The great Will Ferrell has been doing funny things in movies ever since Mike Myers dropped him into a pit of fire in the first “Austin Powers.” Every subsequent role has led to this Sunday, when Ferrell will receive the first-ever Comedic Genius Award at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. Well-deserved!

Before we celebrate the hilarity of John William Ferrell (born 1967 in Irvine, California), however, we’d like to spend some time on a less appreciated character trait–his manliness. We’d argue that Ferrell is Hollywood’s biggest brute, more masculine than any musclebound meathead. And here are the GIFs to prove it.
