Comedic actor Will Ferrell has appeared in a number of motion pictures since his big-screen debut in the 1997 Mike Myers vehicle Austin Powers International Man of Mystery. Over the last two decades, movies in which Ferrell has played a significant role have generated more than $2 billion in box office sales, with an average of nearly $69 million per picture.

As a live action performer, Ferrell enjoyed his most considerable successes with Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby in 2006 and Anchorman 2 in 2013. Talladega Nights depicts Ferrell as the titular Ricky Bobby, a talented NASCAR racer who finds a formidable rival in Formula One driver Jean Girard, portrayed by Sacha Baron Cohen. The movie generated more than $148 million at the box office.

In 2013, Ferrell appeared in a sequel to the 2004 comedy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, which had made $85 million for DreamWorks. Anchorman 2 increased on that gross by almost 50 percent for a box office total of over $127 million. Ferrell also has contributed his vocal talents to successful animated films such as The LEGO Movie and Megamind, which grossed $257 million and $148 million, respectively.
