The physical look doesn’t matter. The all you need is the indomitable talents to achieve success anywhere. William H Macy has proved it right. Being one of the most versatile actors in Hollywood, he has a thriving acting career. Not only the career, but he also has a staggering net worth. Today, let’s learn all about him in details.
Born on March 13, 1950, in Miami, Florida to William H Macy Sr. and Lois Macy, William H Macy is an American actor who is well-known for his jaw-dropping acting in the film ‘Fargo’. His father is believed to a pilot who was killed in World War II. With the fact, you can assume how disordered his childhood would have been. However, his mother was a brave lady, and she never let this affect his education.
After completing his early education in Miami, he moved to West Virginia and completed his graduation in 1968 from Bethany College with a degree in veterinary science. However, he never wanted to become a veterinary doctor. He was always keen to be an actor. To make his dreams come true, he learned acting under David Mamet for 2 years and then, the rest is history.
When it comes to private life, Macy is an ideal family man. He married to his long-beau actress Felicity Huffman in 1997. The couple is the proud parents of two children.
Making his way from a middle-class family to Hollywood was not easy for William. As he was interested in acting since his school days, he used to always look for an opportunity. The golden opportunity knocked him when he got David Mamet as his acting trainer. Without a mention of David Mamet, Macy’s acting career can’t be completed. At that time, David Mamet had the financial budget, and Macy had the talents. They both moved to Chicago in early 1970s and founded ‘St Nicolas Theater Company’. Macy appeared as a lead actor in some plays of this production which ultimately gave him the recognition.
After constantly working for this theatre company for a few years, Macy made his film debut in 1980 with the film ‘Somewhere in Time’. After this, he starred in many off-broadways shows. Then in 1985, he again came together with Mamet and the duo founded ‘Atlantic Theater Company’. With this theatre company, he established himself as an actor as well as developed a good bonding with Mamet.
He became so close to Mamet that he starred him in his next films such as Things Change, House of Games, Homicide, and Oleanna. The mainstream of success came for Macy when he starred in ‘Fargo’, ‘Boogie Nights’, and ‘Air Force One’. These are some of the most significant films of Macy.

Speaking of awards, he has won 2 Emmy Awards, 4 Screen Actors Guild Awards, 1 Independent Spirit Award and many other small awards.
