Will Ferrell first caught our attention in 1995 on Saturday Night Live. After seven hilarious seasons, Will was one of the most popular cast members. His hysterical impersonations of President Bush, Jeopardy host Alex Trebek, and former Attorney General Janet Reno were dead-on. And who could forget his character Craig, the intense Spartan cheerleader?
Will made his film debut in the mega-hit Austin Powers. He streaked his way into our hearts, baring it all as the not-so-grown-up frat boy "Frank the Tank" in the smash comedy Old School. And he cracked us up in the Christmas blockbuster Elf. Among starring roles in other films, Will also mastered a 1970s chauvinistic newscaster in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
Now he's romancing Nicole Kidman in Bewitched.
So what was it like making the remake of the classic sitcom? "We had a great time right from the beginning," Will says. "We got to rehearse for two weeks, I think, which was so important. You don't often get to do that, especially with comedy."
And how was making Bewitched for Nicole? "We just got to play," she says.
