If the Shameless cast wants to do another musical holiday card like this 2011 R-rated Christmas carol, they have a major reinforcement in the singing department. Steve Kazee, a Tony winner for the Broadway production of Once, is joining the cast of the Showtime dramedy in a major recurring role. He will play a rock musician in an existing band who will interact with Fiona (Emmy Rossum) and her family at the new diner where she has found new employment. Kazee’s Broadway credits also include In the Shade and Spamalot. On TV, he co-starred in the ABC drama pilot Warriors this past season. Repped by Innovative and D2 Management.
