For the last 20 years, Will Ferrell has been crushing it. From Saturday Night Live and Funny Or Die to Old School, Anchorman and, of course, Elf, Ferrell has emerged as one of the world's most prolific and popular comics. Still, in spite of how familiar Will has become, there remains a lot that you might not know about him. His dad, for instance, is a lifelong musician. He's played with The Righteous Brothers and surf kings Dick Dale and the Del-Tones, not to mention Stevie Wonder. Will and his brother were raised by a single mom. And Will himself is a family man: married to an auctioneer, with three young boys. He can count Jay-Z & Kanye and Rob Ford among his many fans. And while Will himself may have reservations, the Toronto Mayor has a fan in his newscasting alter-ego Ron Burgundy... who’s unpacking his jazz flute for the new film Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
