A long-running comedy series is adding some star power to its cast as the show heads into its ninth season. Variety reports that Katey Sagal and Courteney Cox are joining Showtime’s “Shameless.”

“Sagal is set to recur on the Showtime comedy as Ingrid Jones, a crazed psych patient that Frank (William H. Macy) encounters in the E.R., and with whom he is immediately smitten,” Variety reports. “Cox will guest star as Jen Wagner, a famous actress who’s had a problem in the past with booze. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) is hired as her sober companion when she’s in town, and she takes him on a wild ride in search of a cocktail.”

Sagal has had high-profile roles as as Peg Bundy on Fox’s “Married With Children” and Gemma Teller Morrow on “Sons of Anarchy,” while Cox is best known for her role as Monica Geller on NBC’s “Friends.”
