Will Arnett Early Life
Will Arnett was born on May 4, 1970 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to parents Edith and Emerson James Arnett. His parents were Canadian. Will went on to attend Lakefield College School in Lakefield, Ontario, after graduating from high school; however, he was forced to leave after just one semester due to his disruptive behaviour and was expelled.
He left Concordia University, which was located in Montreal, in 1990 in order to enrol at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, which is located in New York City.
Arnett’s mother supported him in his decision to pursue a profession in acting when he was a youngster. He began by trying out for acting roles in commercials and eventually acquired a passion for the profession.
Will Arnett Career
His first performance in front of the camera was in an independent film titled “Erie” that was directed by Felicity Huffman. He got his start in acting by appearing in a number of series, most of which were either not picked up by networks or were cancelled after a few episodes. 1996 saw the production of his first television pilot for CBS, which starred Kevin Pollak and Lucy Webb. Unfortunately, the show was not picked up.
After some time had passed, he participated in another pilot for “The Mike O’Malley Show” on NBC; however, the show was cancelled after just two episodes had aired. Arnett claims that the year 2000 was the most difficult year of his life, and that as a result of being unemployed during that time, he “drank those years away.”
Will’s struggle with alcoholism began to turn around during the summer of 2000 thanks to the assistance of a buddy. Two years later, he finally obtained a part in a series that would last (“Still Standing”), but unfortunately, his character was eliminated from the programme after the very first episode.
After his fourth failed pilot, Arnett decided he was going to swear off all pilots forever…until he was persuaded to audition for the pilot episode of “Arrested Development.”
In 2003, Arnett competed for and was ultimately awarded the role of George Oscar “Gob” Bluth II on the Fox comedy series Arrested Development. In 2006, he received the first of several nominations for an Emmy for his performance as Gob.
Despite receiving universal praise from reviewers and having a sizable following among fanatics, the programme was pulled from the air after only three seasons due to poor numbers. On “Sesame Street,” he portrayed Max the Magician, and his performance was inspired by the habit that his character Gob Bluth had of playing Europe’s “The Final Countdown” throughout his magic acts. Because of his prominence on Arrested Development, he was offered multiple roles in feature films with greater screen time.
In the film “Let’s Go to Prison,” which was directed by Bob Odenkirk and released in 2006, he made his debut in the major role. The movie grossed more than four times its budget at the box office, and it also made more than thirteen times its budget in rental revenue. The following project for him was “Blades of Glory,” in which he and his wife at the time, Amy Poehler, played a brother-and-sister figure skating duo with an incestuous connection.
The movie grossed $118 million throughout its run in theatres and had the number one spot at the box office for the first two weeks it was released.
In addition, Arnett has appeared as a guest star on the television programmes “King of the Hill” and “30 Rock,” for which he was nominated for a total of four Emmy Awards in the category of Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series.
The films “Spring Breakdown,” “Hot Rod,” “The Comebacks,” and “On Broadway” all featured him in supporting parts. Arnett and Odenkirk worked together once again in the film “The Brothers Solomon.” In “Semi Pro,” the basketball comedy that he co-starred in with Will Ferrell for the second time, he portrayed the role of Lou Redwood.
In November 17, 2009, it was revealed that Will Arnett will make a cameo appearance on an episode of the critically acclaimed comedy series “Parks and Recreation,” in which he would attempt to woo his real-life wife Amy Poehler.
Chris, an MRI technician and a potential love interest for Amy Poehler’s character, Leslie Knope, was portrayed by Will Arnett, while Justin Theroux appeared in the same episode as a different potential suitor. Arnett signed on for one episode, the episode titled “The Set Up” which aired in January of 2010.
Arnett began his acting career in the show “Running Wilde,” which was eventually cancelled due to low ratings in January of 2011. In addition, he featured alongside David Cross in the film “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.” In the same year, Arnett had a recurring role in an episode of the seventh season of “The Office” as well as a co-starring role in the NBC television comedy “Up All Night.” Following that, he had roles in the documentaries “Mansome” and “The Millers,” both of which ran for two seasons, as well as the 2016 film “Flake.” In the 2017 season of the comedy-drama series “A Series of Unfortunate Events” on Netflix, he was cast in the recurring character of Mr. Quagmire.
Because of his very deep and gravelly voice, CBS has included him in a number of promotional videos, trailers, and advertisements. Throughout the course of his career, he has provided the voices of a number of characters in animated films, one of which can be heard in both of “The Lego Movie’s” instalments. Between the years 2014 and 2020, he provided the voices for a number of characters on “BoJack Horseman.”
He has voiced numerous characters on TV and in video games, including “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” and “Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard”. It is anticipated that he will begin co-hosting a podcast with Sean Hayes and Jason Bateman under the name “Smartless” during the summer of 2020.

After only one year of marriage, Arnett filed for divorce from his first wife, Penelope Ann Miller. In the year 2000, he started a relationship with the actress Amy Poehler.
They tied the knot in 2003 and have since co-starred in a number of films and television shows, such as “Parks and Recreation,” “Arrested Development,” and “Blades of Glory.” Together, Arnett and Poehler are the parents of two children. In 2012, they made the decision to publicly announce their divorce. 2016 was the year that saw the conclusion of their divorce.
