  • Well, The club is badly in need of new members to bolster the ranks…both of these guys could fit the profile. More nomad or Tacoma charter transfers, maybe?
    Then again they could also just be playing villains or just citizens of Charming.

    • Not a fan of reading, are you? The article states that Howell is playing an ATF agent.

    • YEAH, The MC does need some fresh faces………….. but i read somewhere that someone from the IRELAND charter might come down to charming and help out SAMCRO.
      LOVE S.O.A when is FX going to show a season 5 marathon?!!!!!!!!!!

    • SOA and Shameless air in different parts of the year, so I assume they’re filmed in different parts of the year, too. I really like both shows, and I see no reason for Jimmy to be written out of Shameless.

  • Looks like there’s a crooked ATF agent coming to Charming. Perfect role for C. Thomas I could see him playing that type of part very well. Don’t not sure he can out smart our guys though.

  • C. Thomas Howell was great on Southland and I’m still sad about the series’ cancellation. :-(

  • It was posted that Jimmy is dead on Shameless. I am excited to see how Howey did in on the show. I think Howell will be a great addition!

  • C . Thomas will be a great addition on SOA …he did a great job on Southland..He’s been around for a while and can play a good guy or bad guy…very talented actor…

  • My first celebrity crush was C Thomas Howell during his Pony Boy days, so I am ecstatic to see him emerging from the b-movie drivel he has done in the past. He was great in SouthLAnd!

    • LOL! Mine too! I had pictures of him and Ralph Macchio from Teen and Tiger Beat magazine (yes, I’m old!) plastered ALL over my bedroom. So glad I’m not the only one!

  • That’s wonderful!! Now they still need Michael Cudlitz, since that wonderful show Southland got canceled.

  • Glad to C. Thomas Howell on SOA – the guy can play a chilling villain (see: George “The Reaper” Foyet on Criminal Minds)!

  • and let’s face it they’ll both be killed ….violently and I won’t be able to sleep for six nights and then I’ll watch it again
