‘Shameless’ and ‘Fargo’ actor William H. Macy set to host Patchogue Theatre event


Tickets are still available for “Shameless” actor William H. Macy’s appearance this weekend at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts.

The Oscar and Golden Globe nominee will be on stage Saturday, March 16, to host a screening of his 1996 film “Fargo” and interact with audience members. The event kicks off at 8 p.m. inside the theater, located at 71 E. Main St. in Patchogue.

Macy, who turned 73 on Wednesday, March 13, currently stars in the Amazon Prime Video movie “Ricky Stanicky.” He recently starred in the independent feature film “Maybe I Do” and the Hulu mini-series “The Dropout.”

He famously portrayed the complex, flawed and occasionally devoted father Frank Gallagher in Showtime’s long-running series “Shameless.” It was a role for which he was nominated twice for a Best Actor Emmy Award and won twice for the Screen Actors Guild award for Best Actor.

Macy’s other film credits include “Seabiscuit,” “The Cooler,” “Boogie Nights,” “Wild Hogs,” and “Magnolia.” He made his feature directorial debut with “Rudderless” in 2014, and followed up with “The Layover” in 2017 and “Krystal” in 2018.

Macy was recently in the news for sharing an update on his family, five years after he, his wife Felicity Huffman, and their daughters Sophia, 23, and Georgia, 21, were at the center of a college admissions scandal that landed Huffman behind bars for 11 days.

“She’s doing great,” he told E! News last month, while promoting “Ricky Stanicky,” which premiered March 7. “She’s in London doing a play and I’m going to go see her. It’s been too long.”
