The Gallagher men have their eyes on some famous TV women.

Sons of Anarchy star Katey Sagal and Friends alum Courteney Cox are set to guest star on the upcoming ninth season of Shameless, EW has confirmed.

Sagal, who won a Golden Globe for her run as Gemma Teller on the FX biker drama, will recur on the Showtime series as Ingrid, a crazed pysch patient who catches Frank’s (William H. Macy) eye (the man has a type!). Meanwhile, Cox, making her most noteworthy TV appearance since Cougar Town wrapped in 2015, will guest star as a famous actress who hires fellow recovering alcoholic Lip (Jeremy Allen White) to be her sober companion during her time in Chicago.
