  • Finally, a show for James Wolk. I’ve been waiting for Georgetown, unfortunately it wasn’t picked up. I also loved the only two episodes of Lone Star.

  • I’m glad he’s going from one critically acclaimed show to another. And at least Shameless already has a fan base. I was one of the few people who watched Lone Star and it had a lot of promise.

  • Speaking of James Wolk…

    If anyone from FOX is reading this, could you PLEASE give us the rest of the “Lone Star” episodes, at least online?!

  • Thank god, the man is way too hot not to be on my tv screen. I loved Lone Star, and Shameless is one of my favorite shows. Hopefully he will stick around ultimately.

    • Right? AFAIC, they don’t need to spend much time on his wardrobe, unless they are dressing the floor.

  • Good. Love him and love Shameless. Seems like a good fit. But yeah, I hope Steve shows up at some point. His storyline wasn’t wraped up, we never found out who was the blonde chick that kissed him in his mother’s house.
