The actor is being honored by the MTV Movie Awards tonight at 9PM/8C with the Comedic Genius Award. While Will Ferrell is obviously deserving of an award that honors his comedic chops, we think that it’s just as appropriate to give some shine to his sexiest moments on film. We’ve pulled together the best moments that would challenge any nominee of the award for Best Shirtless Performance. Move over, Channing!
1. Saturday Night Live: Sculpture Class (1998)
In this hilarious skit about a sculpture class, Will plays a homeless nude model much to the students dismay. As he hulks in front of the class (and bares his rear a couple of times) he suddenly feels an urge… “Uh oh, mighty Kong has woken from his slumber!” Sexy!
2. A Night At The Roxbury (1998)
In the SNL skit-turned-movie, Ferrell plays one-half of the “Roxbury guys” who enjoy frequenting LA nightclubs. Obviously these swingers need to buff and tan to snatch up all the attention at the clubs.
3. Saturday Night Live: Patriotism (2001)
Rachel Dratch and Seth Meyers were lucky enough to get an up close and personal look at Ferrell’s butt when he donned an American Flag thong to show just how damn patriotic he is.
4. Old School (2003)
In the film that recalled the joys of fraternity life, Ferrell embodied Frank The Tank from beer bong to campus streaking. We’ll never get that butt out of our memories.
5. Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy (2004)
Ladies and gentlemen, can I please have your attention? I have an urgent news announcement that Ferrell is in a skimpy bathing suit and about to cannonball into the pool. This concludes this urgent announcement.
6. Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby (2006)
Although he didn’t get shirtless in this film, Ferrell did us one better: He made out with Sasha Baren Cohen. It was so glorious, it had to be GIF’d.
7. Blades Of Glory (2007)
Not only did Ferrell don skin-tight costumes on the ice in Blades Of Glory but he also rewarded fans with a shirtless scene opposite the always adorkable Jon Heder.
8. Semi-Pro (2008)
Ferrell brought out the big guns for Semi-Pro. He went full on Burt Reynolds in the film, hiding behind a strategically placed basketball. And no one can forget all that hair… on top of his head.
9. Step Brothers (2008)
What’s brotherly rivalry without naked drumming? Ferrell jumped behind the set for some epic razzing of co-star John C. Reilly. Some balls may have made their way out later in the film but no one needs to see that again.
10. Casa De Mi Padre (2012)
In the Spanish-language film, Ferrell upped his sexy appeal as a Armando Alvarez. How did he know that we’d swoon for his accent?
