Which Will Ferrell Character Are You?
The Man With a Thousand Faces...
...and voices, and outfits, and hairstyles, etc, etc... But there is one trait all the Will Ferrell personalities have in common. There are no grown ups here! Every single one of them is just a big kid at heart. And that's what makes him so endearing. If you're a fan of Will Ferrell, and I'm not really sure who isn't, you have to wonder who he's going to be next? There are so many characters to showcase, it was hard to pick a few, and not pick all of them. The following is a (non-comprehensive) list of characters, which you may or may not resemble.
And Now for the Quiz!
Simple and to the point. Which one of the following best describes you? (Pick one):
Read below for your answer.
SNL's George W. Bush
If you picked this one, then you're George W. Bush. He gave us such made up words as "strategery," among many others. So, you know, only wordsmiths, like Will Ferrell's George W , and Dr. Suess, can do that! (No, Sarah Palin, you are not a wordsmith, so stop it.)
(Ferrell's) George W. Bush - "Or like this one time, we shot up a sleeping hobo full of Novocaine, then we'd yell, 'Pie on the windowsill!' And they'd wake up all numb and poor and we'd laugh. But that's just the kind of stuff you do growing up in Midland, when you're a young, precocious little thirty-year-old."
If you picked "unrestricted", then you're Brennan Huff, because nobody seems to be able to tell this guy what to do. He gets an idea, he does it, that's how he rolls, there's no stopping him. Except Dale. For a minute.
Dale Doback: "Why are you so sweaty?"
Brennan Huff: "I was watching Cops."
If you picked "winner", then you're Ricky Bobby. Winning is in your veins, if you can manage to get out of your own way. Remember that winning isn't everything, just look what it did to Ricky. The poor guy lost sight of what the real trophies in life are. Thankfully he got his stuff together. Thankfully it was hysterical to watch.
Ricky Bobby - "If you don't chew Big Red, then f*^#k you."
Saturday Night Live
Who is Will Ferrell's Alex Trebek? If one looks up the word "snarky" online, one would find myriad definitions, but the word "critical" and "disrespectful" are in the top. If one is snarky with a deadpan look and speaks in monotone, such as Will's impression of Alex Trebeck, then one is extremely successful with one's snarkiness.
Alex Trebek: "Welcome back to 'Celebrity Jeopardy'. Before we begin the Double Jeopardy round, I'd like to ask our contestants once again to please refrain from using ethnic slurs. That said, let's take a look at the scores. Sean Connery has set a new 'Jeopardy' record with -$230,000."
Sean Connery: "You think you're pretty smart, don't you, Trebek? What with your dago mustache and your greasy hair!"
Alex Trebek: "Look, what did I just say about ethnic slurs!?"
Land of the Lost
If you picked "expert" then you're Dr. Rick Marshall. Is he really an expert? No, not really, but he is probably the most expert on this list of characters. Collecting hadrosaur urine couldn't have been easy. Keep in mind that being an expert isn't something to get worked up over. When your theories are questioned, it really shouldn't lead to attacking the host of The Today Show. If you're correct, it'll be revealed in due time. So, be patient.
Dr. Rick Marshall - "I'm fine. I'm okay, I just... worked late. Then, I got hungry and I... had several meals and lapsed into a food coma. I've had issues with food in the past."
If you picked "stylish", then you're Ron Burgundy. If you asked Ron the word from the list that best describes him, "stylish" would be the word he would pick. Ron is kind of full of himself. It's okay if you are, too. There's nothing wrong with having a little confidence and adding some style to the world.
Ron Burgundy - "You're so wise. You're like a miniature Buddha, covered in hair."
Blades of Glory
If your pick is "sexy", then you're Chazz Michael Michaels. Sexy is as sexy does, and sexy don't care how flashy the clothes, or how bright the lights, sexy just is. Keep in mind you can have too much of a good thing, and sexiness is no exception. All in all, you could do worse than Chazz. At least, on this list you certainly can.
Chazz - "We're gonna dance to one song, and one song only: 'Lady Humps' by the Blackeyed Peas."
If you picked "wild card" then you're Frank the Tank. You just never know what's going to happen. Maybe a little more control is what's needed. But then again, what's the fun in that?
Frank the Tank - "We're... We're going streaking! We're going up the quad and to the gymnasium."
The Other Guys
If you picked "professional", then you're Allen Gamble. He's just trying to do his job the best he knows how. And there's nothing wrong with that. Except when it's not. And if you don't know when it's not, it's best if you're a character in a movie. That way, no real damage is done. And we get to watch.
Allen Gamble - "At age 11, I audited my parents. Believe me, there were some discrepancies, and I was grounded."
If you picked "brainy" then you're Megamind. He knew he was smart from the get go, but it took him the whole movie to realize that he's a good guy, not a villain. It happens that way sometimes. Hopefully you use your brains for good.
Megamind - "I'm so tired of running rampant through the streets, without you there to stop me. What's the point of being bad when there's no good to try to stop you? I had so many evil plans in the works - the illiteracy beam, typhoon cheese, robo-sheep... Battles we will now never have."
If you picked "family first" then you're Bob Oblong. There is no doubt that he is all about his family. He still manages to support them, even with no arms or legs, just a torso and a head! And no matter what goes on, he never uses harsh language or loses his cool. You could look long and hard for a better role model and probably not find one, no matter where you might look.
Bob Oblong - "Aw, crimany!"
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
If you picked "trigger happy" then you're Federal Wildlife Marshal Willenholly. Sometimes you gotta shoot first and ask question later. Sometimes. Or so I've heard it said.
Federal Wildlife Marshall Willenholly - "Put the monkey down, and your hands up. Let's go, misters. Do you want to get shot? I didn't think so."
If you picked "charming", then you're Cam Brady. I mean, it's not like you get votes just by showing up, you know? Charm goes a long way. After that, you need other stuff. Like a nice smile. Wait, no, that's not it. It'll come to me, give me a minute. Oh, okay. After working your charm and that isn't cutting it anymore, then it's time to grab your bag of dirty tricks. And that's how to be a politician! It's the plot of "The Campaign". And funny how art imitates life, yes?
Cam Brady - "Because Filipino Tilt-a-Whirl operators are this nation's backbone!"
If you picked "trendsetter" then you're Jacobim Mugatu, the mastermind fashion designer with his mind set on ruling the world. Seriously, a world famous fashion designer, it doesn't get more trendsetting than that! Like Mugatu, you don't follow trends, you set them. Just remember, fashion sense doesn't have to make any sense. Got it? Remember that!
Jacobim Mugatu - "Let me show you Derelicte. It is a fashion, a way of life inspired by the very homeless, the vagrants, the crack whores that make this wonderful city so unique."
Eastbound and Down
If you picked "focused", you're Ashley Schaeffer. Truthfully, only someone loaded with laser focus can pull of that hair. Perhaps it's a distraction? And have you ever heard of a successful car dealer who wasn't focused? Me, neither.
Ashley Schaeffer - "Can you feel the tension? I can. I can feel down in my plums."
If you picked "happy", you're Buddy the Elf. Not just any 6'3" person can dress like an elf and still be happy about it. Not to mention the tights! The tights! As in, they're tight! Now that's some kind of happiness! Maybe it's because he was raised by Santa and the elves in the North Pole? Maybe that had something to do with it. Whatever makes you happy, keep doing it! Because happiness is contagious, and we need more happiness in this world, for sure. Which is why we love Will Ferrell, and why everyone loves Buddy. You know, he's not a bad role model, if you think about it. You can't go wrong if you think, "What would Buddy do?"
Buddy the Elf - "We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup."
