Vince Vaughn is a comic actor who seems to embody many of the attributes of his generation; easy, outgoing, embarassing, serious, silly — all of it. His films do surprisingly well at the box office.

Vaughn's mother Sharon was a successful stockbroker, while his father Vernon was a salesman for a toy company. After spending some time in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, the family moved to Lake Forest, Illinios, a posh suburb of Chicago. While in high school, Vince played football, baseball and wrestling, but also took drama classes, whereupon, he decided to become an actor. He graduated in 1988.

After being cast in a Chevrolet commercial, Vaughn moved to Hollywood, and was cast as a driver on an episode of China Beach with Dana Delany, aired over ABC in September 1989. Being cast in Rudy (released in October 1993) with Sean Austin, brought Vaughn into contact with fellow actor Jon Favreau, and the two have been pals ever since.

Vaughn starred in an unsold pilot for a reboot of 77 Sunset Strip to be aired on The WB in 1995, but the show never materialized. Then, both Vaughn and Favreau starred in director Doug Linman's ultra-low-budget comedy hit Swingers (released in August 1996).

Swingers was so successful, that Vaughn was suddenly working with director Steven Spielberg, starring in The Lost World: Jurassic Park (released in May 1997) with Jeff Goldblum.

Vaughn then went the other direction into indie land, starring in A Cool, Dry Place (released in December 1998) with Monica Potter. The film made zero dollars. He then played Norman Bates in director Gus Van Zant's remake of Psycho (released in December 1998 ) with Anne Heche.

Vaughn starred in Tarsem Singh's directoral debut, The Cell (released in August 2000) with Jennifer Lopez, then co-starred and co-produced with Jon Favreau (who wrote and directed) in Made (released in August 2001).

Vaughn played the affable Evil Step-Father in Domestic Disturbance (released in November 2001) with John Travolta. He then starred with Luke Wilson and Will Farrell in the comedy Old School (released in February 2003).

He played the bad guy dope smuggler in Starsky & Hutch (which played the Chinese in March 2004) with Owen Wilson, then played the Good Guy in Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (released in June 2004) with Ben Stiller as the Bad Guy. . .

Vaughn played a sort-of Bad Guy in Be Cool (which played the Chinese in March 2005) with John Travolta. Reuniting with Swingers director Doug Liman, Vaughn played a hitman and Brad Pitt's pal in Mr. & Mrs. Smith (released in June 2005).

Perhaps Vaughn's most successful comedy is Wedding Crashers (released in July 2005) with Owen Wilson; the film was a huge hit, allowing him to become a producer and co-star of The Break-Up (released in June 2006) with Jennifer Aniston, which became another big hit.

Vaughn played a weirdo boss (is there any other kind?) in Into the Wild (released in October 2007) with Emile Hirsch, then was co-producer and headlined in Fred Claus (which played the Chinese in November 2007) with Paul Giamatti.

He co-produced, co-wrote (with Jon Favreau) and starred in Couple's Retreat (released in October 2009) with Malin Akerman as his wife; the picture did pretty well. Vaughn starred in The Watch (which played the Chinese in July 2012) with Ben Stiller.

Vaughn co-produced and co-wrote the script and starred in The Internship (released in June 2013) with Owen Wilson; for director Mel Gibson, Vaughn starred as a brutal drill instructor in Hacksaw Ridge (released in November 2016) with Andrew Garfield. He played a wrestling coach in Fighting with My Family (released in February 2019) with Dwayne Johnson.
