Amy Smart Gets SHAMELESS

Amy Smart

Amy Smart (Crank, Smith) is about to get SHAMELESS. AOL TV Squad reports that the actress will appear in the last two episodes of the Showtime dramedy’s first season, playing Fiona’s (Emmy Rossum) new friend Jasmine.

The bulk of care-giving for the Gallagher family has fallen to Fiona, but she still finds time to have fun and Jasmine wants to join in. The two women know each other from the neighborhood and Jasmine has a daughter in the same class as Fiona’s sister Debbie (Emma Kenney), so when Fiona helps the moms decorate for a party, she and Jasmine become better acquainted. According to Showtime’s description of Jasmine, she “is a little bit pushy and sexy and is a little aggressive about wanting to be friends with Fiona.” Somehow I don’t see that sitting well with Fiona’s current best friend Veronica (Shanola Hampton).

What do you think? Is Amy Smart a good fit for Shameless?

Shameless airs on Showtime Sundays at 10pm eastern/9pm central.
