Trivia

Unusual for a TV-show, creator John Wells has a very strict policy of no scripts allowed on set. The actors have to know their lines by heart.
Despite being in almost every episode since season one, Joan Cusack is still listed as a "special guest star" in the opening credits.
Woody Harrelson was originally set to star, back when the show was to air on NBC, then HBO, and then Showtime, before dropping out after the success of Zombieland (2009).
Steve Howey, who plays Kev, spent the entire season three recovering from a torn Achilles' tendon.
During the show's third season Emmy Rossum had the show's script writers give Justin Chatwin a fake scene in which he told his father he was gay. The crew members revealed it was a prank on camera.
Besides playing the leading role of Frank Gallagher, William H. Macy also portrayed Frank Gallagher's brother, Jerry.
Allison Janney played Sheila Jackson on the original pilot, but when the producers decided to expand the role, Janney had to drop out because she was a full-time regular on Mr. Sunshine (2011), so Joan Cusack was cast.
Though in episode 1x03 ("Aunt Ginger") Mickey tells Lip his mother is picking up a family member from Juvie, in later episodes there is no mention of the Milkovich's mom other than Ian telling Mandy Milkovich she's lucky her mom is dead.
Cameron Monaghan (Ian), Ethan Cutkosky (Carl), Jeremy Allen White (Lip), Emma Greenwell (Mandy) and Noel Fisher (Mickey) all guest-starred on Law & Order: SVU.
A unique presenting trademark is a main characters' breaking the fourth wall at episode beginnings, inquiring as to why the viewer supposedly did not view the previous episode before recap flashbacks with unaired scenes.
Even though it was established that Veronica was almost barren, she actually got pregnant on season 4 because Shanola Hampton got pregnant.
