Michael is likely to be most known for his spectacular appearance in the comedy starring Will Ferrell from 2003.
In that role, he played James Caan’s tough-as-nails employer, Fulton, who was demanding a grade-A children’s book.
Will Ferrell was one of Michael’s biggest fans. Of course, he already had a significant number of credits under his belt when that happened.
He is survived by his well-known brother, Ken, as well as other members of his family. The age of Michael was 81.
