‘Shameless’ Star Jeremy Allen White Endured Burns, Cuts on ‘The Bear’ – Had a ‘Nonexistent’ Interest in Cooking

Jeremy Allen White said the cuts and burns he endured while working on the FX’s Hulu series The Bear gave him a sense of authenticity in his portrayal of master chef Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto.

White, who notoriously played Phillip “Lip” Gallagher on Showtime’s enduring series Shameless probably knew how to boil a pot of water. But that was the extent of his cooking abilities or interest before he pursued the role of Carmy. Like any good actor, White wasn’t going to fake being a professional chef so he became a professional chef.
