Dermot Mulroney was a big name thanks to films like “My Best Friend’s Wedding” and “The Wedding Date”. He also starred in Christopher Cain’s Western “Young Guns”. The actor has achieved some critical success, decorating his cabinets with awards such as Best Actor in “Samantha” at the Seattle International Film Festival.
Lovers of the show “Friends”, would also remember him as Gavin, who nearly has a fling with Rachel. Interestingly, Mulroney is quite the cellist. During the 1990s, he was part of a band called Low and Sweet Orchestra. His musical talents help him to land musical roles, if you remember him from “The Thing Called Love” starring River Phoenix.Michael Patrick McGill (aka Tommy)
“Shameless” may have helped Michael Patrick McGill to obtain more acting recognition, but this actor has had a long career as a professional actor. People in the soap circles might know McGill from his roles in the soap operas “Days of Our Lives” and “Passions”.
Yet this actor has had numerous guest appearances on both TV and in movies. In fact, he has had so many small roles in different tv shows, that if you name three random shows from the year 2001 onwards, odds are, he worked on it. This Wisconsin-born actor continues to add to his acting credentials but “Shameless” remains one of his biggest roles. Michael Patrick and Amy McGill married in 2012.Sean Price
Once owner of Patsy Pies, he and Fiona Gallagher flirt at work almost as a sport. It is clear the two are falling for each other in Season 5. Working at Patsy Pies is not the only thing they have in common but a past with substance dependency and subsequent rehabilitation.
In the case of Sean, he is recovering from some heavy stuff. His dependency caused him to lose his son and other heinous actions. By the time we meet him, he seems to be trying to make a clean start with Fiona. The two get married, but soon Sean relapses.Monica Gallagher
As Frank Gallagher’s estranged wife and the mostly absent mother of the Gallagher brood, Monica Gallagher frequently reenters the lives of her former husband and children. Obviously, her report with the family, as well as with the audience, is not the best. Frank first introduces Monica as a psycho.
He is not wrong, because she did abandon her family, but her tempestuous behavior may be the result of substance abuse and struggling with bipolar disorder. Through the seasons, Monica slowly tries to rebuild her relationship with her kids. She fails plenty along the way but in her own way, she succeeds.Chloe Webb (aka Monica Gallagher)
