Why Do White People Love Will Ferrell?

Seriously, I don't get it. He's alright and even really amusing sonetimes, but I don't ever hear Black or Mexican people talking about how they have to go see the next Will Ferrell movie. I haven't seen hordes of Japanese school girls lining up to take pictures of him with their surgically implanted digital cameras. It is another unexplainable White phenomona, like the reelection of W. The only reason I can think of is that both people look like they probably drink too much and that is when they are at their most amusingly stupid, and White folks like to drink. If there are any White people out there in Cyberland that would like to explain any of this to me as something different then my own hypothesis please comment.

I think white people like Will Ferrel because we are always looking for the next Steve Martin. Steve Martin was great because he was wacky and weird and his antics could make a grown man blush even if you were sitting, wathcing him all by yourself. I'm not saying that WF is SM. Not by a long shot. But he happens to be the latest comic to play the "wacky" card. It's like the John Bullishi (spelling?) "big man" syndrome. Honestly, Chris Farly wasn't that funny but he played the "big-man" card.

Aside from Elf and his cameo in Zoolander, I haven't much faith in Will Ferrell. And for both of those movies I give much more credit to the directors Jon Favreau and Ben Stiller than the actor.

I liked the supporting cast of Anchorman much more than him. Talladega Nights is not on my must-see list.

Is Will Ferrell the white Martin Lawrence?

I thought his best work was during his time on SNL. The cheerleader character was one of my favorites. I've also typically liked WF as a ensamble player. Old School was hilarious and his character on Ancherman was good, however, those movies are good because of the entire cast.

oh yeah! Old School rocked.
But it makes your point that I didn't think of him in it, it was the ensemble.

I love ancorman and have Will Ferrel in my top 10 actors of all time. I am not sure what you guy's problem is.
