyone says that when i start in this buisness but i love this show and i think that i could bring a new twist to the cast. Im from a small town in Montana and ive only been in my High School plays but i believe i have what it takes to become someone in acting and i just need someone to believe in me also. If you need anymore information or pictures dont hesitate to write thank you.

  47. I should be considered for Shameless because I’m new to acting but I’m 3yrs in the making for modeling i just recently started getting into acting when i hit Los Angeles,CA. I really want to get into acting outside of c=school, because i feel that i can succeed in it.I often like to be a funny goofy actress,i like jokes i like comedy and i like shows that have comedy in them.But i want to do some action things also.I feel acting will break me out of a shell that hasn’t been broken yet.And overall i like to have fun but at the same time get my work done and look at the results and say that my hard work has paid off.

  48. I have always wanted to become an actor since I was little. I recently got the courage to actually persue my dream and now I am doing it! I am a hard worker and will always get the JOB done! I am 20 years old and Mexican. I have a good sense a humor and very professional. I am a young guy just looking to be given a shot! All my friends say that I would be a great comedian! I KNOW I can bring a lot to the table. I have been through some tough times in my days and have been on both ends of the spectrum. I am just hoping someone out there will give me a chance.

  49. Hey there, my name is Cory. I was born on February 1, 1995. Ever since i was 7 I knew what I wanted to do with my life. Act. It scares me to think about that not happening, because I know that I would be great at it if I could only be given the chance to. I’m very outgoing, and easy to get along with, and I’m good at following directions. I go to a school for the performing arts, I’ve been in a few school productions that have helped me learn the art of acting. But the stage isnt enough for me. This is why I would be honored to be considered for a role in Shameless. If a picture is needed I can email one. I’m just an email away. Thank you.

    • I should be on shameless because I am not like these other desperate, profile forging incompetents. I have genuine humor and would be a perfect candidate for the new roll, “Phillip’s long lost brother.” I’m equally as intelligent as Phillip with an even drier sense of humor. Plus id be willing to become Karen’s husband because she is the epitome of perfection. Can’t wait to hear from you and be apart of the new cast of Shameless! I would hate to steal everyone else’s dream for being on the Shameless cast, but then again, if you aren’t first your last! At least you can view my success from your very own couch! – Love, Emanuel J. Kelly
