Hollywood Chamber to honor Will Ferrell with star on Walk of Fame
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that Will Ferrell will be honored with the 2,547th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday, March 24, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. The star in the category of Motion Pictures will be dedicated at 6767 Hollywood Boulevard in front of The Hollywood Wax Museum.

“Will Ferrell has made the world laugh with his hilarious characterizations and brilliant timing in films that have entertained so many people. We are proud to add this comedic genius to the Hollywood Walk of Fame!” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies.

Helping emcee and Hollywood Chamber President/CEO Leron Gubler to unveil the star will be actors John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon.

Ferrell’s latest film is the upcoming Warner Bros. comedy “Get Hard,” in which he stars opposite Kevin Hart.  It opens nationwide on March 27, 2015.

Born and raised in Irvine, California, Ferrell graduated from USC with a degree in sports information. He worked as a sportscaster on a local weekly cable show before enrolling in acting classes and stand-up comedy workshops. He was asked to join the esteemed comedy/improv group The Groundlings after just one year of training. It was at The Groundlings that Ferrell was discovered for “Saturday Night Live”

Ferrell has come a long way since “SNL,” crossing over from television icon to a motion picture star, producer and internet pioneer. He starred for seven seasons on NBC’s seminal late-night hit after taking the nation by storm during the show’s “Indecision 2000,” with his portrayal of President George W. Bush. Some of his most memorable “SNL” characters include Craig the Spartan Spirit Cheerleader, musical middle school teacher Marty Culp, and George W. Bush. Among his many impressions were Janet Reno, Alex Trebek, Neil Diamond and the late, Chicago Cubs sportscaster Harry Caray. His work on “SNL” earned Ferrell two Emmy nominations in 2001, for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program, and Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program.

Ferrell most recently reprised his role as Ron Burgundy, the character he made famous in the 2004 comedy “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.” Ferrell co-wrote both films with director Adam McKay under their Gary Sanchez production shingle. “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” has earned over $172-million worldwide to date.

Ferrell also recently lent his voice to the character Lord Business in the animated film “The LEGO® Movie,” which has gone on to earn over $441-million in the worldwide box office.

Previously, Ferrell starred opposite Zach Galifianakis in “The Campaign,”and the ambitious “Casa de mi Padre,” a comedy spoof in the Latin American telenovela style, filmed entirely in Spanish, for which Ferrell served as producer and also starred as the lead. Ferrell’s many film credits also include “Elf,” “Zoolander,” “Old School,” and the screen adaptation of “The Producers,” which earned him his first Golden Globe nomination in 2006 for Best Supporting Actor. In 2007, Ferrell earned his second Golden Globe nomination, for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical, for his portrayal of IRS agent Harold Crick in “Stranger Than Fiction.”

Ferrell earned a 2009 Tony Award nomination for his Broadway debut, headlining the sold-out, Tony-nominated one-man comedy show “Will Ferrell: You’re Welcome America, A Final Night with George W Bush,” directed by Adam McKay, in which he perfected his infamous “Saturday Night Live” characterization of President Bush. At the end of its Broadway run, Ferrell performed the show, live, in its entirety on HBO, earning a pair of Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Comedy Special and Outstanding Writing.

In 2007, Ferrell and McKay founded the popular and award-winning video website Funnyordie.com. With hundreds of exclusive celebrity videos and a steady stream of huge viral hits, ‘Funny Or Die’ has become the place to be seen for comedic celebrities, and the obvious destination for a daily comedy fix. Its first video, “The Landlord,” has received over 81 million views and the site averages over 20-million unique visitors and 60-million page views per month.

Through their company, Gary Sanchez Productions, Ferrell and McKay wrote the HBO comedy series “Eastbound and Down,” starring Danny McBride, and the 2014feature comedy “Tammy,” starring Melissa McCarthy. The company currently has several feature projects in the works.

Gary Sanchez supported the 2006 Sundance hit “The Foot Fist Way,” starring McBride, who also co-wrote with director Jody Hill; “The Goods: LiveHard, Sell Hard,” starring Jeremy Piven; and “Step Brothers,” which earned over $100 million domestically. In 2006, Ferrell starred in the hit comedy “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” with co-stars John C. Reilly and Sacha Baron Cohen. Earning nearly $150-million at the U.S. box office, the film became the season’s No. 1 non-animated comedy and continues to set records on DVD.

A testament to his impact on the American comedic landscape, Ferrell was named the recipient of the 2011 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. The award recognizes people who have had an impact on American society in the same vein as social commentator, satirist, and the creator of memorable characters, Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain).

Ferrell is heavily involved with Cancer for College, which provides scholarships for students with cancer. The charity was founded by his college friend and two-time cancer survivor Craig Pollard.
