Always cool, hysterically annoying and never dull, Vince Vaughn is one of the most entertaining stars in Hollywood today. His omnipresent aura of good-natured fun seems to rub off on anyone working with him or watching his films. A self-made Hollywood bad boy, Vince has been reported in his share of bar fights over the past years, but his disregard for control has only allowed him to grow into an even bigger celebrity. After graduating from high school as a class president in danger of suspension, Vince moved to Los Angeles with the hopes of becoming a star. Before getting his big break with friend Jon Favreau in the indie hit, “Swingers,” Vince appeared in a number of popular television shows like “21 Jump Street” and “Doogie Howser, M.D” while continuing to lose out on parts in the films “Alive,” “School Ties” and “Dazed and Confused.”
As Trent in “Swingers,” Vince became an overnight role model for young men all over the world, creating a flawless and fearless swinger who could get any of the girls’ digits and still help out his buddies in the meantime. After the film became a national hit through the video rental stores willing to carry a few copies of it, Steven Spielberg was impressed with his performance and offered him a role in the sequel to “Jurassic Park.” Vince became a genuine star in no time, stealing roles like cookies from a jar for bigger features like “Psycho,” while still keeping it real in more demanding, independent roles. His recent connections to other star comedic actors like Ben Stiller and Will Ferrell have allowed Vince to help in producing some of the funniest comedies in years. It’s hard to compare Vince to any other working actor in the business because he’s one of a kind, but if it was possible to combine the comedy team of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis into one person, you’d be getting very close. Coming off a number of immensely successful hits over the past few years, Vince Vaughn is unstoppable. Baby, he’s money.

Vince on the Screen
With out a doubt, Vince's charming screen presence and effortless acting chops have taken him from a no-job zero to a box office hero. Struggling in the business for many years, Vince finally got his first big break when he was cast in the Notre Dame football drama, "Rudy." It wasn't the role in that film that pushed him up the ladder though, but rather his "Rudy" co-star Jon Favreau. After becoming friends with Jon on the set, the two went on to make "Swingers" in 1996, an independent hit that slowly exploded within hip, gossip circles. Steven Spielberg caught Vince's performance and instantly cast him in the "Jurassic Park" sequel, "The Lost World." Vince then went on to star in big-time films like "Psycho" and "The Cell" before re-teaming with Jon Favreau again in 2001 with "Made." After briefly appearing in Ben Stiller's "Zoolander," Vince concentrated on making comedies once again, having starred in "Old School" and "Starsky and Hutch" in the past years and forming a comedic team with the film's actors that will continue to make fans laugh for years to come.
Vince has always managed to keep himself busy with a non-stop schedule of both mainstream and independent films, but now that he has secured a steady role as part of the Comedic Rat Pack (made up of Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell and the Wilson Brothers), the future of his career is secured with the combined popularity and success of all five men. Fans of the wild actor can catch him in the new holiday comedy "Fred Claus" this year, while three more films are currently in some stage of production: the David O. Russell comedy "The H-Man Cometh," the Hank Azaria-directed "Outsourced," and yet another holiday film, "Four Christmases."
"If I'm not interested in a woman, I'm straight-forward. Right after sex, I usually say, 'I can't do this anymore. Thanks for coming over!'"
