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.

Obtained his degree several years later, Will delightfully made his way to earn a job as a sportscaster for a weekly cable show, but soon realized that the profession was not what he really wanted and subsequently turned his attention to comedic acting. Failed to flourish his new career through some performances in comedy clubs and college coffee houses, he then enrolled in improvisational comedy classes held by The Groundlings in the year 1991, eventually was included in the group alongside Chris Kattan, Ana Gasteyer, plus Cheri Oteri. It was during his time with this troupe that he learned about an open audition for a new fresh face in the 1995-1996 season of "Saturday Night Live" (1975) and decided to go for a try when it came to Los Angeles.
