Early Life

Will Arnett was born in 1970 in Toronto, Canada on May 4, 1970 to Edith and Emerson James Arnett. After graduating high school, Will attended Lakefield College School in Lakefield, Ontario, but he was asked to leave after one semester for being a troublemaker. He dropped out of Concordia University in Montreal and moved to New York in 1990 to attend the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. As a teenager, Arnett was encouraged by his mother to pursue an acting career. He auditioned for commercials around acting and developed a love for acting.

Career

He landed his first onscreen role in an independent movie by Felicity Huffman called "Erie". He began acting in several shows that weren't picked up by networks or were canceled after several episodes. His first television pilot was shot in 1996 with Kevin Pollak and Lucy Webb for CBS that was not picked up. A few years later, he was in another pilot for "The Mike O'Malley Show" on NBC, but it was canceled after just two episodes. In 2000, Arnett experienced the darkest year of his life, saying that as a response to not getting any work he "drank those years away." In the summer of 2000, a friend helped pull Will out of his battle with alcoholism. Two years later, he finally landed a role in a series that would stick ("Still Standing"), but his character was written off the show after the 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."

Arnett won the part of George Oscar "Gob" Bluth II in the Fox comedy series Arrested Development in 2003. In 2006, he was nominated for his first Emmy for his role as Gob. Due to low ratings, the show was canceled after just three seasons despite its overwhelming critical acclaim and massive cult following. In a nod to his character Gob Bluth's penchant for using Europe's "The Final Countdown" during his magic shows, he played Max the Magician on "Sesame Street." His exposure on Arrested Development led to several larger roles in feature films. In 2006, he starred in his first leading role in "Let's Go to Prison," directed by Bob Odenkirk. On a budget of $4 million USD, the film earned more than that at the box office and more than $13 million in rentals. Next up was "Blades of Glory," in which he and his then-wife Amy Poehler starred as a brother/sister ice skating pair with an incestuous relationship. The film was No. 1 at the box office during its first two weeks and made $118 million during its theatrical run.

Arnett also guest-starred on television shows "King of the Hill" and "30 Rock," for which he was nominated for four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. He earned supporting roles in the films "Spring Breakdown," "Hot Rod," "The Comebacks," and "On Broadway." In "The Brothers Solomon," Arnett again teamed up with Odenkirk. In his second film with Will Ferrell, he played Lou Redwood in the basketball comedy "Semi Pro." On November 17, 2009, it was announced that Arnett would try to win over real-life wife Amy Poehler in a guest spot on an episode of the popular comedy series "Parks and Recreation." Arnett played Chris, an MRI technician and possible love interest for Poehler's Leslie Knope, with Justin Theroux appearing in the same episode as yet another suitor. Arnett signed on for one episode, the episode titled "The Set Up" which aired in January of 2010.

Personal Life

Arnett divorced his first wife, Penelope Ann Miller, after a year of marriage. He began dating actress Amy Poehler in 2000. They married in 2003 and starred on several projects together, including "Parks and Recreation", "Arrested Development" and "Blades of Glory". Arnett and Poehler have two children together. They announced their separation in 2012. Their divorce was finalized in 2016. In June 2020, it was announced that Arnett's girlfriend, Alessandra Brawn, had given birth to his third son.
