Harry Hamlin will play a possible love
interest for Cameron Monaghan in the second season of cabler
According to Pop
Confidential, the 60-year-old Hamlin will play Ned, a new
“friend” of Ian Gallagher (played by Cameron Monaghan), in at
least 2 episodes.
Hamlin played gay opposite Michael
Ontkean in the 1982 feature film Making Love. He's best know
for playing attorney Michael Kuzak in the long-running NBC series
Shameless is based on the award-winning
British series of the same name broadcast on Channel 4 and stars
Emmy-winning William H. Macy as a single father of six children
living in Chicago. Macy's Frank Gallagher spends his days drunk,
leaving his kids to fend for themselves.
Monaghan's gay teen character has been
described in the media as the “anti-Kurt Hummel,” because he's
the opposite of a gay stereotype.
“He never does anything that's
stereotypically perceived as 'gay,'” Monaghan said of his
character. “He's tough, he's street smart, and he's pretty much
unlike any teenager on television right now.”
The second season of Shameless
premieres on Sunday, January 8.
