Early life[edit]

McGowan was born in New York City, to Vincent and Brenda McGowan. His older brothers are Doug and Matt McGowan,.[8] He is of Irish and Jewish descent.[9] Although they lived in New York City most of their lives, the McGowans traveled extensively due to Brenda's employment at United Airlines. Before attending Carleton College, McGowan attended Ethical Culture Fieldston School from kindergarten through senior year in high school, where he was the captain of the football and ice hockey teams and a member of the drama and theater societies.[10]

Career[edit]

In mid-2011, McGowan joined the cast of the Showtime dramedy Shameless, as Jody, first as a guest star (Season 2) and then as a series regular (Season 3).[11] Season two premiered January 8, 2012. He said that modeling for art students helped him for the role but now "nudity is just part of the job".[12]
