Famous for his manic star turns and show-stealing cameos which clearly display his extraordinary talent in creating memorable witty performance, Will Ferrell has really stood out as one of the most celebrated comedic actors Hollywood ever has. A native of Irvine, California born John William Ferrell on July 16, 1967 to Lee and Kay Ferrell, Will grew up as a big comedy fan who first discovered the excitement of performing when he successfully entertained his schoolmates of Irvine's University High School with various disguised voices in daily morning announcements over the public access system. Even so, the desire to be a comedian had not really occurred to his mind for he at that time was more interested in becoming a sports broadcaster which led him to take sports information major at the University of Southern California after his high school graduation in 1986.
