Shameless is ramping up for season five.

Singer-actress Annie Little has boarded the Showtime series for a multiepisode arc.

Little will play Elizabeth, sister to Bianca (Bojana Novakovic), who is a bit of a square and uptight. She will appear in at least two episodes.

Little is repped by Hervey/Grimes and McKeon-Myones. Her past credits include roles in Argo, Dexter, Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23, Southland and 90210.

Little and her husband, Marcus Ashley, comprise Los Angeles-based duo Little & Ashley. The pair recently signed a co-publishing deal with Razor & Tie and will release their first full-length album, Dreamy Happy Sexy, on Nov. 18. The duo, whose songs have been featured on national Amazon Kindle TV commercials, have booked a Hotel Cafe performance ahead of the album release on Nov. 6.

Watch the video for their song "Life Is Beautiful," which will be included on the forthcoming album, below.

Shameless, which welcomes Dermot Mulroney for a major, season-long arc, returns Jan. 11 on Showtime.
