Hollywood came calling in 1974. "The Mac Davis Show" ran for two years, and his movie roles included "North Dallas Forty" and "Cheaper to Keep Her". He continued to act through the years with roles on "That '70s Show" and as the voice of Sheriff Buford on "King of the Hill". His last appearance was playing Preacher J.J.

I always enjoyed Mac Davis, even though that hit, Baby Don't Get Hooked on Me is a pretty chauvinistic song. But for the 70's, it fit. He was incredibly talented and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame He and his talent will be missed. Rest in peace Mac Davis.
