Biography


Persistently built up his resume with numerous fabulous performances both onscreen and onstage, William Hall Macy Jr. certainly has been more than just a fine thespian; he is probably one of the most outstanding actors Hollywood ever has. Although originally born in Miami, Florida by March 13, 1950, he instead spent most of his childhood in Georgia before followed his parents, Lois and William Hall Macy Sr., to settle in Cumberland, Maryland at the age of ten. Afterwards continued his study at the city's Allegany High School, the teen began growing a fondness for acting when he landed his first experience of performing in its stage production of “Camelot” yet he chose to pursue a degree in veterinary medicine at West Virginia's Bethany College after his graduation in 1968. However, the desire to act was really hard to resist so that he eventually transferred his study to Goddard College in Vermont two years later.

Fully flourished his acting aspirations there under the tutelage of playwright David Mamet, William then came up to a decision of becoming an actor and thus moved to Chicago with Mamet also writer Steven Schachter not long after he obtained his BA degree in 1971. Forming St. Nicholas Theater together a year later, the threesome worked hand in hand to make several theatrical features which were mostly written by Mamet and performed by William for the company, such as that of “American Buffalo” or “The Water Engine.” For the rest of 1970s, the actor tirelessly kept performing onstage until he made his way to land his screen debut in the 1978 NBC miniseries "The Awakening Land" and another of film production in "Somewhere in Time" (1980). Other roles soon followed, like in “Without a Trace” (1983), “The Last Dragon” (1985), “House of Games” (1987), and “Things Change” (1988).
