Exclusive: Zach McGowan Joins Shameless as New Bad Boy — and [Spoiler Alert]?

Looks like Shameless‘ Lip Gallagher is getting some new competition: Zach McGowan is joining the hit Showtime series in Season 2 as Karen’s new “friend” Jody, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Jody is described as “hot beyond belief” and the type of guy “all parents hate,” and not just because he rides a motorcycle.

But we’re betting Karen’s parental units won’t be the only ones hating on the guy. In last season’s finale, Lip told Karen (a.k.a. his on and off “friend”) that he didn’t love her, but confessed to his brother Ian that he does have feelings for her. Could Jody’s entrance as “the quiet and mysterious type that all girls” — including Karen? — “fall for at least once in their life” suggest trouble ahead?

The New York-born McGowan, whose credits include guest stints on Body of Proof, Cold Case and CSI: Miami, will recur throughout Season 2.
