MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JANUARY 16: Will Ferrell walks on to the court to interview Roger Federer of Switzerland after Federer won his first round match against Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia on day two of the 2018 Australian Open at Melbourne Park on January 16, 2018 in Melbourne, Australia.

Will Ferrell is one of many people’s all-time favorite actors. Will started his career as a cast member of SNL (Saturday Night Live) in the 90s. And he was declared in the beginning, to be, quite possibly, the worst cast member ever during his first season. But his impersonations and range of characters made him arguably the greatest Saturday Night Live cast member ever! During his seven year run, he is one of the few cast members to ever be nominated for an Emmy for a performance and played during the 2000 elections when he played George W. Bush. 

Will was a cast member from 1995-2002 and during that time he appeared in several movies like Austin Powers, A Night at the Roxbury, Superstar, Zoolander, The Ladies Man, and more.  

Will was drawing laughs from people even in school. When he would do the high school announcements he would do them in different voices. After high school, he attended USC in LA and studied sports journalism. That is why you see him make appearances on ESPN and other sports broadcasts.

Will’s real name is John Wiliam Ferrell. Not sure when he started going by his middle name but I’m glad he does. He doesn’t look like  John to me.

Will has countless movies under his belt. He has been in at least 59 movies and we tried our hardest to boil it down to Will Ferrell’s top 15 movies. It was difficult but we narrowed them down and I hope you agree with our number pick.
