Since earning an Oscar nomination and an Independent Spirit Award as Best Supporting Actor for his role as a conniving car dealer in Fargo, it's been hard for audiences to ignore the versatile talents of WILLIAM H. MACY (The Shoveler). Most recently Macy has been named Best Supporting Actor of the Year by ShoWest for his 1998 body of work. Macy is not only getting the recognition he deserves, but the roles as well.

In 1999, he continues to take on satisfying roles. Recently, Macy wrapped production on the Paul Thomas Anderson feature Magnolia, as well as the independent feature Panic, a dark comedy directed by Henry Bromell, in which Macy stars as a reluctant hitman. He also stars opposite his wife Felicity Huffman in Travesty, a TNT television film written by Macy and his partner Steven Schachter, which Schachter directs.

Upcoming for Macy is Happy Texas, in which he stars opposite Steve Zahn and Jeremy Northam and which received incredible buzz at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Happy Texas is scheduled for release in October.
