Will Ferrell Biography

Will Ferrell is an American comedian, impressionist, actor, producer and writer. Ferrell first established himself in the mid-1990s as a cast member on the NBC sketch comedy show "Saturday Night Live" and has subsequently starred in the comedy films "Old School," "Elf," "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," "Talladega Nights," "Stranger than Fiction," "Blades of Glory," "Semi-Pro," "Step Brothers," "The Other Guys" and "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues." He is considered a member of the "Frat Pack," a generation of leading Hollywood comic actors who emerged in the late 1990s and the 2000s, including Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Steve Carell, Vince Vaughn and brothers Owen and Luke Wilson.

During his time on Saturday Night Live, Ferrell appeared in several movies: "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery," "A Night at the Roxbury," "Superstar," "The Ladies Man," "Dick," "Drowning Mona," "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and "Zoolander."

His first starring role came after his departure from SNL with Frank "The Tank" Richard in "Old School." The film was a major success and Ferrell received an MTV Movie Awards nomination for Best Comedic Performance. The title role in "Elf" followed, as did another MTV Movie Awards nomination.

In 2010, he was the executive producer and star of "The Other Guys," a buddy cop film, which also has an ensemble cast which consists of Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton, Steve Coogan, Ray Stevenson, Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson.

In April 2007, Ferrell launched "Funny or Die," a streaming video website where short comedy films are uploaded and voted on by users. The site features "The Landlord," starring Ferrell and Pearl McKay, the toddler daughter of Funny or Die co-founder Adam McKay. Ferrell's character is harassed for the rent by his landlady, a swearing, beer-loving, two-year-old girl (played by McKay's daughter, Pearl).

Ferrell co-produces (with Adam McKay) an HBO show starring Danny McBride called "Eastbound & Down." He also has a recurring role as car dealer Ashley Schaeffer.

Ferrell also stars in the Zoolander sequel Zoolander 2 (2016).

  • Our ‘Zoolander 2’ Conversation With Kristen Wiig And Will Ferrell Is A Butt-Cheeky Good Time

    My name is Matthew Jacobs, and I'm a writer who pretended to be a competent broadcast interviewer for approximately four minutes last weekend. It was for a good cause: Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell. Together! I sat down with the pair at the television junket for "Zoolander 2," in which Ferrell reprises his role as Mugatu and a camouflaged Wiig joins in as his partner in evil. With limited time, I fired off a series of fun questions inspired by the new movie. You don't need to be aware of the (rather wild) plot to follow along, though you should know that dead pop stars and bohemian sex parties are part of the ride. Prepare to hear Ferrell's foolproof method for conquering the Syrian crisis.
