William H. Macy is a highly decorated character actor best known for his diversified body of work in independent and international productions, which include starring roles in “Happy, Texas," “Room,” and most recently, “Maybe I Do.”

Apart from Fargo, his catalog of big-ticket projects lists cult classics “Mystery Men” and “Jurassic Park III” in addition to Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Boogie Nights.” Macy launched his directorial career in Sundance 2014 with the musical drama “Rudderless,” followed by “Layover” and “Krystal” three years later.

Fargo — “a homespun murder story” — is the Academy Award-winning 1996 black comedy directed, written, and produced by acclaimed auteurs Joel and Ethan Coen. The film revolves around a triple homicide investigation conducted by pregnant police chief Marge Gunderson following the aftermath of a kidnap-for-ransom gone awry, instigated by struggling car salesman Jerry Lundegaard.

“It rotates its story through satire, comedy, suspense, and violence until it emerges as one of the best films I've ever seen,” Roger Ebert expressed in his 4/4 star review.

Starring Frances McDormand, William H. Macy, Steve Buscemi, and Peter Stormare, the film premiered at the 49th annual Cannes Film Festival, where it was nominated for a Palme d'Or and won an award for Best Director. Its other major accolades include two Oscars, a BAFTA Film Award, and three Golden Satellite Awards. Fargo ranked 84th in AFI's 1998 list of 100 greatest American films and was inducted to the National Film Registry in 2006.

The Murat Theatre, a landmark for the performing arts in metropolitan Indianapolis, will host the momentous night, welcoming 2,500 patrons inside its intimate scarlet-bound halls.
