Film work

McGill has starred in many films, perhaps his most well-known role being "D-Day" in the 1978 comedy classic "National Lampoon's Animal House", a role McGill was desperate to take at the time, recalling his days as a young unemployed actor sitting in a New York City casting office. In "Animal House", he played the "William Tell Overture" by drumming his fingers on his windpipe. He duplicated this talent in "MacGyver", playing "Rock-A-Bye Baby" to lull a child in his care to sleep. Some of his films include Wildcats, "Tough Enough", "Cliffhanger","The Last Boy Scout", "Rosewood", "My Cousin Vinny", "Timecop", "Black Sheep", "The Insider", "", "Collateral", "Matchstick Men", "The Legend of Bagger Vance" (2000), "Ali" (2001) "The Sum of All Fears" (2002), "Runaway Jury" (2003), "Cinderella Man" (2005)., "Valley of the Heart's Delight" (2005), and most recently Vantage Point (2008). He is a favorite of director Michael Mann. He recently played Mac Stipanovich in the 2008 HBO TV film "Recount" about the 2000 Presidential election in Florida.

Television roles

McGill's television guest appearances range from "Quantum Leap" (in both the pilot and final episodes), "Walker, Texas Ranger", ', "Crime Story", and "Miami Vice", to ' as Captain Braxton in the episode "Relativity". He has also appeared multiple times as a regular guest star in "MacGyver" as the title character's comical best friend Jack Dalton. Echoing that role, McGill often plays friends of the lead character in film and television. He played Willard Cates in the short-lived series "Wolf Lake." He is scheduled to join the cast of "Bionic Woman" in the fall of 2007.

McGill also played Major Ed Ryan in the third season Babylon 5 episode "Severed Dreams". Babylon 5 producer J. Michael Straczynski originally intended for Everett McGill to play the role. However he did not know McGill's first name, so when he asked to have McGill contacted Straczynski was asked if he meant Bruce McGill, to which he replied yes. Even though it became apparent to Straczynski when Bruce McGill met him to discuss the role that this wasn't the McGill Straczynski had in mind, Straczynski decided to use him anyway.
