Shameless Barry Sloane

TVLine Items: Revenge Alum Gets Shameless, Legion Premiere and More

The Revenge vet will guest-star during Season 7 of the Showtime series as Ryan, an entrepreneur who meets Fi at a Southside Young Professionals networking event, per The Hollywood Reporter.

There’s no word yet on whether Ryan will romance the eldest Gallagher child during his two-episode stint, but we wouldn’t bet against Sloane’s charms.
