Shameless has some new company. Deadline reports Luis Guzman, Jess Gabor, and Bob Saget will star on season nine of the Showtime TV show.
The comedy-drama, which debuted its ninth season on September 9th, follows a family living on the South Side of Chicago. The cast also includes William H. Macy, Jeremy Allen White, Cameron Monaghan, Emma Kenney, Shanola Hampton, and Steve Howey.
On Shameless, Guzman will be playing Mikey O’Shea, “a fellow lush and contender in an ad campaign competition to find the new face of Hobo Loco, a cheap liquor aimed at fraternities and alcoholics.” Jess Gabor has been cast as “Kelly Keefe, the tough-as-nails daughter of an Army officer and West Point alumnus, who takes over the life of Carl (Ethan Cutkosky).”
And Saget will guest star on the Showtime series as “Father D’Amico, a priest Kev (Steve Howey) and V (Shanola Hampton) have to answer to when they run into show-and-tell trouble with the nuns at their twins’ local Catholic pre-school.”
