Macy has a history of appearances in Lancaster County, where he and his wife Felicity Huffman have relatives. He was spotted at a CrossFit gym in Ephrata in 2018 and previously was seen shopping at the town's Walmart in 2014.
Macy's storied career includes his Oscar-nominated role as the shady Jerry Lundegaard in the Coen Brothers' classic 1996 film "Fargo." Other major acting credits include roles in "Seabiscuit," "Jurassic Park III," "Wild Hogs," "Mystery Man" and Gus van Sant's remake of the Alfred Hitchcock classic "Psycho."
On TV, Macy had a high-profile role as Dr. David Morganstern in "ER." He also debuted as a director in 2014 with the independent musical drama film "Rudderless."
Macy's appearance in Ephrata this week is one of many celebrity sightings in Lancaster County in recent years.
Earlier this year, pop star Justin Bieber was spotted at Manheim's City Star Diner while preparing for an upcoming tour at Lititz Rock, an arena-like concert rehearsal facility that has also brought Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Elton John to the area. Lady Gaga reportedly once had a house in Lancaster County with ex-partner Taylor Kinney, and Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong celebrated his birthday with the rest of the band at Lancaster's Decades amusement venue in 2020.
Macy's most recent acting role is in the hit Hulu mini-series "The Dropout," which documents the fall of Elizabeth Holmes' disgraced biotechnology company Theranos.
