Felicity Huffman decided to live out her husband, William H. Macy's character on "Shameless," by paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older daughter's answers on the SAT. She considered taking the same shameless action for her younger daughter, but decided against it.
Macy has played a starring role in the series that depicts the poor, dysfunctional family of Frank Gallagher, a single father raising six children. He spends his days drunk or in search of misadventures, and his children learn to take care of themselves. Trouble is, in real life, Macy or his wife are not supposed to take actions that might land them in jail. That's for other people, who don't have a sense of shame.
