One of the most successful ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' alumni since Creator/AdamSandler, Will Ferrell is a [[{{Comedy}} comedic]] actor well known for his ability to say and do the craziest things with a totally straight face, although he is certainly quite capable of [[LargeHam hamming it up]]. His popularity on SNL ensured that he would become a box-office juggernaut in the world of funny movies. He is also part of the FratPack.

* HiddenDepths: Has dabbled in songwriting and does his own singing on at least one occasion.
** Considering the [[ManChild basic]] [[{{Keet}} personality]] in most of his movies, ''StrangerThanFiction'' is often thought of as exposing this for him.

* LargeHam
* ManChild: in ''Elf'' and ''Step Brothers''; his second best known act after:
** MinorInjuryOverreaction
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Running around in tightey-whiteys in at least two occasions. And once completely butt naked.

* PlayingAgainstType: In ''StrangerThanFiction'', ''Elf'' and ''Megamind''.
* RunningGag: The waterskiing squirrel, from ''Anchorman'' to ''Megamind''.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl
* SeventiesHair: Justified in ''Anchorman'' and maybe ''Semi-Pro'', but what was up with the hair in ''BladesOfGlory''?
