Macy’s Film Parade

If you haven’t seen any movies with William H. Macy, then shame on you. The actor shines in dark, macabre roles, but is a riot on screen when he plays the light-hearted funny man. Here’s the actor’s take on his most noteworthy roles.

In regards to his upcoming projects, Macy is moving into directing. In 2014, he directed Rudderless, (Billy Crudup and Anton Yelchin), and is working on his second film, The Layover (Kate Upton and Alexandra Daddario).

“It’s a chick flick. It’s comedy and it’s pretty funny,” said Macy of the film. “God willing, in March, I’m starting a film called Crystal in Georgia. It’s a farce, another comedy.”

Shameless (2011—) “Frank is funny and pretty smart and he knows people. He’s not going to succumb to social norms because he’s supposed to,” said Macy of Frank Gallagher, the fun-loving, drunk father of six children, who knows how to live life to the fullest on the South Side of Chicago.
