In Dallas for the 1973 film "Paper Moon," director Peter Bogdanovich discovered Gilliam and cast him as Floyd the desk clerk. GilliamÂs role in "Paper Moon" caught the attention of legendary writer, comedian, and actor Mel Brooks, who cast him in the 1974 classic "Blazing Saddles," transforming Gilliam into a cult hero. Since then, Gilliam has appeared over 40 films and 190 television shows.
In addition to his extensive film and television career, Gilliam has appeared in over 200 commercials for companies such as Ford Trucks, Coca-Cola, Quaker State Motor Oil, Taco Bell, and McDonaldÂs and was the national spokesperson for Pace Picante Sauce ("Hey, that stuffÂs made in New York City!") for twelve years.
