John William "Will" Ferrell (born July 16, 1967) is an American comedian, impressionist, actor, and writer. Ferrell established himself in the mid-1990s as a cast member on the NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live.

With fellow friend and cast member Chris Kattan, Ferrell created Doug and Steve Butabi, two recurring characters that became popular enough to star in their own movie, A Night at the Roxbury.

Ferrell left after the May 18, 2002 episode, after seven years on the show. The final sketch of the episode featured a special farewell to Ferrell from all the other cast members. Since then he has starred in many movies, including Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, and Step Brothers (all of which were written and directed by former SNL writer Adam Mckay).
