Actor, writer, producer. Born Vincent Anthony Vaughn on March 28, 1970 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The son of a salesman father and real-estate agent mother, Vaughn was raised in the wealthy Chicago suburb of Lake Forest. As soon as the lackluster student graduated from Lake Forest High School, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.
Vaughn spent seven years in Hollywood before he landed the role of smooth-operating Trent in 1996's surprise hit Swingers. The irreverent comedy written by co-star and real-life pal Jon Favreau led to a role in Steven Spielberg's The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Vaughn's other notable films include Return to Paradise, Clay Pigeons and Psycho, in which he played the legendary Norman Bates in director Gus Van Sant's controversial remake. Unfortunately, the much-hyped film turned out to be a disappointment both at the box office and among critics.
In 2000, Vaughn appeared in the thriller The Cell with Jennifer Lopez, Prime Gig and South of Heaven, West of Hell, which marked the directorial debut of country singer Dwight Yoakam. Vaughn also re-teamed with Favreau for Made and appeared as a deceptive stepfather in the thriller Domestic Disturbance. In 2003, the actor joined Saturday Night Live alum Will Ferrell for the hit sophomoric comedy Old School. Other popular film credits include Wedding Crashers (2005), The Break-Up (2006) in which he starred with then girlfriend Jennifer Aniston, Four Christmases (2008) and Couple's Retreat (2009).
