    Bruce McGill

    Jew Score:



    July 11, 1950 —

    In our ongoing quest to find Mc- and MacJews, we found some excellent examples: Ali MacGraw, Sam McCullum, Stella McCartney... But we forgot to look in the Mac-iest place of them all. No, not McDonald's.


    You remember MacGuyver, don't you? The quintessential end-of-the-80s show where the eponymous protagonist could get out from the toughest of jams using simple household items. Duct tape, rope, moth balls, candlesticks, vodka, rocks, rubber bands, hockey tickets... Yes, we distinctly remember one episode where MacGuyver stopped an explosion using hockey tickets. (This is part of a little-known corollary that every mulleted Canadian actor starring in an American TV show must proclaim their love for hockey. We're looking at you, Dave Coulier.)

    But no, neither MacGuyver, nor the man who played him, Richard Dean Anderson, is Jewish. However, Bruce McGill, the man who played MacGuyver's sidekick, is (Halachically through his mother).

    So mark another in our quest for Mc- and MacJews!

    O'Jews? That one is tougher...

    Verdict: Jew.
