Asked to comment on Mark Wahlberg's statement that he hopes God forgives him for playing a porn star in "Boogie Nights," William H. Macy told TMZ, "He doesn't need forgiveness!"

Macy, who currently stars on Showtime's "Shameless," told TMZ of the 1997 Oscar-nominated film: "It's a great movie. It's a moral movie."

He costarred in the Paul Thomas Anderson movie as porn director Little Bill, who (spoiler!) memorably shoots his wife and then himself at a New Year's Eve party after finding her having sex with another man.
