Shameless has some new company. Deadline reports Dan Lauria and Ashley Romans have joined season nine of the Showtime TV show.
The comedy-drama follows the ups and downs of a family living in Chicago’s gritty Southside neighborhood. The cast includes Emmy Rossum, William H. Macy, Jeremy Allen White, Cameron Monaghan, Emma Kenney, Shanola Hampton, and Steve Howey.
On Shameless, Lauria will play “Mo White, a disgraced ex-Congressman in his 60s with a John Edwards haircut. Frank (Macy) helps him run for office again” while Romans has been cast as Alex, a tough 30-something who “works at a construction site. Everyone thinks she is a man, but in fact she is a woman.”
