5 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘Elf’, Including The Insane Amount Of Money Will Ferrell Turned Down To Do ‘Elf 2’


Could you imagine Elf without Will Ferrell? That’s like Goodfellas without Robert De Niro or Michael Cera playing Patrick Bateman in American Psycho instead of Christian Bale.

It blows my mind that it took Jon Favreau 10 YEARS to make Elf. Actually, come to think about it, I didn’t even know Favreau was the director of the movie.

Also, I’ll never understand what was going through Will Ferrell’s brain turning down this much money to do Elf 2. He must have been eating Cracklin’ Oat Flakes for breakfast that entire week, tripping his goddamn brain out on ecstasy.
