Will Forte has established himself as one of the most versatile actors in film and television. For his work on 'The Last Man on Earth', he was nominated for a 2016 Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and in 2015 he was nominated for both Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for the comedy seires. He was also nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award in the category of Best Actor in a Comedy Series in 2015 and 2016 and received two 2016 WGA nominations.

Forte has just completed 'Extra Ordinary', the debut feature from writer/directors Mike Ahern and Enda Loughman starring Forte, Maeve Higgins, Barry Ward, and Claudia O’Doherty. 'Extra Ordinary', will screen on Saturday 13th July @ 8 pm at Town Hall Theatre as part of this year’s Galway Film Fleadh programme.

Forte recently starred in the David Wain-directed feature film 'A Futile and Stupid Gesture'. Forte is also known for his starring role in the feature film adaptation of 'MacGruber', co-writing the script alongside Jorma Taccone and John Solomon. Other film credits include the recent comedy 'Keanu'; Peter Bogdanovich’s 'She’s Funny That Way', opposite Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson; 'Life of Crime' opposite Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, Tim Robbins and Isla Fisher; 'Run and Jump' which debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival and won the Best Irish Feature Award at the Galway Film Festival; the Adam Sandler Netflix comedy 'The Ridiculous 6', as well as 'That’s My Boy' opposite Sandler and Andy Samberg; and 'The Watch' opposite Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, and Vince Vaughn.
