Will Ferrell as Neil Diamond

He's done his fair share of pedestrian comedy films (á la Rob Schneider and Martin Lawrence) but Ferrell is a master of comedic instinct–like the time when, as lunatic boss Mr Tarkanian, he continued stabbing that office worker with a trident way beyond when it stopped being funny, because he knew it would come around again() .

My favourite of his characters is Neil Diamond. Why? Because it makes absolutely no sense but it's still hilarious.

Few people know that I'm fuelled creatively by my massive hatred of immigrants.
