Red Rock and Crossing Lines alum Richard Flood is set to recur opposite William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum in the upcoming eighth season of Showtime’s hit series Shameless.

As season seven of Shameless came to a close, the Gallaghers dealt with the loss of one of their own, and grappled with mixed feelings about their grief. Fiona (Rossum) had to once again care for Frank (Macy) in his time of need, while Frank had a new scheme in mind.

Flood will play Ford, a graduate of Yale School of Architecture, sometime freelance war photographer, ex-seminarian and enigma. He’s searching for a simpler life and Fiona (Rossum) never makes anything simple.

Could Flood play Fiona’s love interest in season 8? With Fiona’s “Fuck. Swipe. Leave.” attitude from season 7, could this possibly be who she ends up with instead of Sean?

Looks like season 8 will find Frank trying to make amends of some sort.
