UNFINISHED BUSINESS

VINCE VAUGHN (Dan Trunkman) has become one of Hollywood's most highly acclaimed triple threats - as an actor, producer and screenwriter. A Chicago native, Vaughn first caught the attention of critics and audiences in Doug Liman's independent sleeper hit and cult classic Swingers. He reunited with Swingers screenwriter and co-star Jon Favreau in 2001 as producer and star of the comedy classic Made.

In the summer of 2003, Vaughn starred alongside Luke Wilson and Will Ferrell in Old School, a Todd Phillips comedy sensation that's now become a modern day comedy classic. In the summer of 2004, Vaughn re-teamed with Phillips to star 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. In 2005, Vaughn teamed up with 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 one of the highest grossing R-rated comedies of all time and the ninth R-rated film in cinematic history to pass $200 million domestically. In addition to reinvigorating the R-rated comedy arena, the film went on to become one of the highest selling DVDs of its genre. Just one year later, Vaughn re-teamed with Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin as co-producer of the holiday film Fred Claus, where Vaughn played Santa's disgruntled and bitter brother Fred, who returns to the North Pole after a long absence.

He is currently in production in the second season of the critically acclaimed HBO series "True Detective" alongside Colin Farrell. Netflix recently greenlit the period family comedy "F is for Family," a six-episode animated series from his production company Wild West Picture Show Productions based on the comedy of Bill Burr which will debut in 2015. Vaughn most recently starred in DreamWorks Pictures' Delivery Man, directed by Ken Scott. This is a remake of the original French Canadian film, Starbuck. He also recently made a cameo appearance in Paramount Pictures' Anchorman: The Legend Continues.

In addition to producing the TBS original sitcom "Sullivan & Son," Vaughn's Wild West Picture Show Productions produced and Vaughn narrated the documentary film Art of Conflict: The Murals of Northern Ireland, which premiered at the 2012 Galway Film Festival in Ireland. The documentary tells the story of Northern Ireland's history and the violent Troubles through the unique art of street murals.

In the summer of 2013, Vince starred opposite his Wedding Crashers co-star, Owen Wilson in The Internship, a Shawn Levy-directed comedy that Vaughn wrote and produced for 20th Century Fox. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson were also named Comedy Duo of the Year at CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards that year.

In the summer of 2012, Vaughn starred alongside Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill in The Watch, a comedy about suburban dads from a watch group that unveil a conspiracy to destroy Earth. In January 2011, Vaughn produced and co-starred with Kevin James in The Dilemma, directed by Ron Howard. This comedy-drama follows the arduous psychological battle that Vaughn's character endures when he witnesses the wife of his best friend, played by Kevin James, having an extramarital affair.

In fall 2009, Vaughn co-wrote, and starred in Universal's Couples Retreat. Also starring Jon Favreau, Jason Bateman, Malin Akerman and Kristin Davis, the comedy made over $34 million in its opening weekend - the highest-grossing October comedy release ever.

In 2008, Vaughn served as producer and star once again - this time in Warner Bros. hit comedy Four Christmases. Co-starring Reese Witherspoon, the film follows a disgruntled couple's struggle to visit all four of their divorced parents on Christmas Day. The film opened number one at the box office and has grossed over $156 million worldwide. In 2007, Vaughn starred alongside Sean Penn in Penn's critically acclaimed film Into the Wild.

In the summer of 2006, Vince Vaughn was creator, producer, and star of the hit anti-romantic comedy The Break-Up. The film opened number one at the box office and grossed over $209 million worldwide. Co-starring Jennifer Aniston, The Break-Up was also the first feature film for Vaughn's production company, Wild West Picture Show Productions. The company signed a first-look production agreement with Universal Pictures the following year.

That same year, Vaughn reinvented himself once more when he released his first comedy documentary, Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights - Hollywood to the Heartland. The film follows Vaughn and four stand-up comedians as they travel the country to perform 30 shows in 30 days.

Vaughn's humbling yet impressive scope of successes also includes F. Gary Gray's Be Cool for MGM, where he starred as the scene-stealing Raji, a wannabe rap and R&B music producer. Vaughn also appeared in Doug Liman's Mr. and Mrs. Smith for Twentieth Century Fox as Brad Pitt's best friend. Vaughn's film credits additionally include Thumbsucker, Domestic Disturbance, The Cell, Psycho, Clay Pigeons, Return To Paradise, A Cool Dry Place, Rudy, The Locusts, and The Lost World: Jurassic Park 2.

Vaughn resides in Los Angeles with his wife and children.
