Biography

Bill Macy is a stage and television actor best known for his role as the hapless husband of arch-feminist Maude Findlay in "Maude". Macy entered the entertainment industry doing poetry readings, movie bits, and comedy gigs. He was uncredited as the jury foreman in the 1968 Mel Brooks comedy "The Producers" and, in the following year, appeared onstage nake--at the age of 45--in the controversial New York musical "Oh! Calcutta!". He nabbed two guest spots on "All in the Family" in 1972, first billed as a policeman, then as Walter Findlay, the husband of Maude, who was played by Bea Arthur. Arthur's character was subsequently granted the CBS spin-off sitcom "Maude", which aired from 1972 to 1978. Macy reprised his role as the resigned, accommodating husband and the owner of Findlay's Friendly Appliances for six seasons. Once "Maude" concluded its run, Macy went back to performing in Broadway and off-Broadway shows, including Neil Simon's "I Ought To Be In Pictures", in both New York City and London. He occasionally picked up film or TV parts, such as "The Jerk" in 1979--as the co-inventor of the "Opti-grab"--or "St. Elsewhere" in 1984. These bit parts continued through the 2000s, and, in his 80s, Macy appeared in Hollywood films like "The Holiday" and "Mr. Woodcock" as well as TV shows "Back to You", "ER", and "My Name is Earl".
