Everyone at some point in their lives, including me, think we have got what it takes to become the next featured comedian on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ and this is kind of how Will Ferrell became the successful actor and comedian the world knows and loves today. Will Ferrell is known by many for a variety of popular roles within the film industry and his success as a comedian. 

Will Ferrell was not always on the track to become a well-known comedian and actor, though, as he actually attended and graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in sports journalism. His degree ultimately led him to become an intern for NBC’s sports network, where he would make a joke in front of a laughing crowd that would reveal that he was really meant for the comedy world after all.

The crowd’s response was enough for Will Ferrell to change his life path in a different direction, and he began his journey to becoming the legend he is today. Will Ferrell has lived an extremely successful life and will continue to for years to come, but where did it all start anyway?

Early Life

Will Ferrell was born on July 16, 1967, to his parents, successful musician Lee Ferrell and Kay Ferrell, in Irvine, California. His parents described him as the quiet, smart kid in the class with an interest in sports which is ultimately shocking when thinking about the loud and hilarious Will we see today. 

As mentioned above, he would go on to attend and graduate from the University of Southern California, which would, in a way, lead him to an internship that would bring realizations that would change his life forever. As he began pursuing a career in the comedy industry, he would quickly land a spot with the Groundlings. Groundlings is a Los Angeles improv troupe that has produced a variety of other successful comedians.

Early Career

Will’s spot in the improv troupe would help him land spots in television sitcoms like ‘Living Single’ and ‘Grace Under Fire,’ but he truly gained popularity when he was noticed by ‘Saturday Night Live’ and would be brought on to the show in 1995. Will remained on ‘Saturday Night Live’ until 2002 as he began to be featured in more and more films that would make him the well-known name he is today.

Some of Will’s most hilarious film features came from his early years as a young comedian; some that come to mind include ‘Zoolander,’ ‘A Night at the Roxbury,’ and much more. As Will left  ‘Saturday Night Live,’ it was clear that it was only the beginning of what was to come from Will Ferrell, and he would become the award-winning actor and comedian he is today.

Will Ferrell in the Early 2000s

Will Ferrell began to receive starring roles that he is recognized for today in films such as ‘Elf,’ ‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,’ and ‘Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.’ These movies made it clear that Will Ferrell was going to be wildly popular and a legend within the film industry, which led to even more roles.

Other notable roles from the early 2000s included ‘Step Brothers,’ ‘Blades of Glory,’ and much more. He also began his debuts on late-night talk shows where he would win over the hearts of more and more people. These roles and guest appearances helped to create the household name he is today.

Present Career

Will Ferrell remained himself throughout the years, rambunctious and outright funny, and everyone still enjoys the movies he continues to be featured in, produces, and his guest roles. He also has maintained his sporty side and has noted that working out is definitely a part of his daily routine.

Will Ferrell is One of a Kind

Will Ferrell is inspiring for a variety of reasons, but naming a few: he’s self-made, has always remained himself, and is giving, which shows through the array of charity work he has done over the years. Most of all, Will Ferrell is loved by so many because of his outgoing and loud personality that shines through the roles he has played over the years.

Will’s films are always on replay when I need a good laugh, and they are always played around the holidays; as you know, ‘Elf’ is the best holiday movie ever created. Okay, some might not agree that it’s the best holiday movie ever, but you have to admit it’s a fantastic movie whether it’s your favorite holiday movie or not. I also will admit that I watch ‘Elf’ all year because it truly is one of my favorite movies ever.

Will Ferrell is constantly working on new projects that are being released every day. Some upcoming films and television shows you might see his work in soon are ‘Am I OK?’ starring Dakota Johnson and directed by Stephanie Allynne. He will also be working on ‘The Prince of Fashion’ starring himself and directed by Gus Van Sant

Will Ferrell will be remembered, rightfully, for decades to come for all of the times he has made people smile and laugh through his work on and off the camera. One thing is for sure; I am definitely going to watch ‘Elf’ right after this because, after all, the holidays are nearing, right? Whether you are an avid fan of Will Ferrell or not, I think most would agree that he is an ultimate comedy legend.
