Will Forte was brought up in a middle-class family in Moraga by his father, Orville Willis Forte III, a financial broker, and mother Particia, a former schoolteacher and artist. Later the family moved to Lafayette, where he attended elementary school. From an early age, he showed an interest in comedy, with idols such as Steve Martin, Peter Sellers, among others. He matriculated from Acalanes High School in 1988, then enrolled at the University of California – Los Angeles, from which he graduated with a BA degree in History and where he became a member of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. He started to work the same job as his father, but his career went to comedy, thus he began attending classes at the improvisational comedy group, the Groundlings.

He soon started writing, and managed to publish a comic book, entitled “101 Things to Definitely Not Do If You Want to Get a Chick”, which propelled him further into the writing world, securing him a job as a writer for the “Jenny McCarthy Show” (1997). After a short stint, Will found a job as a writer for “The Late Show With David Letterman”, however, after only nine months he was fired. Will started writing for “3rd Rock From The Sun” (2001-2002), and then “That 70`s Show” (2002), but in the same year he was discovered by Lorne Michaels, the creator of “Saturday Night Live”, who invited Will to audition for the show, and Will subsequently became a regular star of the show until 2010, which increased his net worth to a large degree. During the show he created numerous characters, of which special operations agent McGruber was most popular, and which later formed the base for the film “MacGruber” (2010). His latest writing credit is the TV series “The Last Man On Earth” (2015-2016), which has also increased his net worth.

Apart from his career as a writer, Will has also made numerous film and TV appearances, starting in the role of Abe Lincoln in “Clone High” (2002-2003). His first film role was in the “Around The World in 80 Days” (2004), and two years later he featured in the film “Beerfest”.
After his tenure at SNL ended, he became a popular comedy actor, securing roles in such productions as “MacGruber” (2010), “A Good Old Fashioned Orgy” (2011), and “She’s Funny That Way” (2014).

He has also been recognized as a voice actor, lending his voice to characters in popular TV series such as “American Dad” (2009-2015), “Lab Rats” (2012-2015), “The Awesomes” (2014-2015), and “Gravity Falls” (2012-2016), among others, all of which added to his net worth.

Regarding his personal life, there is little information in the media about Will Forte’s love life, except the fact that he dated Sarah Chalke in 2000. According to sources, he is currently single and lives in Santa Monica, California. Will is also known for his charity work, as he supports the camp Wampler’s Kids, SciEyes, as well as serving on the Board of Directors of the National Policy and Advocacy Council on Homelessness.
