Will Ferrell Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Born John William Ferrell on 16 July 1967, in Irvine, California USA, of English, Irish and German ancestry, Will is a comedian, writer, and actor. He is particularly well-known as an impressionist, as well as a voice actor and film producer, so Will has contributed a lot to the film and television industry, thus explaining the size of his net worth.

So just how rich is Will Ferrell?  Sources estimate that Will’s net worth is $80 million, accumulated through his activities in several arms of the entertainment industry, as he is so talented and versatile.

Will Ferrell Net Worth $80 Million

Will Ferrell’s father Ray was a musician with the popular duo The Righteous Brothers, and his mother Betty an elementary school teacher, although they divorced when Will was eight.  Will attended University High School in Irvine, and was a good sportsman, and then the University of Southern California where he studied Sports Broadcasting, but after graduating, an internship at a local TV station convinced him to look for another career.

Will Ferrell had always been the class clown, sometimes inadvertently, so after working in several casual jobs, he auditioned for the comedy group The Groundlings, with whom he was able to refine his stand-up comedy techniques, especially in immitation.The start of Will Ferrell’s popular appeal occurred when he joined the cast of the TV show “Saturday Night Live” in 1995,  subsequently spending seven years on this show, and thus establishing a solid base to his net worth. As for television overall, Will has indeed a long list of shows and series in which he has appeared. Will has performed in “Grace Under Fire” (1995), “Cow and Chicken” (1997), “Strangers with Candy” (2000), “The Guardian” (2003), “The Naked Trucker and T-bones Show” (2007), “Hubworld” (2010), and “Conan” (2012 – 2013). His recent projects on television include “The Spoils of Babylon” (2014) and “Welcome to Sweden” (2014). The already mentioned and many other series have undoubtedly boosted Will Ferrell’s net worth.

Will Ferrell`s debut in film industry was in the 1995 black comedy horror film “Bucket of Blood”, following which Will increased his net worth year by year. He appeared in such movies as “The Thin Pink Line” (1998), “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” (1999), “Old School” (2003), “Elf” (2003), “Wedding Crashers” (2005), “Blades of Glory” (2007), “Step Brothers” (2008), “The Other Guys” (2010), “Megamind” (2010) and many others.

Many films have grossed Will Fennell well into seven figures, ever increasing his net worth. Will`s  most recent film project is “Get Hard”, due for release in 2015; Ferrell is both an actor and a producer.

Unsuprisingly for an immitator, Will Ferrell is also a voice actor, having ‘voiced’ many animated films and television series, including “King of the Hill”, “LEGO Movie”, and “Family Guy”. This has also been a significant source of money for Will, leading to a luxurious life.

The multi-talented Ferrell made his Broadway debut in a limited run in 2009, playing U.S. President George W. Bush in a one-man show called “You’re Welcome America: A Final Night with George W. Bush”.

Will Ferrell has been married to the Swedish actress Viveca Paulin since 2000, and the couple has three children. Will owns an apartment in Manhattan, and also a luxurious mansion in Los Angeles: the latter even has a botanical garden. As for his cars, Will has a BMW Hydrogen 7, Mercedes E 320 and Nissan Leaf.

#Quote
1 [Lorne Michaels] never really has a moment where he says, "So, welcome to the show." He phrases it, "So, we're bringing you to New York." And I thought, God, another audition? And he goes, "Cheri [Oteri]'s going to be there, too." And that's when it hit me: Oh, my God. I got the gig. But I didn't have a celebratory moment with him. Then I got self-conscious, like it came across that I didn't care about getting the job. So I stood up real quick, and I'm like "Well, gosh, thank you. I just want to shake your hand." And he said, "Do whatever you have to do.".
2 I rotate my clothes so everything is equally worn. Sometimes, that means orange shorts and red shoes. My wife is like "Really?".
3 (2006) I do feel, at heart, that I'm a lazy person who found this thing that I love. Comedy makes me industrious. Without it, I'm just another guy.
4 (on Stranger Than Fiction (2006)) It was so freeing to not run around and act like a crazy person. It was so nice to be conversational and talk like a normal human being. I felt like my job on Stranger Than Fiction was to play really good defense. Don't throw the ball out of bounds. If you're open, take the shot but, otherwise, don't get too fancy.
5 (2006, on living with his mother for three years after college) I had no ego about that. It's kind of sad.
6 (2006) I was never the class clown. I was popular in high school and in college. I was good at sports. I've always been a 'but look, the glass is half-full' kind of guy. I used to worry that I wasn't crazy enough to succeed in comedy. Or troubled enough. In the beginning, people were surprised that a seemingly mild-mannered person could bring a script or a character to life. But I'm not above throwing a chair out a window just to see what happens. I may not have demons, but I am kind of immune to inhibitions.
7 [on running in the Boston Marathon] I actually had people running up next to me with beer bongs and offering me shots. All of this crazy stuff. And no, I didn't take any of it.
8 [on George W. Bush] I had a couple of opportunities to go and meet him, and I declined, partly out of comedic purposes, because when I was on the show [Saturday Night Live (1975)] at the time, it didn't make sense to really meet the people that you play, for fear of them influencing you. And then the other side of it is, from a political standpoint, I don't want to meet that guy.
9 [on his role as a basketball player in Semi-Pro (2008)] I love the fact that this is historically accurate and funny all at the same time. You can parody the sport and you can parody the era, but at the same time you have a built-in arc for the audience as they watch this team try to attain the lofty goal of fourth place.
10 I always forced myself to do crazy things in public. In college I would push an overhead projector across campus with my pants just low enough to show my butt.
11 I'd much rather be in a comedy. In my view, comedy wins out in the long run. I'm not sure I'm a good enough actor to play real tragedy, so I bring a comic element to most things as my answer to the world's problems. I'm not a clown, though. I love goofing around, but I don't feel the need to act the clown in private - I do it at work, that's where I exorcise my demons. Although I confess that I do sometimes put together outfits to annoy my wife.
12 I've got no dark secrets, I wasn't beaten up, my parents were kind to me and there was a low crime rate where we lived. Maybe that's where the comedy comes from, as some sort of reaction to the safe, boring suburbs. Although, I gotta say, I never had any resentment of the place. I loved the suburbs.
13 It doesn't really exist, this Frat Pack. We run into each other on occasions and we all like each other's films, I guess, but there isn't some big funny restaurant or bar where we all hang out. At least, if there is, they haven't invited me. I wasn't in You, Me and Dupree (2006), Luke Wilson's last movie, and none of them was in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006) with me and, actually, nobody gives a shit.
14 I saw a news story recently that said I'm 6' 4". I'm creeping up, like in the high school football programs where you give yourself 15 more pounds. In three years I want to be 6' 5" in stories. And I'm gonna do the opposite of these kids like LeBron James who are coming out of high school and going into the NBA. I'm gonna be the first 36-year-old white guy who tries to make it in the NBA.
15 It was a gradual rise that started on SNL. I went from being the guy who did the cheer-leading thing, to the guy who plays the president to, "Hey, that's Will Ferrell!" I saw that happen then in terms of films, and it was really Old School (2003) that got me a real lead part. It was a scary thing when I left SNL (in 2003), but then "Old School" came out, and then Elf (2003) happened the same year, and now Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006).
16 [on being a comic]: I attribute it to growing up in safe, boring suburbia in California. I wasn't beaten up by anyone, there was a really low crime rate. There was really nothing to do except think of funny things.
17 There's just something about yelling that's funny to me.
18 I often don't think a lot about the ramifications of anything I do.
19 I'm not really an exhibitionist. I'm drawn to the outrageous stuff because it's fun, not because it's some deep compulsion. I'm no tortured, anger-stoked, deeply neurotic comic. Just a pretty low-key normal guy. A, "Hey, the glass is half-full", kind of a guy. But please keep it quiet, or I may never work again.
