Vince Vaughn

Biography

Leader of the Hollywood Frat Pack, Vince Vaughn stands tall (6' 5") and is handsome and successful. Vince has achieved celebrity by starring in a slew of comedies such as 'Old School,' 'Starsky & Hutch,' and 'Dodgeball' with the fellow Frat Pack members like Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Will Ferrell, and Wilson Brothers (Owen & Luke).

Born on March 28, 1970 in Minneapolis, Vince is the youngest child to Vernon Vaughn and Sharon DePalmo (a Canadian-born broker was ranked as one of the top money managers by Bloomberg Wealth Manager Magazine, in US). He has two older sisters, Valerie and Victoria. Vince wanted to pursue the career as a professional athlete (water polo) but back injury due to a car accident at 17 derailed his plans and by 18, he had decided to become an actor and headed to the West coast.

Nicknamed Mr. Sunshine (aptly too), Vince's journey from being a struggling actor and facing many rejections, to being a successful and much admired actor is truly inspiring. He began acting in the late 80's and appeared in small TV roles before getting noticed and swung to stardom with the movie, 'Swingers' in 1996.

Hollywood Calling
His first movie role was in 'Rudy' (1993), and went unnoticed. It was the independent film 'Swingers' (1996) that earned Vince critical acclaim. Soon afterwards, Steven Spielberg cast him in 'The Lost World: Jurassic Park' (1997). 'Jurassic Park' only brought Vince some amount of exposure. Vince played Norman Bates in the remake of 'Pyscho' (1998) which was a disappointment at the Box Office as well as 'A Cool, Dry Place' (1999). As a result, Vince took some time off to regroup.

His comeback movie 'The Cell' (2000) with Jennifer Lopez was visually appealing but couldn't win the audiences. In the following year, he re-grouped with Favreau for the gangster movie 'Made' (2001). Vince's characterization of Ricky proved to be the centerpiece of the movie. The thriller 'Domestic Disturbance' (2001) highlighted Vince's acting talent in the role of a villainous stepfather.

Realizing it was time to change gears again; Vince turned to comedy and acted in Todd Phillips' 'Old School' (2003) and 'Starsky & Hutch' (2004) with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. 'Dodgeball' (2004) confirmed what many knew. Vince was the best when it came to comedy genre. With 'Be Cool' (2005) the sequel to 'Get Shorty,' Vince gave one of his most hilarious turns. He also played a small and very amusing role in the action blockbuster 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' (2005) starring Pitt and Jolie. The year 2005 also saw Vince act in the biggest earning movie of his career so far, 'Wedding Crashers.' With 'Break-Up' (2006) came the break-up of Vince and Jennifer Anniston relationship.

Currently, Vince is a well-established actor and the leader of the comedic Rat Pack style of clique of actors who team up together frequently.

I just wanted to see if Vince ever needs a stunt double or something, because everyday I have strangers come up to me and tell me I look like him. Plus I think he seems like a very cool human being and it would be great to meet him.
