'Shameless' Casts Possible New Competition for Lip Gallagher
It wouldn’t be Shameless if the series didn’t constantly throw challenges at the kids. The Showtime series has just cast a new neighborhood bad boy who’ll probably challenge Lip Gallagher’s (Jeremy Allen White) “friends with benefits” relationship with the damaged Karen (Laura Wiggins).
The motorcycle-riding Jody is described as “hot beyond belief,” and not exactly prone to winning over parents. Apparently, he won’t be chummy with Lip either, who confessed in Season 1 that he had feelings for Karen.
McGowan was born and raised in New York City and he has appeared on several TV shows, including ABC’s Body of Proof, Disney Channel’s Good Luck Charlie, and CBS’ CSI: Miami.
