Birth Sign

John W. Ferrell was born on July 16, 1967 in the city of Irvine, California. He was the oldest son of Lee Ferrell, a famous keyboard player, and teacher Kay Ferrell. Studious, and sometimes, a little quiet, Will chose to be involved more in the football pitch, where he set a record at the school for most goals ever scored. He lived in a suburb home, but he continuously displayed funny outburst, not knowing that it later would define his career. A glimpse of his talent showed at high school, where he used to disguise his voice each morning to make daily announcements over public address system. In 1986 when he graduated, Ferrell chose to go to University of Southern California in order to pursue his dream in sports journalism. When he graduated in 1989, he got his first taste of television at NBC, where he worked as an intern for the sports department.

Career Accomplishments

In the beginning, Will’s attempt at standup comedy did not prove much success, but when he realized that he could impersonate people, such as the Hall of Fame baseball announcer Harry Carry, he began to create more original characters. He started receiving small roles like TV series Living Single and Grace Under Fire, and low-budget films and commercials. His career took a turn in 1994 when he was offered a role with The Groundings, the top professional group. In 1994 -1995 the SNL’s declined in popularity and there was a need to have new cast members be featured in the coming season. So a producer watched The groundings and asked Cheri Oteri, Kattan and Ferrell to audition. In 1995 he succeeded and was offered a spot in Saturday Night Live, where he worked until 2002. During that time Will made a good name for himself, especially by impersonating Janet Reno, U.S. Attorney General; George W. Bush, the U.S. President; and singer Notorious BIG. Ferrell was then flooded with numerous movie offers, such as Talladega Nights, Stepbrothers, and Blades of Glory.

Most Known For

Will Ferrell is mostly known for his role in the comedy scene, especially his talent in impersonating musicians, commentators and politicians. He, however, came to fame when he was offered a role as a cast member on the show Saturday Night Live. Some of the films that he’s is best known for include ABC’s Grace Under Fire and Fox’s Living Single.

Where is he now

Today Ferrell lives with his dear wife and children in New York City. They also have a home in Orange County where they all spend time together. He is involved in charitable work, raising money for the Cancer survivor’s campaigns through a fundraising platform.
