VINCE VAUGHN (Gary Grobowski / Story by / Produced by) uses a potent
combination of charm and charisma and has made his mark among today's generation of
talented young actors and producers.
Vaughn recently starred opposite Owen Wilson in the runaway comedy hit
Wedding Crashers. With a domestic box office take of over $208 million, the New Line
Cinema release is the second highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time and only the
sixth R-rated film in cinematic history to pass $200 million domestically.
Created and produced by Vaughn, The Break-Up is also the first feature film for
his Wild West Picture Show Productions, which was established in 2005. Under the
banner, Vaughn recently completed shooting the documentary feature film, Vince
Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights—Hollywood to the Heartland
Tour. The film chronicles Vaughn and four stand-up comedians, on- and off stage,
traversing the country on a tour bus while performing 30 consecutive nights in 30 cities.
In the summer of 2004, Vaughn starred opposite Ben Stiller in the hit comedy
Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. The film opened number one on its way to grossing
$114 million at the box office. He was also seen in the role of villain Reece Felman in
Starsky & Hutch, re-teaming with his Old School director Todd Phillips. Starring
alongside Luke Wilson and Will Ferrell, Old School kept audiences laughing all summer
in 2003 and has become a modern-day comedy classic.
Vaughn also starred as the scene stealing Raji, a wannabe rap and R&B music
producer in F. Gary Gray's Be Cool for MGM. The ensemble cast included John
Travolta, Uma Thurman, Cedric the Entertainer and Andre 3000. Vaughn was also in
Doug Liman's Mr. & Mrs. Smith for Twentieth Century Fox. In the box office hit,
Vaughn played Eddie, the best friend of John Smith, played by Brad Pitt. He also
appeared last fall in the independent film Thumbsucker, alongside Keanu Reeves and
A Chicago native, Vaughn first caught the attention of critics and audiences in
Doug Liman's independent sleeper hit and cult classic Swingers. In 2001, Vaughn
reunited with Swingers screenwriter and co-star Jon Favreau in the comedy classic Made,
for which he also served as producer.
Vaughn's other film credits include Domestic Disturbance, The Cell, Psycho, The
Prime Gig, Clay Pigeons, Return to Paradise, A Cool, Dry Place, The Locusts, and
