MACGRUBER

WILL FORTE (MacGruber/Written by) has established himself as one of the most versatile comedy actors in film and television. He recently began his eighth season on Saturday Night Live. Forte also recently completed the comedy A Good Old Fashioned Orgy for Endgame Entertainment, in which he co-stars opposite Jason Sudeikis. He was most recently seen in Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, written and directed by John Krasinski, and lent his voice to Sony Pictures' hit animated film Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.

During his time at SNL, Forte has produced many memorable sketches. He has showcased his singing talents as an unhinged "Fly High Duluth” bandleader with a penchant for chugging Jack Daniel's. He's created lasting characters in The Falconer—the once-successful executive who has mysteriously chosen to live in the woods with his faithful falcon Donald—and the very soft-spoken politician Tim Calhoun, as well as the creepily naïve office worker, Neil, whose ventures outside of work with colleague Jean quickly turn perverse. Forte has also brought life to MacGruber, the resourceful-albeit-distractible man who can disarm a bomb with just about anything.

Forte wrote and starred in the feature The Brothers Solomon, opposite Will Arnett and SNL cast mate Kristen Wiig. His additional film credits include Baby Mama, The Slammin' Salmon and Beerfest. 

Forte recently had very memorable guest-starring roles on the hit comedies How I Met Your Mother, NBC's award-winning 30 Rock, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! and on HBO's The Flight of the Conchords. He also lent his voice to a handful of animated series including FOX's The Cleveland Show, from creator Seth MacFarlane, and FOX's recent animated sitcom Sit Down Shut Up, from creator Mitchell Hurwitz, as well as MTV's Clone High.

Forte came to SNL from Los Angeles' improv-sketch theater The Groundlings, where SNL alum Chris Parnell and former cast mate Maya Rudolph got their start. Forte has a great deal of experience behind the camera, serving as a producer on That '70s Show and as a story editor for 3rd Rock From the Sun and Action, as well as working as a writer for Late Show With David Letterman and the MTV Movie Awards.

Forte currently divides his time between New York and Los Angeles.
