In 2003, Ferrell gained movie stardom with the release of his hit holiday comedy, "Elf." He also starred in a slew of other popular comedies, including "Old School," "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" and "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby."

Ferrell changed pace when he starred opposite Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson in the 2006 drama "Stranger Than Fiction," which earned him a Golden Globe nomination. In the film, Ferrell plays Harold Crick, an IRS worker who continuously hears a narration of the story of his life -- and he doesn't like the ending.

Ferrell returns to film this summer in the adventure comedy "Land of the Lost," a big-screen remake of the 1970s TV series.

  • This is Not a Review of "The Lego Movie"

    UCLA alum Will Forte feels sorry for undereducated USC fans Saturday

  • The Ron Burgundy marketing blitz

    Anderson Cooper salutes him as a "news legend." Wolf Blitzer calls the journalist "one of the most influential anchors in broadcast history." Chris Cuomo from the "New Day" desk adds: "On camera, he's the best. But off camera, he's a bit of a [bleep]!"...
