Calling all bearded hipsters, junkies and drunk naked guys!

Showtime’s “Shameless” is filming its eight season in Chicago and needs background actors, stand-ins and photo doubles, according to casting call posted online. The shoot date has yet to be determined, but the posting says shooting will happen between July 31 and Aug. 4 and will likely last one day.

If that “drunk naked man” role tickles your fancy, the posting cautions you must “be comfortable with full frontal on camera.”

Want to play the “urinating junkie?”

“You must be comfortable urinating or portraying that you are urinating in the scene,” the posting says. “Please DO NOT submit photos portraying this act.”

The series, starring William H. Macy as an alcoholic and often absentee father, revolves around the Gallagher family of Chicago. Frank (Macy) is a single dad to six kids who spends most of his time slamming shots, drinking Old Style and passing out on the bathroom floor, while his oldest daughter does most of the heavy lifting raising the motley crew of latchkey kids—though they often end up in their own juvenile misadventures.

The show’s episodes contain plots like kidnapping an elderly woman from a retirement community to collect social security, Frank running from roughnecks after he fails to help burn a car for insurance money, or convincing the school district the children are tended to by responsible parents by dressing a car thief in a suit to pass him off as a doting father.

Just like your life in Chicago, right?

The show can currently be streamed on Netflix, too.
