Will Ferrell has been quietly poking around Broadway, looking for a theater for a show he's writing and will star in next fall.
Details are sketchy, but sources say Ferrell was captivated by "700 Sundays," Billy Crystal's hugely successful autobiographical one-man show that ran on Broadway.
The Ferrell Project will be autobiographical and include anecdotes about the comedian's work on "Saturday Night Live."
Ferrell also will do some of his fabled impersonations - of George W. Bush, Robert Goulet, Neil Diamond, Jesse Ventura and "Inside the Actors Studio" host James Lipton.
