Sasha Alexander has landed a major multi-episode guest-starring role on Shameless’ upcoming fifth season, EW has learned.
Shameless‘ Emmy Rossum, The Middle‘s Eden Sher, and Modern Family guest star Elizabeth Banks are the reigning queens of comedy—at least according to EWwy voters, who’ve crowned them best actress, best supporting actress, and best guest actress, respectively, in our 7th Annual EWwy Awards for the Emmy-snubbed. All three phoned in to EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) on Aug. 18, when the winners were announced live. Listen to their full interviews below.
In her clip, Rossum hatches plans to taunt Broad City‘s Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson—fellow best actress nominees who are now too hot to write a movie for her—and to place her golden ewe statue on the back of the toilet in her guest bathroom so people can see it. In addition to looking ahead to season 5, she details the lengths to which Showtime went to keep the return of Justin Chatwin in Shameless‘ season 4 finale a secret from even her. “I had been campaigning for the last few seasons for him to come back. I didn’t feel like the story was properly tied up. I didn’t see the episode before it aired, and I was on a road trip, and my phone started blowing up, and my mom calls me, and she’s like, ‘He’s alive!'” Rossum says. “I was like, ‘What are you talking about? I’m somewhere in Arizona.’ She’s like, ‘He’s in the show!’ I had no idea what she was talking about. They had flown Justin Chatwin to Chicago, put him in a different hotel, put him with a different crew, different hair and makeup team, and done this whole thing covert. And then the president of the network sent me an email Sunday night like, ‘Gotcha!'” READ FULL STORY
Shameless is changing teams. The Showtime series will compete as a comedy in this year’s Emmy Awards after being submitted as a drama the past three seasons.
Shameless has typically been described as a dramedy and has received three Emmy noms for actors on the show (though not for its star, William H. Macy). The move follows a similar decision made by Netflix, which originally intended to submit the freshman season of Orange is the New Black as a drama series, then last fall decided to submit it as a comedy instead.
Last year the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences nominated ABC’s Modern Family — which won — along with FX’s Louie, HBO’s Girls, CBS’ Big Bang Theory, NBC’s 30 Rock and HBO’s Veep. Of those, 30 Rock is not eligible this year having concluded last season. That potentially opens up at least one slot, though Fox freshman comedy and Golden Globe winner Brooklyn Nine-Nine could also be a contender.
While on the drama side, competition is fierce. The final seasons of AMC’s Breaking Bad (whose final eight episodes from last summer are eligible) and Mad Men (whose upcoming first half of its final season is eligible) are going to be tough to beat, plus there’s HBO’s chronic bridesmaid Game of Thrones, along with Showtime’s Homeland and others to worry about.
Shameless fans, you decide: Is this show a comedy or a drama?
After Fiona (Emmy Rossum) proved she wasn’t exactly the best guardian on the planet — one of the kids got into her cocaine stash during Sunday’s episode — she was escorted to jail, so it looks like she can kiss her cushy office job goodbye. The good news, however, is that there will be a handsome face welcoming her to her new job at a diner.
Denny Duquette Jeffrey Dean Morgan! EW has learned exclusively that Morgan will guest star in the show’s season 4 finale as Charlie, the manager of the diner, a.k.a. Fiona’s new boss (with dimples that are to die for). This is Shameless we’re talking about, though, so don’t hold your breath for a happy ending.
Shameless airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on Showtime. Morgan’s appearance in the finale is set for Sunday, April 6.
For three seasons, Emmy Rossum has led the wild herd that is the Gallagher family on Showtime’s bold, often jaw-dropping dramedy Shameless. Eldest sister Fiona ended last year with a cushy office job, but Rossum suggests that the character might not be long for the corporate world.
As the show gears up for its fourth season premiere on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET, the tight-knit Gallaghers have found themselves at a surprising crossroads. EW chatted with Rossum to find out what’s in store for the most hard-headed of the bunch.

Bradley Whitford has signed on to guest star on the third season of Shameless.
The West Wing alum will appear in two episodes of the upcoming season playing Abraham — a “powerful, well-dressed, sophisticated gay man who is a political activist.” Let’s hope he takes his cues from White House Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman and not his shady Cabin in the Woods character.
In addition to starring in The West Wing and The Cabin in the Woods, Whitford has also appeared in The Good Guys, The X Files and ER.
Shameless stars William H. Macy, Emmy Rossum and Justin Chatwin. The Showtime series will return for season 3 on January 13, 2013 at 9 p.m.
