Vince Vaughn (born March 28, 1970 in Minneapolis, Minnesota) is an American actor. He grew up in Lake Forest, Illinois and was interested in theatre at a young age. He obtained a role in a Chevy television commercial early in his acting career and felt for sure that he was set. After moving to Hollywood, he became a struggling actor facing rejection after rejection. He appeared in a few spots on television but finally got a speaking role in the movie Rudy in 1993.
It was while filming Rudy that he met Jon Favreau, who was working on the original draft for his movie Swingers. He wrote Vaughn into the film and he signed on as a favour to Favreau, only for it to become Vaughn's breakthrough role. Steven Spielberg saw him in Swingers, and cast him in The Lost World: Jurassic Park, which game him an amount of exposure. From there, Vaughn went on to make A Cool, Dry Place and played Norman Bates in the 1998 remake of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. In 2000 he starred in The Cell with Jennifer Lopez and Made in 2001 (another Favreau film).
