The Saddest Music in the World is not McKinney's first foray into serious acting. He has been seen in pictures as diverse as the Steve Martin remake of Neil Simon's The Out-Of-Towners, Whit Stillman's The Last Days of Disco, Allan Moyle's The New Waterford Girl, and as the notoriously eccentric aesthete John Ruskin in The Passion of John Ruskin.
McKinney is well-known for his many outlandish Kids in the Hall characters, including Mississippi Gary, the crusty old Cabbie, Mr. Pumpoxide, the Chicken Lady and the famed Headcrusher. He also appeared on Saturday Night Live for several seasons.
