Shameless Tate Ellington

Shameless Books Quantico Alum for Multi-Episode Arc in Season 7

Tate Ellington is being rewarded for his Quantico sacrifice. With pies.

That actor has landed a multi-episode role on Season 7 of Shameless as Chad, an employee of the company that owns Patsy’s Pies, TVLine has learned.

The prepster will try to convince Fiona to stay on as the diner’s manager.

Ellington — whose Quantico character, Simon, drove a nuke into a river so that no one else would have to die in the season finale — broke the news of his casting on Instagram.

Back at it! First day on @shameless

    Please for the love of everything that’s good, do not let him be a new love interest for Fiona!!! Let’s go the unconventional route and let the girl be on her own… She’s more than capable and I would love to see it.

    Sad about Tate Ellington’s character Simon Asher who made the ultimate sacrifice in the season finale of Quantico. Happy about his new TV gig in Shameless.

    Calling it, f***ing Fiona by midseason. Here we go again…

    Quantico is a soap opera, so as far as I’m concerned, Simon will be back eventually.

    So Dermont is out?

  6. Fantastic news. I loved him on Quantico and I’m glad I get to see him again on Shameless.
