Short for Phillip, Lip is the second Gallagher child and by far the smartest. He is attending a prestigious college on a full scholarship, an experience that has the potential to change his life. But being a Gallagher is a powerful thing, and the draw of the old neighborhood and need to make money during his first summer off are serious threats to his upward trajectory.
Jeremy Allen White is a rising star on the big and small screens, lending a balance of edginess and relatability to each new role.

Jeremy can also be seen in THE TIME BEING, opposite Wes Bentley and Frank Langella, in Antonio Campos' AFTERSCHOOL, alongside Ezra Miller, and in the comedy MOVIE 43, with Elizabeth Banks, Emma Stone, Kate Winslet, and Gerard Butler.
White recently wrapped the lead opposite Dakota Fanning in Gerardo Naranjo's English debut about life on the road with an 80's punk band.
White is also set to play the lead in the DreamWorks feature GLIMMER in 2015.
