* OnlySaneMan: Rarely, but can step up as one; Alex Trebek from SNL's ''Celebrity Jeopardy'' skits is a prime example- he tried to keep the game running while dealing with idiots and jerks.

One of the most successful ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' alumni since Creator/AdamSandler, '''John William "Will" Ferrell''' (born July 16, 1967) is a [[{{Comedy}} comedic]] actor well known for his ability to say, do, and bear witness to the craziest things with a totally straight face, although he is certainly quite capable of [[LargeHam hamming it up]]. His popularity on ''SNL'' (during the show's third GoldenAge when LorneMichaels once again had to save his show from cancellation following the harsh criticism and low ratings of the show's 20th season by firing long-standing/poorly-performing cast members, keeping in the stand-out performers, and hiring some new blood -- both on and off-set) ensured that he would become a box-office juggernaut in the world of funny movies. He is also part of the FratPack.

* PlayingAgainstType: In ''StrangerThanFiction'', ''Elf'' and ''Megamind''. Also playing the ever-frustrated straightman Alex Trebek in the SNL ''Celebrity Jeopardy!'' skits.



* StarMakingRole: ''Anchorman''. A great argument can be put of for Elf too which predates ''Anchorman'' by a year
