Tony Award-winning Once star Steve Kazee will join the cast of Showtime's "Shameless," according to Deadline.com.
The actor has been cast in the recurring role of a rock musician who becomes associated with the character of Fiona, played by Emmy Rossum.
Kazee created the character of lovelorn musician "Guy" in the original Off-Broadway and Broadway productions of Once – a role that garnered him the 2012 Tony Award for Best Actor. He departed the Broadway production in March 2013.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
