You probably remember this Californian actress from the comedies “Rat Race” or the sweet Beth “Road Trip”. The actress has also taken on more serious roles like as the ill-fated Kayleigh in “The Butterfly Effect” and Eve in action-thriller “Crank”, starring alongside Jason Statham.
More recently, she has had roles in Tyler Perry’s “The Single Mom’s Club” and the somber “Mississippi Requiem”. Interestingly, Amy Smart had her first steps in show business as a model in Italy before moving to Los Angeles and taking acting lessons. She has had a long career spanning more than 25 years. Smart is married to Carter Oosterhouse, and the two have a daughter together.
Anthony Alabi (aka Mavar)
This former American football player ended his football career and followed a new path in acting in 2010. Born in San Antonio, Alabi had much success with football. He made the NFL draft with the Miami Dolphins in 2005 and later went on to play for the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Playing something other than America's favorite sport, he decided to try his hand as an actor, and it seems to have paid off handsomely. His acting career is only taking off, but his most major role has been as Coach Spitz in “Raven’s Home”. He has also had appearances on “NCIS”, “Black-ish”, and “Modern Family”.
We meet one of the quirkier and lighter “Shameless” characters. Known for cooking naked, Jody Silverman is a tattoo artist who meets Karen Jackson at an Addicts Anonymous group. He forms a close relationship with her mother, Sheila Jackson, which becomes a little too close, in some viewers' opinion.
Despite his background and possibly intimidating appearance, Jody is a good guy through and through and he does the right thing by marrying Karen. The only bad thing about the character is we saw him too little as he only stuck around for Seasons 2 and 3. Well, that and the fact that he was somehow in a relationship with a woman as well as that woman's mother.
Zach McGowan (aka Jody Silverman)
Starting out as a model for art students, this bearded, long-haired, blue-eyed boy comes from New York. While Zach McGowan is known for his dazzling performance as the troubled Jody Silverman, he has achieved much success in the acting world, especially as a voice artist.
He has done voice-over work for the “Resident Evil” franchise’s latest “Operation Raccoon City” and the video game “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier”. Roles in the actor’s credentials include playing Roan in “The 100” and Charles Vane in “Black Sails”. The actor has been married since 2008 to Emily Johnson and they have four children.
Probably not the ideal friend for Fiona Gallagher, Jasmine Hollander is a former schoolmate of Fiona who probably harbors secret feelings for her friend. Jasmine is a mother of three and married to Hal. She and Fiona bond over their mutual share of harsh judgment from the community.
She is fun and free-spirited and loves partying – and loves Fiona too. Sadly, Jasmine loves partying a bit too much. Her free-spirited behavior becomes a bit too free-spirited and she soon finds herself on a downward spiral involving romantic partners as well as different substances she should have steered clear of.
