There’s a little shame(less)in Luis Guzmán’s game…
The 62-year-old Puerto Rican actor has landed a recurring role in the upcoming ninth season of Showtime’s Shameless.
In Season 9, political fervor hits the South Side and the Gallaghers take justice into their own hands. A few highlights: Frank (William H. Macy) sees financial opportunity in campaigning and decides to give voice to the underrepresented South Side working man. Fiona (Emmy Rossum) tries to build on her success with her apartment building and takes an expensive gamble hoping to catapult herself into the upper echelon. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) distracts himself from the challenges of sobriety by taking in Eddie’s niece, Xan (Amirah Johnson). Ian (Cameron Monaghan) faces the consequences of his crimes as the Gay Jesus movement takes a destructive turn.
Guzmán will portray Mikey O’Shea. Frank (Macy) meets his match in 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.
Guzmán’s recent television credits include Code Black, Roadies and Narcos. He’ll next be seen on the big screen in The Padre, set for release next month.
