Shameless US has added an Arrowverse and Firefly Lane star to its final season.

The Showtime series is currently airing its eleventh and final season, with filming on the farewell run resuming in September last year, following delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Deadline, Patrick Sabongui has now joined the cast in a recurring role.

The actor will play a slick city landlord called Martin, who has a run-in with Carl Gallagher (Ethan Cutkosky).

Sabongui has also appeared in 40 episodes of The Flash as David Singh, and as the same character in a number of Arrow episodes.

His casting follows the final Shameless season also adding Chelsea Alden to its cast.
