Bill Macy (born Wolf Mavin Garber, May 18, 1922) is an American television and stage actor.

Macy was born in Revere, Massachusetts, to Mollie (née Friedopfer) and Michael Garber, a manufacturer. He is best known for his portrayal of Walter Findlay, the long-suffering husband of the title character on the 1970s television sitcom Maude.

Macy was also an original cast member of the long-running theatrical revue Oh! Calcutta!. Since Maude was canceled in 1978, he has made more than 70 appearances on film and television, including a memorable role as the co-inventor of the 'Opti-grab' in the 1979 Steve Martin comedy The Jerk.

Macy appeared occasionally on Seinfeld as one of the residents of "Del Boca Vista," a Florida retirement community in which Jerry Seinfeld's parents lived, as well as on the short-lived Kelsey Grammer/Patricia Heaton situation comedy Back To You.
