Hail to the Macy
Posted On Jan 24, 2016
One of our fave binge shows on Showtime brings us the cleverly written series beginning with a distraught dad who pulls together fatherhood from the bottom of a brown paper bag, played by THE William H. Macy in Shameless. We now, as a collective whole, use the term “Franked” for getting hammered.
Hey, what did you do this weekend? … Man, I got ‘Franked’! #HailtotheMacy
Thankfully, New You was able to snag a few moments from the Oscar-nominated actor during The Casting Society of America (CSA) 31st annual Artios Awards last night. This amazing event celebrates the excellence in casting for television, theatre, web series and short film.
For anyone trying to break into the industry, learn from the best…
“If a casting director takes a shine to you, it can change your life,” the uber-talented William H. Macy explains.
This, coming from a guy who has been in the industry for over four decades, whose appeared in big time films: Fargo, Air Force One, Boogie Nights, Wild Hogs, The Lincoln Lawyer and most recently, Oscar nominated Room, to name just a few. So, listen up! Mr. Macy has some major advice for those who are looking to get recognized.
“I want the character to walk into the room,” when asked what he looks for in talent. “My wish is for me not to have to say another word, just… roll the cameras and he or she will be brilliant.”
We just love you William Hall Macy! Truly an honor to speak with you!
You can catch the fantastically intoxicated Macy in his rising Showtime series, Shameless @ 9 PM EST.
