William H. Wussy?

Despite his role as one of Hollywood's finest character actors, William H. Macy had no illusions about becoming a leading man. "I wouldn't mind being the guy, wouldn't mind getting the girl," he once admitted. "But I've got to face reality... I'm a character guy. I feel like Tom Cruise, but I look like Howdy Doody!"

[Macy's nickname at Bethany College? "Willie". Among his ad spot voice-overs? "Secret -- strong enough for a man but made for a woman."]
