Who Is Will Forte, Is He Gay, Does He Have A Girlfriend? His Bio, Age, Height

It is not strange to find sons wanting to put on the shoes of their fathers, but as they always come to realize, everyone must find and walk his path. Will Forte came to this realization much later in his life as earlier, he decided to become a stockbroker like his father. Because the shoe did not fit, he decided to go back and study to become an actor, comedian, and writer – things he has become famous for today.

Although his career began in 1997, he caught the eyes of the public in his early 30s after he became a cast member of Saturday Night Live and then The Last Man on Earth. Since then, he has not looked back on his path.

Bio (Age) – Who Is Will Forte?

Inasmuch as he is popular as Will Forte, the actor and comedian was born Orville Willis Forte IV on June 17, 1970, in Alameda County, California, United States. He decided he was going to use Will as his name after he was continuously teased in school for his name which is rather feminine.

Forte was brought up in different parts of California including Moraga and Lafayette alongside his sister, Michelle Forte. While his father was a stockbroker, his mother, Patti was a teacher. When he was still young, his parents suffered a divorce and his father went on to marry again, but the marriage also ended the same way.

The sometimes goofy actor got his education from Acalanes High School where he was part of the football and swimming teams of the school. By the time he graduated in 1988, his graduating class voted him “Best Personality”. Even though his creative side was obvious to his mother, he had no interest in the TV or anything of the sort and so he decided to get a degree in History at the University of California, Los Angeles.

It was after he graduated that he decided to also become a stockbroker like his father but the whole thing left him miserable, forcing him to call it quits. Will Forte began writing even before he left his job, and he saw that he loved nothing more. To prepare himself even better at improvisational and sketch comedy, he went to the Groundlings.

He began his comedy career with the release of his comic book, 101 Things to Definitely Not Do If You Want to Get a Chick which became a success. Thanks to this, he got a writing job for The Jenny McCarthy Show. But then, the show was shortlived and then he moved to Late Show with David Letterman where he stayed for 9 months before he was dropped.

Forte then took to other things including stand-up comedy and acting while also writing before he joined Saturday Night Live in 2002. He remained there until 2010. As an actor, he appeared in many films including his highly acclaimed Nebraska in 2013.

He has also established himself on TV with appearances on many shows including the animated sitcom, The Cleveland Show (2009 to 2013) and The Last Man on Earth (2015 to 2018) which has earned him three Primetime Emmy Award nominations.

While there are many who wonder if Will Forte who is almost 50 and still not married is gay, there are no indications to support the thoughts. In fact, he has dated a number of women in the past.

In 2000, he was linked to Canadian actress and voice artist Sarah Chalke but nothing came out of the relationship. In 2015, he was linked to January Jones whom he only dated for a few months before they both went their ways.

The next girlfriend of the actor is believed to be Jaimie Alexander whom he dated in 2016. The relationship which only lasted a short while began after Alexander’s split from her then-fiance Peter Facinelli. Since then, he has not been linked to anyone openly.
