Mike Judge, creator of "King of the Hill," and actress Morgan Fairchild will be among those inducted into the Texas Film Hall of Fame on March 7, the Austin Film Society said Wednesday.

They will join previously announced inductees Thomas Haden Church, Jayne Mansfield and the film "Urban Cowboy." Mansfield's award will be accepted by her daughter, actress Mariska Hargitay. The award for the movie will be accepted by one of its stars, Debra Winger, the society said.

Judge, who lives in Austin, is the voice of the main character on "King of the Hill," Hank Hill. His other projects include "Beavis and Butt-Head" and "Office Space."

Fairchild, a Dallas native, is known for her numerous film and TV roles, including "Falcon Crest."
