There are some actors I avoid like the plague. Show me an Adam Sandler movie, for example, and I’ll show you a 33-year-old woman walking out on your Netflix and chill night faster than you can say, “Little Nicky.” There are also actors who I love. Actors who I will gladly see in any movie they appear in. We’re talking Meryl Streep, Ryan Gosling, and yes, Will Ferrell.
I don’t know how to explain it, but despite avoiding man-children as a general rule, I love every bananas man-child that Ferrell plays in every movie, TV show guest role and SNL skit he’s ever done. Maybe it’s his unhinged intensity, maybe it’s the fact that with his curly hair and blue eyes, he kind of looks like an overgrown toddler. Whatever the reason, Ferrell’s comedic chops mean that basically, any line he utters becomes instantly quotable.
Well, since everybody’s favorite man-child turns the big 5-0 on July 16, we thought we’d celebrate the many characters he’s played over the years — and you can test your Will Ferrell fandom too.
Just how well do you know this comedic powerhouse? To find out, try to correctly match the quote with the Will Ferrell character who said it. Good luck!
