Will Ferrell

John William Ferrell (born July 16, 1967), better known as Will Ferrell, is a comedian and former cast member of Saturday Night Live (1995-2002). He has also acted in a number of Hollywood movies including A Night at the Roxbury (1998), The Ladies Man[?] (2001), and Zoolander[?] (2001).

Ferrell developed his improvisation skills as a member of the comedy group, The Groundlings[?]. During his time on SNL, Ferrell made a name for himself with impressions of game show host Alex Trebek[?], professional wrestler and governor Jesse Ventura, actor Charlton Heston, baseball player Mark McGwire, U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, and U.S. President George W. Bush.

His final performance as a regular on Saturday Night Live was May 18, 2002, when he decided to follow in the footsteps of fellow SNL alumni into a career of full-time movie acting.

Will's father, Lee Ferrell[?], was a keyboardist for the Righteous Brothers.
