Will Ferrell, the famous actor, comedian, producer, and writer, joined Delta Tau Delta Fraternity in college. At that time, he was known for pulling pranks with his fraternity brothers. On occasion, for example, he would dress in a janitor's outfit and stroll into his friends' classes. Ferrell is considered a member of the "Frat Pack", a generation of leading Hollywood comic actors who emerged in the late 1990s and the 2000s. Later in life, Ferrell became the award winning actor known for his performances in television and films including Anchorman, Step Brothers, The Other Guys, Elf, Blades of Glory, and Saturday Night Live.
Former Vice Presidential Candidate, Brother Ryan is a striking example of Delt Leadership. Back in the day, he was already hitting the gym avidly, strolling across the street from his fraternity to get there all while regularly sporting a turtleneck. He has served his Congressional district of Wisconsin since 1998, always winning more than 55% of the vote there. Recently, Ryan was elected Speaker of the House in October 2015, the youngest to be so since 1875.
Actor, voice actor, director, producer, and writer Matthew McConaughey is another famous member of Delta Tau Delta. After graduating from college, McConaughey went on to star in films such as Dallas Buyers Club, Insterstellar, Gold, and Dazed and Confused.
