Top 13 Will Ferrell Roles

Will Ferrell's new flick, The Other Guys, opens this Friday. To get you ready, we decided to take a look at his past roles. Here are our 13 favorite Will Ferrell roles:

13. McDermott, The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard
12. Jackie Moon, Semi-Pro
11. Mustafa, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
10. Franz Liebkind, The Producers
9. Jackie Moon, Step Brothers
8. Mugatu, Zoolander
7. Harold Crick, Stranger Than Fiction

6. Lance DeLune, The Ladies Man
The moment that Barney walks into the Victims of The Smiley Ass meeting and Lance glides over to him you sense his power. You sense his passion. You sense, well, that he is a champion Greco Roman wrestler and was scorned by The Ladies Man and hell hath no fury like a Greco Roman wrestler scorned.

Am I right? Dude had the balls to blow up Leon's houseboat/love den with only a shrug and a "Wow,we really didn't think that through."

I don't think there is anything Lance DeLune can not do. He sings, dances, AND he hoards lots of cash. I would say his only downfall is that he is a Greco Roman wrestler.

To paraphrase Lance: "Are you sure don't want just a little bit of the oil?"

5. Chazz Michael Michaels, Blades of Glory
Fire and ice, baby. Fire and ice.

Jenny: Alrighty, I pretty much fell in love with the quotes... Like when Chazz was referred to as an ice-devouring sex tornado. Bwahahahaha!

A Vapid Blonde: I kind of fell in love with the crazy sex-addicted sewer-skating ditz that he is. I mean really, "It's mind bottling?" How cute is that? I am pretty sure Chazz's heart is as big as his hair. Which, by the way, did you catch the name of his brush?

He shoots flames from his hands at the end of every performance, which would be so impressive if I could do that just to punctuate my own awesomeness. If I had awesomeness.

Jenny: Oh yeah... My favorite line? Not by Chazz, nor Jimmy, but by Jimmy's stalker. I am totally gonna use it someday: "I totally want to cut off your skin and wear it to my birthday. It's coming up."

A Vapid Blonde: That line totally made me snort my coffee out of my nose! The way it was delivered, so creepy and cowardly and CREEPY. Just brilliant. But back to Chazz Michael Michaels.

Jenny: Chazz had acquired 4 national championships & an adult film award.

A Vapid Blonde: Bow chicka wow wow.

Jenny: And the announcers with their acclaim, ohmygawd. Tsunami of Swagger. Sex on Ice.

A Vapid Blonde: My favorite announcer moment? When they successfully completed The Iron Lotus and no one died. The "NOT Scott Hamilton" announcer said, "I just peed myself" or my pants (honestly I was watching this in fast forward at this point so everything was hysterical and kind of intelligible).

Jenny: Jimmy told him, "You smell of aftershave and taco meat." Chazz told Jimmy, "I see you still look like a 15 year old girl, but not hot."

I swear, this is not unlike how my husband and I talk to each other. "Did you just call me fat?" "No, I just said your neck was fat."

A Vapid Blonde: See, the really endearing part of this movie is how their relationship develops. They go from hating each other to really, really, REALLY caring about each other, something I feel happens in many relationships. My husband just marvels at the inane things that come out of my mouth but knows I still have his back. Just like Chazz will tell Jimmy that he is not a girl because he is stronger too, and doesn't have a vagina. Chazz IS the ice-devouring sex tornado but in the end, Jimmy stands out on the ice alone, knowing Chazz will show up, because Chazz Michaels and Jimmy MacElroy *are* figure skating. --Jennyonthespot and A Vapid Blonde

4. Buddy, Elf
What can I say? There is something simply... uh... simple... about Will Ferrell's role as Buddy in Elf. Buddy is the antithesis of complex. Refreshing. I need more simplicity in my life. And also refreshment.

"Is there sugar in that? Then YES!" I. Love. Buddy. And I love Will.

You know what I love MOST about this movie? When my kids want to have a movie night, it usually means cartoons... and movie night become about THEM and not ME. *lame* But they love Elf as much as I do, so it's always a great big *fist bump* when Elf is the movie night choice!

Plus, I believe this movie is teaching my children the finer points of high-quality comedy. Hitherhencetofore, it is also an educational movie. Is there Awesome in that? Then YES! --Jennyonthespot

3. Frank Ricard, Old School
Frank "The Tank" Ricard is a guy who's having a hard time leaving single life behind for married life: "Well, uh… I guess deep down I'm feeling a little confused. I mean, suddenly you get married and you're supposed to be this entirely different guy. I don't feel different. I mean, take yesterday for example. We were out at the Olive Garden for dinner, which was lovely. And uh, I happen to look over at a certain point during the meal and see a waitress taking an order, and I found myself wondering what color her underpants might be. Her panties. Uh, odds are they're probably basic white, cotton underpants. But I sort of think well maybe they're silk panties, maybe it's a thong. Maybe it's something really cool that I don't even know about. You know, and uh, and I started feeling... What? What? I thought we were in the trust tree in the nest, are we not?"

Like 95% of the characters Will Ferrell plays, Frank is dim-witted and childlike but also big-hearted, endearing, and totally lovable, despite his shortcomings. We all know someone like Frank. Hell, after a few adult beverages, some of us might become Frank.

Old School is one of those movies that if I come across it while flipping through the channels, I'll decide to watch "just a few minutes of it" and end up watching the entire thing. And it's all because of Frank "The Tank" Picard. Pure comedy gold.


2. Ricky Bobby, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
Talledega Nights is one of the rare dumb comedies that makes me laugh, every single time. The cast has some of the funniest people on the planet (Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Gary Cole, Jane Lynch, Jack McBrayer, Leslie Bibb, Sacha Baron Cohen, Andy Richter, and Amy Adams for crying out loud). The one-liners just kill me ("I like to picture Jesus in a tuxedo t-shirt because it says I want to be formal, but I'm here to party"). And I think foul-mouthed little kids are the funniest (see also Will Ferrel's "Pearl the Landlord" web skit). If you think otherwise, I'm gonna come at you like a spider monkey! --Archphoenix

1. Ron Burgundy, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
Ron Burgundy is an asshole.

He drinks. He smokes. He philanders. He drinks milk on hot days. He's a barely literate newsman who looks down on just about anyone in his orbit.

Yet somehow we love him.

This is the genius of Will Ferrell's egomaniacal creation. He is a man from a simpler time. With brightly colored suits and bushy 'stache, Ron Burgundy's mission in life is to bring the news to the people of San Diego The Whale's Vagina... and look good while doing it. He's the ultimate underdog: the guy who doesn't know he's an underdog.

He's a man's man that puts the Old Spice guy to shame. Forget Brokaw, Williams, Couric or even Murrow and Cronkite. There are no other newscasters. There is only Ron Burgundy. --Daddy Geek Boy
