Sighting: 'Shameless' cast (minus William H. Macy) parties at The Underground

The cast of “Shameless” — including Emmy Rossum, Jeremy Allen White, Harry Hamlin, Shanola Hampton, Steve Howey and Zach McGowan — partied Thursday at The Underground while in town filming the third season of the Showtime dramedy. Noticeably absent?

“Shameless” star William H. Macy.

“I can't keep up with them,” Macy, 62, said the following day while promoting his upcoming film — “The Sessions,” due out Oct. 26 — at The James Hotel. “These shoes (I'm wearing) are older than Jeremy. I don't go out much. … They'll meet for dinner at 9:30 at night. I've been asleep for an hour by that time.”

The cast ordered takeout from 25 Degrees in River North at the end of the five-day shoot Friday, which included filming in the North Lawndale neighborhood.

“During our Chicago shooting days,” Rossum wrote on her Facebook page Saturday, “we eat on the go (burgers or pizza) standing on street corners or sitting on the pavement between camera set-ups and we change costumes in the bathrooms of local churches and sometimes people's homes when they open their doors to us.

"It's the least glamorous filming situation I've ever been in and I love every minute of it.”
