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.
Vince was most recently seen in Mel Gibson’s WWII drama Hacksaw Ridge, which was nominated for 6 Academy Awards and 3 Golden Globes.
