McGinnis began as an actor in the late 1970s. In 1978, he was cast as a regular in the television sitcom Operation Petticoat, staying with the series until its cancellation the following year. He then appeared in the TV movie Survival of Dana along with Barbara Babcock and Michael Pataki.

He went on to make appearances on such shows as The Facts of Life and Murder, She Wrote (co-starring with Rosemary Forsyth, who played his mother, and Eugene Roche) and had roles in numerous films throughout the 1980s, including Wacko (1983, with Charles Napier), Joysticks (1983, with Logan Ramsey), Secret Admirer (1985, with Leigh Taylor-Young and Cliff DeYoung), Thunder Alley (1985, with Clancy Brown), Class 89 (co-starring Rene Auberjonois and Ed Lauter), You Can't Hurry Love (1988, with Sally Kellerman), and The Boost (1988, with Barry Jenner).
