only to become a struggling actor losing role after role. He managed to hit a few spots on television, but his real goal was to make it to the big
screen. in 1993 he made his first credited role in the film Rudy where he met his friend Jon Favreau, who was writing a script detailing his life
as an out-of-work actor. Vince was written into Swingers by Jon to play the character of "Trent". He signed on just as a favor to his buddy, not
realizing it would be a career changing role. Though not a commercial success, it was a critical success in which Steven Spielberg saw him
and cast him in the big budget sequel The Lost World: Jurassic Park . This role gave Vince the exposure he needed to become a movie star
and, for the first time, choose the roles he wanted to take. A Cool, Dry Place put him as a loving father, Return to Paradise cast him as a man
having to make a life or death decision to save a friend, and Clay Pigeons cast him as an interesting serial killer. He was even cast as
"Norman Bates" for the 1998 shot-for-shot remake of Psycho.

Since Vaughn's role in the successful 2003 comedy, Old School, his profile skyrocketed, and his notoriety improved. In 2004, he appeared
alongside Ben Stiller in the hit films Starsky & Hutch and Dodgeball, and had roles in 2005's Be Cool, Thumbsucker and Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

Also in 2005, Vaughn starred alongside Owen Wilson in the comedy Wedding Crashers, for which he won the
Delta's Choice Award for best
comedic performance. After this series of roles, Vaughn was dubbed one of the Hollywood Frat Pack, a group of actors who frequently co-star
in film comedies. In 2006, Vaughn starred with Jennifer Aniston in the comedy-drama The Break-Up (also with Favreau).

In 2007, Vaughn starred in a comedy called Fred Claus, in which he played the sarcastic, wild-at-heart older brother of Santa Claus (Paul
Giamatti). Fred Claus was directed by David Dobkin, who previously directed Vaughn in Wedding Crashers, and co-starred Elizabeth Banks
and Kevin Spacey. Next, he momentarily moved from comedy to drama in Sean Penn's critically acclaimed film Into the Wild, a film about the
adventures of Christopher McCandless, which was also a best-selling book by Jon Krakauer. He played the role of Wayne Westerberg
opposite Emile Hirsch as McCandless. Into the Wild also featured Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden, Academy Award winner William
Hurt, two time Academy Award nominee Catherine Keener, and Jena Malone.
