Vince Vaughn's Latest and Greatest Roles
Vince Vaughn is a popular American film actor from Minneapolis, Minnesota. He is best known for his roles in romantic comedies like "Wedding Crashers" and "The Break-Up," but he has starred in numerous dramatic films as well. Although Vaughn has been a successful leading man since the late 1980s, his career is going stronger than ever. Here's a look at some of the actor's latest and greatest roles.
In 2013, Vaughn starred as Billy McMahon in "The Internship." Billy and his best friend Nick Campbell, portrayed by Owen Wilson, were once the most dynamic duo in the sales industry. Now, they find themselves hopelessly outshone by a new generation of tech-savvy employees and shopping websites. Determined to prove their skills and knowledge are not obsolete, the pair sets out on an unlikely quest to get internships at Google. While their charm and sales technique land them the coveted jobs, they find themselves immersed in a world of technology and business savvy beyond their wildest dreams.
Immediately after starring in "The Internship," Vaughn will portray Ken Scott in "Delivery Man." This movie focuses on a disastrous mishap at a fertility clinic where Ken regularly volunteered as a donor. A mix-up at the clinic led to Ken's specimens being used to father 553 children, a significant portion of whom have filed class-action lawsuits to find out his identity. Ken is finally getting his lackluster life together when the court case takes place, so he is forced to make the difficult decision to step forward and risk losing everything he has built or leave more than a hundred people wondering about the identity of their biological father.
Vaughn is nothing if not a prolific actor, so it's no surprise that his schedule for 2013 is not limited to one or even two films. The actor has signed on for the pre-production process of "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues." The sequel follows one of the most popular comedy films of all time. The original film starred Will Ferrell as a well-intentioned but utterly bumbling anchorman. The sequel will feature Vaughn alongside the original cast. He will play Wes Mantooth, another anchor competing against Ferrell's character. Vaughn and Ferrell are two well-respected comedians in their own right, so fans of this cult classic comedy franchise are understandably elated about the match-up in the upcoming sequel.
In 2014, Vaughn is expected to star in Ken Scott's new film, "Business Trip." The comedy is said to revolve around a hapless business man whose trip to Europe goes hilariously and disastrously awry. Vaughn will have a major supporting role, but little else is known about the direction the film will take. Fans can look forward to a comedy in the same vein as "Delivery Man," since Scott directed both films. Vaughn and Ken Scott have a great relationship based on mutual respect, and the director tailors roles for Vaughn's unique comedic talents.
The latest film on Vaughn's radar is called "Daddy's Home," a 2014 comedy about a divorced man who can't quite let go of his ex-wife. When the love of his life divorces him due to his controlling, perfectionist ways only to re-marry another man who puts him to shame, he springs back into her life and tries to win back her affections. Ferrell will star alongside Vaughn, his costar in "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues." "Daddy's Home" promises to be a hilarious love triangle of awkward encounters and mishaps between the two hilariously uptight leads as they vie for the affections of the same woman.
With so many hilarious upcoming roles, it's no surprise that Vince Vaughn has such a strong following. Comedy fans can always count on the actor to deliver pitch-perfect performances and to put a charming twist on any role, making it his own. Vaughn is known for his rugged good looks and down-to-earth charm, qualities which have made him into a heartthrob and a comedic lead all wrapped into one. His characters truly represent the average Joe, which makes his comedies even more relatable and fun. From an edgy new film about what happens when a fertility clinic uses the same donor for hundreds of families to a sequel to one of the most beloved cult comedies of all time, Vaughn knows how to keep his fans happy and doubling over in laughter. With a full schedule of films filling out the next two years, Vince Vaughn's star continues to rise with no end in sight.
