Macy has played the role of Frank Gallagher on the Showtime series Shameless for more than 10 years, garnering five Emmy nominations for his work on the dramatic comedy.
Speaking with EW in December, Macy said he was immediately intrigued at his first sight of the show, which hit the air in 2011.
‘Immediately I had no doubts that this thing would have legs,’ he said. ‘It was so fresh, and I loved everything about it. And boy, has it been a mitzvah in my life.’
The venerated performer said he has ‘learned a whole lot about acting’ on the series, which features Shanola Hampton, Ethan Cutkosky, Emma Kenney, Jeremy Allen White and Emmy Rossum.

‘There ain’t nothing like getting to go to work every day,’ he told the outlet. ‘If only I could have done this in my 20s or 30s, I would have learned how to act a lot better a lot sooner.’
Macy said he’s appreciative of the show’s long-term success as it gets ready to wrap up after 11 seasons.
‘It’s rare to be in a hit, and it’s rare to get a long-running TV show,’ he said. ‘Almost every TV show when it gets to the end of its tether will jump the shark at a point, and the last seasons are notoriously bad because everyone is out of gas and there are no stories,’ he said. ‘But, man, I’ve got to tell you … they’re still bringing these great, surprising scripts.’
The Cooler star said the long-running gig on the hit show has made for a comfortable professional situation.
‘I used to say in this business the highest high you can get is a great role in a Broadway hit,’ he said. ‘And I still think that is probably it, but I’ve gotta say, riding through the gate at Warner Bros. on your motorcycle when you’ve been coming for 10 years and they know you and I just slow down and hold out my hand and the guard would slap five with me and I’d ride my bike right up to my trailer, well, there might be feelings better than that in this world, but they’re rare.
‘That’s pretty cool, and I’m going to miss it.’
