A "Shameless" Evening with William H. Macy
At this summer's San Diego Comic-Con, I had the opportunity to moderate the panel for Showtime's dysfunctional family series "Shameless" -- and had a blast doing it.
Earlier this month, the Screen Actors Guild Foundation asked me to once again moderate a "Shameless" panel, again with star William H. Macy (and this time with Shanola Hampton and Steve Howey, who play the Gallaghers' neighbors). Macy told several stories, including of the moment that he first heard, as a struggling actor, that he had landed the coveted "Fargo" role that made him a star. Macy says his family likes his shaggy hair look -- grown out for his role as drunken patriarch Frank Gallagher.
