UPDATE: If you find yourself walking on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, be sure to stop and look down: Today is the day William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman are awarded their double star, with David Mamet and Aaron Sorkin serving as guest speakers at the ceremony. Let’s all be immediately jealous that we’re not as cool or adorable as these two.
EARLIER: Adorable, functional Hollywood couple news? You betcha! William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman are getting the rare double star (all the way!) on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced that the famous pair will join a distinguished few who get to take part in a double ceremony. Macy and Huffman, who have been married since 1997 and have two children, will become the second married couple to be honored with their stars on the same day. (The last time was in 2008 for film producers Lauren Shuler Donner and Richard Donner.)
Macy, who currently appears on Shameless, and Huffman, who is wrapping up the final season of Desperate Housewives, have two Oscar nominations, two Emmy wins, and seven Globe nominations between them. The adorable duo, who worked together on the beloved Sports Night, all but stole the Golden Globes earlier this year with their charming little ditty.
The couple, who will receive their double star on the Walk of Fame on Wednesday, March 7, will join the joint likes of Sherry Lansing and William Friedkin, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon, Sonny Bono and Cher, Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, and Betty White and Allen Ludden. (All who, unlike Macy and Huffman, had separate ceremonies.)
